11-06-2016: 1^ Finnish Haidong Gumdo National Championship!

On the 11th of June 2016 we had our First Finnish Championship! It was great to be there, congratulation to everyone for your efforts!

The official opening of the championship started with some demostrations, first Hapkido.

And after that, Haidong Gumdo.

One of the disciplines of the championship was forms, both for color belts…

… and black belts!

Followed the paper cutting part…

… and then candle snuffing. Power and control are the key to turn of a candle with your sword!

The last two discipline have been ball throwing (with the sword, of course!)

and sword dance!

I hope you enjoyed the videos, now you can take a look at the pictures! 🙂 Everyone did their best and we had a lot of fun!
