Group of Gumdo Instructors and Students

Our Organization

We are part of The World Haidong Gumdo Federation, an organization dedicated to spreading the art of Haidong Gumdo throughout the world.

We teach the fighting skill of the Samurang swordsmen, who lived in the Koguryo kingdom of what is now South Korea nearly 2,000 years ago.

Mr. Jeong Ho Kim, modern founder of Haidong Gumdo and President of the World Haidong Gumdo Federation, learned Haidong Gumdo from a spiritual wanderer named Jang Baek-san and became its champion, making it popular first in Korea, and then spreading it throughout the world.

Grandmaster Kim has established nearly 500 Haidong Gumdo dojangs in South Korea and well over 1,000 schools in 30+ other countries.
