The World Kuk Sool Association is celebrating its 60th Anniversary of founding this year and the annual Scottish tournament took place in Motherwell at the end of May.
Grading time is almost upon us again and we look forward to seeing all of our students show their knowledge and demonstrate their fitness. Kuk Sool Won Glasgow is always pleased to welcome new students. We enjoy seeing people grow from complete beginners to white belts and start to pick up the foundation forms and techniques. One of our newer additions to the school, Nabeel, has done just that.
Adult Classes will be cancelled from Thursday 23rd November to Sunday 26th November as we have the UK Tournament in Liverpool.
Kids class will be running as normal.
Next week we will be attending the 2017 WKSA UK Tournament. The event sees students and Masters from across the world come together for tournament as well as Black Belt national testing, instructors seminar, and a Master’s Exhibition to cap off the weekend.
Please note classes will be cancelled from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th November due to the event.
For anyone who is attending, read on to ensure you arrive fully prepared.
We are happy to announce that we now offer a kids class. Class will be suitable for ages 5 and over and is held on Saturdays at 11am to 12noon.
Whether you are a white belt or testing for your black belt, attitude is everything.
One of the great things about Kuk Sool Won is the challenge that it brings. Our martial art involves fitness and flexibility, strength and power, but it also challenges the brain. We practice the correct etiquette. We learn techniques and forms, how to use weapons and as we move through the ranks, we learn Korean.
KSW Glasgow is fast approaching the 4th Anniversary of opening. One of the best things that comes with this milestone is seeing students, who came to us as beginners, become black belts. At the 2017 Scottish tournament we had our first student who started their Martial Arts training with us achieve the rank of Jo Kyo Nim (1st Degree Black Belt). She also happens to be an English teacher so we asked her to write about her experience in Kuk Sool Won over the last 3 and a half years. Here is JKN Fiona’s story.
We have come to the end of our May Masters Seminar and Scottish Tournament. It has been another great start to the summer of Kuk Sool Won™
