Which class should I come to for my first lesson?
What should I wear?
For your first class just wear loose trousers or shorts and a t-shirt, such as what you would wear to the gym. We provide you with a free uniform if you sign up for a monthly plan so avoid buying anything specifically for your first class.
What is the cost?
Head over to the Pricing page for costs.
Are there grading fees?
There is a fee for grading. Although most people choose to keep testing and progressing, this isn’t mandatory and you won’t be forced to grade in order to continue coming to classes.
Do I need to buy any extra equipment or uniforms?
You are provided with a uniform free of charge if you are a pay monthly member. Kuk Sool Won™ does involve training with some weapons and equipment which you may wish to purchase for yourself eventually, but we have equipment to borrow so it isn’t a requirement for class. For sparring you should have your own mouth guard, which can be purchased at any sports shop.
Do I have to practice sparring?
We do not force anyone to practice sparring, it is however a great way to learn how to effectively use what you learn in class and can be practiced in a very safe and light-contact manner.
How do I get my next rank?
You must have good, consistent class attendance and you must know the material of that rank to the Instructor’s satisfaction.
Can I keep my rank from a different Martial Art?
Unfortunately no. The Kuk Sool Won™ syllabus is different from any other martial art and therefore a belt in other styles does not equate to any Kuk Sool Won™ belt.
I did Kuk Sool Won™ a long time ago, can I keep the rank I have?
Once you have earned a rank in Kuk Sool Won™, the rank is never withdrawn. Ideally bring your Kuk Sool Won ID Card along to class which shows your current rank and we will review with you all the material that is required for that rank. Once you have caught up to where you left off, you will once again continue to progress toward the next rank.
I practiced Kuk Sool Won™ at a different school and would like to come to your class.
Please get in touch with your old instructor if you have moved to Glasgow and would like to train with us. They will inform you of the process to transfer schools. If you cannot speak to your instructor please get in touch with us first before coming along to class.
If you are just visiting for a class please speak to your instructor first to ensure they know and are okay with you visiting us.
