Kumdo (Korean Sword) Cutting Action: at one of my centres Indooroopilly, Brisbane, Australia. This cut is a double cut. The second cut is on the mat as it is falling. We used a thin mat of bamboo (approx 6cm), which allows the mat to propel off the stand and fall to ground quicker. The speed of the cutting is about 0.4 of a second to complete both cuts... ...this is really good training for my golf swing speed actually. If you like to see with Music:
Thanks again to Master Bradley, Master Mark, Instructor Shirly, Instructor Steph and Assistant Instructor Christine for making the trip up the range to help run another successful Toowoomba grading! Thanks also to the Toowoomba Sun Bae Black Belts Callum, Ben and Jiho.
The Gold Coast open is one of the largest tournaments in Australia and no doubt one of the best with over 500 competitors. There are also many international competitors. Sun Bae was represented by Shirly Sieh and Essi Suomalainen from Brisbane's Newmarket centre. Gold medals all around!
