GMA Martial Arts Center Kumdo Sword (Privates Only)

Kumdo is a modern Korean martial art originating from Japanese Kendo.

As a martial art, Kumdo has become accepted in Korean culture and society since its introduction from Japan to the degree that the term “Kumdo” has, in recent history, become a generic label for other Korean martial arts based upon swordsmanship.
