Fifteen hundred years ago, there were three kingdoms in Korea. These three kingdoms fought amongst each other. Each developed their own style of martial arts.

Kum Ye Do combines two styles from that time – Korean swordsmanship along with sword dancing.

In 1981, Grand Master Jang and others got together and formed Kum Ye Do. They studied a lot of Korean Martial Arts history and techniques to form the art of KumYeDo.

KumYeDo provides many benefits to its students such as improved personal, mental, and physical health. Mental and physical discipline is achieved through practicing and training. The mental training teaches you that there is no winner or loser – you rise above that way of thinking mentally. Through KumYeDo, training, fear, dread, and terror leave your mind.
