- Training in Kuk Sool Won™ is much like going to martial art university. We are a Black Belt School and encourage all to take the journey to Black Belt. This takes between 3-5 years depending on age, attendance, personal effort, and ability.
- Kuk Sool Won™ requires participation in at least one tournament prior to awarding a Black Belt. We highly recommend going to tournament as early as possible on your journey. It’s a weekend of travel and an amazing experience where participants build relationships with classmates from all over the country and the world! Our tournaments are a closed format – meaning all participants are members of Kuk Sool Won™ and have been trained with the same philosophy of a family atmosphere. Tournament is offered once per year on the west coast.
- Once per year the Super Seminar Team comes into town and offers training directly from HQ Masters. This 3 hour Seminar is always a big hit! Often times the seminar offers a newer student their first opportunity to work with weapons in a safe and controlled atmosphere.
- As your journey progresses, you’ll need gear. Sparring gear, weapons, bags to hold your gear. We have packages for these items and will offer them as you need them.
- Please arrive for class 10 minutes early
- Students should always arrive on time and ready for practice with a complete, tidy, un-torn uniform (do-bok); pants, jacket, belt and black T-shirt.
- Please remove your shoes before entering the practice area. If you want to wear indoor-only shoes during practice, they must be approved in advance.
- Treat your uniform with respect; after class, fold it correctly.
- Do not wear jewelry during class. Jewelry can cause injury to you or your classmates.
Students are responsible for all your own personal belongings.
- Please do not eat candy or chew gum in the studio. Water and sports drinks are allowed in the lobby only.
- Refrain from vulgar language in or around the studio. You are a representative of our school, and are expected to uphold the same values you practice in class outside of class as well.
- Always strive to keep a strong and positive mental attitude. Be humble and respectful. Push yourself, but be safe.
- Discuss any problems or concerns with your instructor as soon as appropriate.
Students should address all instructors and students by their correct title, or “Sir” or “Ma’am”.
