Hwang-Yong Haidong Gumdo

What is Haidong Gumdo?

Haidong gumdo is a Korean sword martial art. A total of four words in the name can be translated as follows:

Hai- sea
Dong - east
Gum - sword
Do - the way (from Chinese Tao)

It is therefore the "Korean sword path from the eastern sea" where the sun rises. The morning dawn symbolizes something newborn and bright light.

Haidong gumdo draws on Korean culture and martial traditions that date back to the mighty kingdom of Goguryeo. It was this kingdom that for centuries defended the entire Korean peninsula from the mighty China from swallowing the unique Korean culture.

Yet haidong gumdo is a modern Korean martial art founded by Grandmaster Kim Jeong Ho, a fusion of Goguryeo swordsmanship traditions and Korean culture. Grandmaster Kim entered the Cheoninam Buddhist monastery in the Gwanak Mountains on the outskirts of Seoul at the age of 8 (1961), where he met his teacher, monk Jang Baek San, who taught him primarily through routines and historical stories. Grandmaster Kim opened the first dojang on 24 July 1982 in Anyang, south of Seoul. Less than two years later on April 10, 1984, the Korean Haidong Gumdo Association was officially established in Seocho, Seoul.

In order to spread this martial art worldwide, the World Federation of Haidong Gumdo was founded on November 25, 1996, and in November 2000, it sent the first Haidong Gumdo teacher, Master Han Sang Hyun, to Europe (Portugal), who through his efforts spread the Korean sword to many European countries and became the founder of the European Federation. The technical director of the European Haidong Gumdo Federation is another Korean master, Lee Chul Kyung. Thanks to this master and the Polish master Mariusz Bil, who contacted the Czech Taekwon-Do master Martin Zámečník, the first seminar was held in Prague at the Campanus Elementary School in November 2017. Since then, Master Zámečník has regularly travelled to Poland to meet Master Bil, Master Lee to Switzerland and France and Master Han to Korea, inviting these teachers to the Czech Republic several times a year for seminars and camps. In 2019, Martin Zámečník became the first black belt holder in the Czech Republic, founded the first Hwang Yong school in Prague and conducted the first yellow belt examinations for his students (Tereza Danielisová, Lenka Seménková, Tereza Koubková).

If you are interested in becoming a pioneer of Czech haidong gumdo, learning this complete Korean martial art and learning to control not only the sword but also yourself, come to the training. Don´t be afraid to take the first step!!!
