Since ancient times, Korean people have respected swords because they believe that swords can prevent evil spirits and bad luck. Kummooyeh (Sword martial arts), which has a long history and tradition, is a precious traditional martial art of the Korean people.

Kummooyeh uses swords known as Kum.  Technically, single-edged swords are called Do, and double-edged swords are classified as Kum. However, all blades can be called "Do" or "Kum" and are used interchangeably. All martial arts using swords can be called Kummooyeh.

Kummooyeh is based on loyalty, filial piety, respect and righteousness.  The Muye Dobo Tongji includes weapon systems such as Yedo (sharp sword), Ssangsoodo (long sword), Bongukkum (Korean sword), Jeadokkum (commander/admiral sword), SsangKum (double sword) and Deungpae (shield).  Kummooyeh is heavily influenced by the Yedo (sharp sword) system including Deungpae (Shield), and Woldo (moon blade) systems and archery.
