What are some of the benefits of Kuk Sool Won?

Physical fitness, self-defense, self-esteem, improved memory, concentration & academic study habits, to name a few.


How does Kuk Sool Won differ from karate?

Our system is a comprehensive study of all Korean Martial Arts, and its techniques are used in many law enforcement agencies across the nation. We offer a world class, two-year instructor candidate course that must be completed to certify as an instructor.


Why do you think Kuk Sool Won is for everyone (all ages, men, women, and children)?

People of all ages can learn to reach their full potential by emphasizing self-defense, health, fitness and character development in a friendly, safe and positive environment. While adults may join to fulfill health & fitness needs, children just want to learn & have fun. Meanwhile, their parents want them to learn respect, determination & how to be a leader.

We’ve recently expanded our training space from 3,000 square feet to a 10,000-square foot training center. We now have fourteen amazing instructors. These are just two reasons we’re able to offer the finest martial arts training facility in the area.


What’s the best part of what you do every day?

I witness people actively improving their lives. Whether it’s a weight problem being reversed, a stressful habit changing for the better, a child reducing or eliminating the need for ADHD meds, or just instilling mental strength in someone to help them overcome a disease ó that’s where I find an abundance of rewards!


Can interested families or individuals try a class before officially enrolling?

Absolutely! Prospective members can take a complimentary trial class.


What would a new member receive when they enroll?

Each member receives a new member package that includes a uniform, student handbook, a car decal, VIP passes for their friends, a World Kuk Sool Association membership card, as well as the opportunity to train with an excellent team of instructors who lead by example.
