Looking to fill up my seminar calendar further! This is a fun, no experience necessary seminar for those interested in learning the sword. There are dates open through the end of the year and into early 2019.
Let me know if you’re interested in attending! School owners are encouraged to host and see what the program might do to help your school. There are two versions available! Version 1 – a three hour that presents the white belt curriculum Version 2 – a full weekend that details the white belt curriculum and more.
Brooklyn Center residents, Mark and Sarah Wurdeman, placed first and/or second in every event that they competed in during the Arnold Sports Festival 2018 held in Columbus, OH.
The international event hosted several hundred competitors in over 40 martial arts divisions. Mark and Sarah, students in Taekwondo (Korean Karate) and Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword) at White Tiger Martial Arts, headquartered in Fridley. Both are senior students and instructors there.
Mark placed first in all four divisions that he competed – Tang Soo Do forms, Traditional Taekwondo forms, Weapons and Target cutting. Sarah had the misfortune of competing against Mark in three of the four divisions and against black belt ladies in another. Sarah will test for her black belt in Taekwondo in May 2018.
White Tiger Martial Arts focuses on the personal development of each student and uses tournaments as a way to challenge knowledge/understanding plus provide an opportunity to spend time with like-minded martial artists.

About 10 days ago, I was interviewed by the Sword Experience podcasters for an episode. It was released today (Monday April 2, 2018) as part of episode 5. The hosts were fun and the whole experience was something new.
So, today I received the appointment to b the Co-Director of the Gumdo/Kumdo division of the Arnold Sports Festival/Battle of Columbus. this is a great honor bestowed by Supreme Grand Master Choi. T am honored to work with Senior Master Robert Gross on this event. He is an awesome martial artist and I believe that we’ll make it a success.
