I can answer questions about the technique, theory, and history of Haidong Gumdo, which is a traditional Korean sword martial art. I am also knowledgable about Chinese Wushu, and Shaolin Kung-Fu . I also have some experience with Kendo and Iaido. So if you have questions related to asian swordsmanship, I`d love to hear them!
I have a 3rd degree black belt in Haidong Gumdo, and I have been practicing since 2000. I have studied Kung Fu since 2003.
Honors undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Psychology from Queen's University.
I would like to gain enough expertise in korean kumdo to teach it semi-professionally. I also hope to achieve my 4th degree within the next 5 years of training.
