Kuk Sool Won™ is a comprehensive, traditional Korean martial art, founded in 1958 by Grandmaster SUH, IN HYUK, 10th Degree Black Belt. It has now become a world-wide organisation, with thousands of students training in schools in many different countries.
Kuk Sool is based on three indigenous traditions of Korean martial arts which are:
At the heart of Kuk Sool training is the development and use of ‘Ki’ (internal power). Special Ki training exercises are performed to stimulate and generate this mystical life-force energy which empowers the student with greater physical and mental strength.
The technical syllabus of Kuk Sool is vast and comprehensive and includes: hand and foot strikes to vital points, forms, throwing, falling, joint locking, pressure points, sparring and a myriad of weapons techniques that together merge into a beautiful and dynamic hard-soft style emphasising speed and fluidity. Other techniques such as: meditation, breath control, acupressure and acupuncture are employed to improve and maintain health, develop internal power and slow down the ageing process.
Philosophically, Kuk Sool stresses humility, self-discipline, self-control and respect for others. Together, these different aspects of Kuk Sool provide the means for attaining a long and healthy life.
