About Kuk Sool Won™
The traditional martial art of Kuk Sool Won™ is relatively unknown in the UK but is so much more than just another martial art. Kuk Sool Won™ is a complete martial arts system with a fundamental focus on self-discipline and respect.
As a martial arts system, Kuk Sool Won™ covers the entire spectrum of the traditional Asian fighting arts and techniques for body conditioning, as well as mental development and traditional weapons training. Essentially, if you combine the skills of Aikido with Judo throwing principles and Jiu-Jitsu locking and joint breaking techniques. Add the mastery of Kobudo weaponry together with the devastating kicks of Taekwondo and mix with Karate hand strikes and the falling acrobatics of Shaoling. Then you might have something which begins to resemble the fantastic Korean Art of Kuk Sool Won™.
