Historically, swords have been used as a tool for hunting and/or as a weapon for wars throughout ages in different techniques and forms depend on time periods and countries. Yet, these differences are combined into one purpose of training one’s mind and physical body as sports in modern days. Simplified explanation of Kumdo is a sword fighting martial art. Korean ancestors had enjoyed team matches, even in the King’s palace under the name of Bong-Hee (棒戱) or Gyek-Gum(擊劍 – Wooden Sword Fighting). Hwa Rang in Shilla dynasty evidently trained Gyek-Gum as their mandatory requirement, which is explained by the “Bon-Guk-Gum-Bup (本國劍法)”. Along with Bon-Guk-Gum-Bup, we have no doubt that Josun Sebup became the foundation of modern sword fight called Kumdo. As the member of Korea Kumdo Association, KUMDO USA is dedicated to spread the disciplines of true Kumdo spirit in the main stream of the United States.
