I am curious about the differences, the issues and the thoughts anyone has on these two arts. I just saw a kumdo video on youtube and it made me curious.

You might want to post a link to that video. Kumdo apparently comes in multiple flavors. Some is exactly the same as kendo. Some is very different.

I understand that Kumdo is Korean Kendo. The equipment are all kendo from shinai (practice sword) to bogu (armor). I'm not aware of any differences in the rules of competition, but kumdo practitioners have been invited to kendo tournaments.
I think it's a similar situation to Korean Judo being known as Yudo.
