What is Gumtoogi?

For Hundreds of Years, Kumdo and Kendo Fighters have followed a strict tradition of fencing, restricting attacks to the head, body, wrists and throat.

Gumtoogi is a ground breaking evolution in Eastern Sword Fighting Philosophy. Innovated by 8th Dan Grandmaster Taejoon Lee, this new application of Sword Fighting is the first in history to include leg strikes, completely changing the way two warriors face off against each other. Gumtoogi is also the only Sword Fighting System that matches competitors with different sword types against each other; from long swords, short swords, twin swords, and many other weapon combinations.

This new weapon fighting system is unique only to Hwa Rang Do®.
