Welcome to Lightning Force Haidong Gumdo

Welcome to our website. My name is Peter Cook. I have been involved in Korean martial arts for over thirty years and have successfully run Tae Kwon do schools for much of that time. I have been interested in weapons for many years, having grown up with TV shows like The Samurai, so I jumped at the chance to learn Haidong Gumdo.

Choosing a name for a martial arts school is not an easy task. We chose Lightning Force to imply speed and power which comes to practitioners of this extremely fluid and dynamic martial art.

So please have a look at this site and contact us if you have any questions.

What is Haidong Gumdo?

Haidong Gumdo is a Korean sword art which draws from battlefield tactics and techniques to build a curriculum for mental, physical and spiritual development. Students learn forms, step drills, sitting and moving meditation, sparring as well as bamboo and straw cutting. Unlike Kendo and its Korean equivalent, Kumdo, the focus in Haidong Gumdo is not duelling but on the tactics of outdoor, pitched battles. Powerful, complex and beautiful, Haidong Gumdo is a wonderful style which can be pursued throughout your life. Read more >>
