Hi, Folks: I have been doing a bit of editing on this article as I found the English as bit stilted. I hope the result flows a bit better. I will also be doing a bit to add some pictures, contribute citations and expand the terminology. I could use some oversight here since Korean is not my native language. Best Wishes. --Bruce W Sims (talk) 23:17, 9 March 2013 (UTC)[reply]

What is the exact point of existence of this page?[edit]

Kumdo is complitely just a kendo of japanese by korean pronunciation and very little minor change like flag of color is different or clothes is little different or so. It is ridiculous. Kumdo is clearly nothing but a kendo in Korea.

 Even Haidung Gumdo is not a korean ancient swordmanship or so at all. It is just a wrong.

 It was founded at 1983 and originated in japanese kenjutsu with little minor change. They are basically using japanese katana sword and Hakama uniforms and add of chinese kang fu move without much meaning in it. Haidung gumdo was saying that Haidong Gumdo attributes its history to Balhae/Parhae as opposed to Koryo and ancient Korean samrang went japan and became japanese samurai or such lies over and over again. There is no written historical records on the swordsmanship of Balhae kingdom. Haedong Gumdo’s origin is in modern history post Korean War of 1983. And it is copy of kendo add showily kicking to make it look like unique. (talk) 20:35, 25 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Speaking to you and to future readers:
What does the scholarly consensus say? Without inferring things yourself I mean. Like do the majority of international (non-Japanese and non-Korean) scholars explicitly say that Kumdo is not distinct from Kendo? If so, then you're right and this article should potentially be renamed "Kendo in Korea" or something similar. But if you're not going to do that research, don't bother with the claim. Original research is not allowed on Wikipedia. toobigtokale (talk) 03:50, 17 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]
