Strong, smart, good martial art

We practice the most comprehensive traditional Korean martial art in order to train the body, the brain, and the heart.

Striking

From punching and kicking to precision strikes on various points on the body.

Conditioning

Routines that develop strength and flexibility and fluid movement.

Grappling

Self-defense techniques for a wide variety of situations.

Tumbling

Recovering from a nasty fall is only one of many practical skills.

Weapons

Staves, swords, spears, bows, even ropes and canes consist the arsenal.

Focus

Kuk Sool Won™ is not only a good workout, it teaches mindful practice, how to direct one's attention on command, and how to identify when focus is fading within oneself.

Discipline

Due to the challenging nature of the martial art, Kuk Sool Won™ encourages self-directed practice, and has built-in tools to push oneself and help develop the discipline required not only to complete a task but to do it well.

Integrity

Drawing from traditional practices, the ranking system and rules of formal etiquette help develop respect and humility. In addition, the curriculum instills the confidence and sense of responsibility required to dispel confrontations.

“Kuk Sool is engaging both the body and the mind and because of that I am progressing towards a goal and not just exercising.”

—Carol Hunter

Kuk Sool Won has a storied history, straight from the source.

A little more than 50 years ago, Kuk Sool Won™ Grandmaster In Hyuk Suh set out on a mission to preserve traditional Korean martial arts. He collected knowledge from a wide variety of sources (from tribal leaders, royal court officials, and Buddhist temples) and developed a comprehensive curriculum. From there he brought it to the United States, where it spread around the entire world. Now it's recognized by the South Korean government as the best Korean martial art and is in the process of being considered for inclusion to the Olympics.

“My daughter is very quiet, but she looks out for all of her friends and no one bothers them. After all, she's a black belt.”

—Sam Martin

Kuk Sool Won is not just a martial art...

it's a lifestyle.

Keyword: "Life." It's evolved from its martial origins to become about sustainable health and wellness in addition to practical self-defense. Because it's designed to be a lifetime martial art, anyone from 5 to 85 can benefit from practicing Kuk Sool. No need to "get in shape first." Our instructors are trained to accommodate a wide variety of skill levels and limitations, and, more importantly, how to slowly and mindfully push those forward.

“Kuk Sool Won has helped me grow a stronger mind.”

—Noel Atkinson, 5
