Members of the King's Lynn Kuk Sool Won team

Members of Kuk Sool Won of King’s Lynn faced a two-and-a-half hour grading session.

Fitness was high on the list for the instructors taking the grading for the 20 students with lots of kicking and falling and a mixture of traditional forms and self-defence techniques. All were challenged to break boards with a side kick and did well.

Kuk Sool Won is a Korean martial art and includes, but is not restricted to, kicking techniques, hand striking, break-falls and acrobatic skills, empty handed forms and weapon forms, which include staff, sword, spear and jointed staff and an array of self-defence techniques, which include joint locks and throws.
