Why Kuk Sool Won
Martial Arts?

   With dozens of different martial arts offered in the area, why is Kuk Sool  of the Upstate my BEST CHOICE for martial arts training?

     "Martial Arts" is a very broad term and can encompass many different types of techniques -- 

       from the striking and kicking of Tae Kwon Do and Karate, 
       the throwing and grappling techniques of Hapkido, Judo and Jujitsu or 
       the exotic weapons and animal-style techniques of Kung Fu.  

While it would ordinarily be necessary for you to attend several different schools in order to get all of these different techniques . . .

At  Kuk Sool Wonwe offer them all -- and MUCH MORE in a single comprehensive program!


Coordinated as a full body work-out, Kuk Sool training combines many different types of exercise - flexibility, strength training and cardio - into a single, energetic workout program.


Self defense is all about options, and that is one of the strong points of Kuk Sool. In addition to the many dozens of different strikes and punches associated with most martial arts, the fundamental techniques of Kuk Sool are designed to attack the weak points on an opponent’s body: his joints and pressure points.



As an organization, Kuk Sool Wonis only about fifty years old (about the same as Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and other styles of Korean martial arts), but the history and traditions of Kuk Sool stretch back many hundreds of years into the martial history of Korea, drawing on the three main root systems of Korean martial arts: Tribal or Family Martial Arts, Buddhist Martial Arts, Korean Royal Palace Martial Arts.

 Kuk Sool includes elements of technique and training unavailable from any other martial arts training program in the Upstate area.
