Hey there! I'm Jeanne, a student at Davidson College in North Carolina. I've been practicing Kumdo since 2014, and have a 1st dan Black belt from the Korea Kumdo Association. I've also received 2nd place in the Individual Women's Division at The 25th Fall Eastern US Kumdo Championship (2019). I am very passionate about Kumdo, as it has benefited me in so many ways. In hopes of sharing my passion for Kumdo with others and spreading awareness for the rather unique and unfamiliar martial art, I have created a free series on Udemy! Through this series, I hope the tips and tricks I share bring light to the value in learning martial arts, especially Kumdo.
