The 8 Martial Arts of Oom Yung Doe: Kom Do (Samurai Sword)
More information on Kom Doe from the Oom Yung Doe student handbook
KOM DO CHEA is best described as the beginning Kom Doe movement.
Kom Doe is the "Samurai" sword. KOM DO CHEA is the
bamboo practice of Kom Doe which allows the student to actually
spar with weapons.
An actual Kom Doe can weigh up to 90 pounds. The individual must develop
his/her knowledge of the movement through practice with the KOM DO
CHEA before he attempts to practice with an actual Kom Do. The movements
are straight and direct, moving from one point to the other. The individual
develops an acute mental alertness with strong physical power through
this type of practice. All DAZE and sparring movements will improve
from practice with a KOM DO or KOM DO CHEA.
