Korean Sword is the art of swordfighting. Join our instructor, Stephen Smith, in this introductory class in which basic sword techniques and stances will be taught and drilled with emphasis on control, endurance, speed and strength.  A typical session begins with extensive warmup, then basic training, a series of repetitive cuts and stances, followed by traditional patterns (forms). This class is entirely non-contact , please come prepared for intensive physical exercise. Students are encouraged to purchase their own wooden practice swords (bokken, mokgum) available through our business office, however there will be some bokkens for borrowing at the start of the course.
