It's Korean pronauceation of KENDO

Japanese are angry too.

Kendo was originated from Korea !?
Kendo is the way of the sword.
You might think that kendo was originated from Korea. That is definitely wrong. Although Korea conveyed swords from China to Japan, Japan has the root of kendo. Japan invented the unique Japanese sword "Nihonto", and developed the unique sword techniques which were called "Kenjutu" and "Iaido". Furthermore, for the practice of kenjutu, Japan invented the unique equipments, "shinai", "do", "tare", "kote" and "men". Japan developved "Kendo" as sport or budo from kenjutu. Kendo is the Japanese original culture which Japanese people has created taking about 1000 years. It is loved by people all over the world.
Kendo was introduced to Korea by Japanese during the Japanese annexation, the first half of the 20th century. Kumdo is just a Korean pronauceation of kendo. Its name is written with the same two Chinese characters, and its techniques and rules are identical. There are no differences between kendo and kumdo. Kumdo is all the same thing as kendo.


Korea - The Black Ships of Kendo : written by a well informed New Zealander.

South Korea is cribbing off many things from foreign countries, what's more, the trouble with Koreans is that they always assume the origins without respect.
