What's Included

This class explores a style of eastern swordplay associated with chop-saki swashbuckling action films. Based in the fundamental sword techniques of the Korean martial art of Haidong Gumdo (meaning “the way of the sword”), this class explores the parallels and differences in performance based “broadsword” techniques and choreography. In this, the western style stage broadsword-play, where the sword serves as a weapon of weight, and offensive actions are generally met with opposition parries, is set aside and replaced with more fluid techniques Level: Intermediate Weapon: Special
