Kuk Sool is the most complete Martial Arts System in the Rochester region, emphasizing self-discipline, respect, and education first! Kuk Sool is not a sport, nor is it simply another Asian self defense method. Like karate, Kung Fu and Tae Kwon Do, Kuk Sool teaches kicks, punches, body conditioning and valuable self-defense skills. But we go much further! Kuk Sool is a complete martial arts system that is dedicated to the cultivation of mental and physical strength and well-being, and to the preservation of traditional Korean Martial Arts.
The techniques in Kuk Sool Won are drawn from hundreds of years of Korean martial arts history. The product of 31 indigenous styles of Korean martial arts from the three primary cultural sub-groups — Family Martial Arts, Buddhist Temple Martial Arts and Royal Palace Martial Arts — Kuk Sool Won offers a perspective and curriculum of martial arts training that is not available anywhere else.
Kuk Sool Won is often described as a “living history of the Korean martial arts” and represents the most comprehensive system of traditional Korean martial arts in the world today. To learn more about Kuk Sool Won, read up on the history and our curriculum.
