Kummooyeh, also called Kumdo is the most traditional martial art offered in Cadre Academy. It consists of many types of training for different purposes for students: such as meditation, basic footwork, sword patterns, cutting, sparring techniques and traditional Korean archery.
It is a unique martial art developed from the ancient Korean elite warrior class who dedicated their lives to the study of the sword in protection of their country.
All the movements in Kummooyeh are graceful and dynamic. Training focuses the mind to deliver strikes of balance in speed, power and accuracy.
Kummooyeh is also fun and exciting when sparring your opponents and learning to put out candles from the wind of their blade.
