Kuk Sool Won Traveling Masters


What is Kuk Sool?

Kuk Sool is a comprehensive martial arts system that is derived from the rich and varied martial arts techniques and traditions that have developed in Korea throughout the past 2000 years. Kuk Sool is not a sport, nor is it simply another oriental self defense method; Kuk Sool is a complete martial art that is dedicated to the cultivation of mental and physical strength and well being and to the preservation of traditional Korean martial arts. Grandmaster In Hyuk Suh brought Kuk Sool Won, the origins of which may be traced back to antiquity, to the United States in 1974. The World Kuk Sool Association, headquartered in Houston, has since grown to include more than 900 member schools in Asia, Europe and the Americas and continues to increase in strength and numbers daily.

For self defense, Kuk Sool is unsurpassed. It combines kicking, punching, throwing, falling, choking, joint-locking, and a myriad of weapons techniques into a beautiful and dynamic “hard-soft” style emphasizing speed and fluidity. In conjunction with physical training, meditation, breathing, acupressure, and acupuncture techniques are employed to improve and maintain health, to develop internal power, and to retard the aging process. Philosophically, Kuk Sool stresses humility, self-discipline, self-control, loyalty, and respect for others. Together, these three aspects of Kuk Sool provide the means for attaining a long and healthful life.
