My name is jonny edvinsson, the first time I test on martial arts i did know that it would be my life style...
 

When I step in to the dojang. I remember the screams, the smell of sweat, the atmosphere filled with considerable concentration and the practising girl in blue/red belt who made that cool technique, with a balance of speed, power and respect to his opponent, but I saw that the technologi had a clear deadly purpose.
However, I got a feeling of great community, all have fun despite the hard dynamic training and I remember also, it was qviet in the dojang, the students have focus on what their master instructs, in order to mastery the new techniques... Sure, in a while I will be one of them! 

Serveral decades have passed, I’ve collected lots experience and my black belt has successively become grey. I have not satisfied myself with just practicing only one style, but I have mastered three martial arts styles. Haidong gumdo, Jiu-jitsu and Hapkido I trained other disciplins as well, such as Jangbong and Daenamu Bong sul, Bo-Jo jutsu and Kungfu long weapons for many years, where the foundation is in my long weapons experience. Unfortunatebly I have not been able to grade myself in these weapons, because there has been no system with only long rod weapons.

I have a great passion for martial arts overall an long stick is probably one of the favorites. My experience with long stick and that there aren’t that many long rod weapons styles to train, then it was obvious to me to create and found a martial art, weapon art and a modern sport.
