Gumdo Sword Training

gumdoclass1-640x369

For KTA students that have achieved their 1st Degree Black Belt, we offer Gumdo Classes.  Gumdo is the Korean Martial Art of Sword.  Many aspects of the training and testing are very similar to taekwondo – forms, terminology and sparring.  All aspects involve the use of a variety of swords.  Training also involves snuffing candles without touching them in multiple methods using control and precise accuracy.  Accuracy is also tested by slicing newspaper in the center utilizing various cutting techniques.  Sparring is full contact with heavy padding, gloves and helmet with metal face guard.
