Kumdo 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 & standing meditation and cutting (paper, fruit, straw & bamboo). This is a non-contact martial art that is fast paced for good workout but is low impact, which makes it suitable for many age groups. Classes are taught by Grandmaster Instructor Kevin Kastelle
The W.T.A. also offers classes in Bo Staff, Nunchuks, and Kamas. Classes are taught by 3rd Degree Black Belt Mr. Stuart Jones.
