Martial Arts Institute and Fitness Kummooyeh Sword and Archery Overview


Sword forms are a core element of Martial Arts training, teaching the student many of the necessary skills needed when fighting (sparring). Through set movement patterns, the student develops discipline, concentration, endurance and power, all without physical contact or risk of getting hurt. These skills are essential to everyday life, and to practicing Martial Arts.

The theory and practice of the sword are harmonized in cutting. Speed, accuracy, power, footwork and concentration of intent. Cutting is the Art of Swordsmanship in practice.

Sparring is the application of all sword practice, against an opponent. All elements of Kummooyeh are essential for effective sparring. Speed, reaction time, accuracy, judgment, mental and physical control. The student must apply all their knowledge and skill to overcome an opponent.

Korean traditional archery is a unique form of archery practiced only on the Korean peninsula. It is the evolution and result of many unique individual influences which have occurred in the country’s history. Nowadays Korean traditional archery is practiced as a martial art primarily for self-control and mental training rather than focusing on practical use for hunting or as a combat weapon.

Taught a pattern of breath control, the student will learn to slow their heart rate, and calm themselves when under pressure. Sitting meditation then advances to the practice of Kichon, a form of moving meditation, where the student develops a strong control over the self.
