 Summary

Korean Sword and Weapon Arts DVD is a rare look at some of the oldest documented martial arts of Korea. In this fascinating DVD, the National Demonstration Team of Kyung Dang, led by Grandmaster Im Dong-kyu, reenacts the sword, stick, spear and empty hand arts of ancient Korea.

The weapon forms demonstrated here are based on those illustrated in the classic Korean martial arts manual, Muye Dobo Tongji.

Practiced by the King's special forces over 500 years ago, these sword and weapon arts were adapted from ancient Japanese and Chinese martial skills developed by Korean warriors during the Yi Dynasty.

This one of a kind DVD performance begins with a variety of sword arts originating in Korea, Japan and China in the 1500s through 1700s. Next, the masters of Kyung Dang demonstrate rarely seen Korean weapons such including the spear, crescent sword and shield.

You'll also be treated to a performance of Kwon Bup, believed to be one of the earliest documented forms of Korean empty hand martial arts.
