Haidong Gumdo

Yang style Tai Chi Chuan is an internal martial art. It’s smooth, slow, even circular movements show intent rather than force. Tai Chi is an entire body exercise that is continuously moving from one graceful movement to the next allowing chi or vital energy to flow unimpeded throughout the body.

About Us


Haidong Gumdo is a modern style of Korean swordsmanship, focusing on fluid and powerful sword techniques to engage multiple opponents as if in a “battlefield” setting. The techniques in this sword art are realized through forms, solo and partner drills, and cutting exercises (e.g., candle snuffing, paper cutting, bamboo cutting) and are combined with various meditation exercises.

Our Programs

Dalton had its Grand Opening in September of 1990. Classes originally began in the Dalton Fire Company Banquet Hall. After three years in the Dalton Fire Hall, Ryu Pa Dalton needed a more permanent location. The building formerly known as the Dalton Carpet Shop was purchased and renovated for the karate school’s activities. Student after student began to enroll in the school. After 20+ years in business, the school has over 100 active students and has trained hundreds.

In the Lil’ Dragons Program, your child will learn and grow in a process that accommodates their skills and abilities. Our Lil Dragons program will enhance Positive Development in a Fun, Safe and Motivating Way. For Ages 3-6 years old.
