Supplimenting boxing with teh kuk sool is like supplimenting powerlifting with lawn bowls.
BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

If the guy can read everything on here, have people flat out tell him it's a made up pile of fucking junk with absolutely no practical value, and then still say "well, this school doesn't seem that bad", then there's no convincing him IMO, he's already made up his mind.
Go do Suk Tool mate, good luck to you (I think you already do it tbh, and are just trying to get some validation).

Pink fans and no sparring are the main things. It suffers all the other symptoms of any mcdojo, least from what I read.
i know he doesn't do it anymore, but yeah, it seems it wasn't a bad foundation for him. and the school i went to didn't seem mcdojoish.

Fine, go and do kuk sool but don't say we didn't warn you. Just remember this:
The path of the Pink Fan can only end in misery.

cool, i've done a little more research and found a kempo school. i'll check this school out before i start with ksw. it seems iffy from what i've read about mcdojos, but the hours are good and if they spar enough then we'll see. thanks for trying to save me though.

Kempo? Haven't you learnt anything.

hahaha, i swear i have...but my hours don't work with any other school, not to mention i live in an area that doesn't have too many...but it's a step up isn't it? as long as there's no mcdojoing going on.

hey guys..not sure if this has been covered earlier but a friend of mine tried to get me into KSW last year. He and his wife had both just their 3rd degree bb (or maybe 2nd) and it had apparently cost them a slightly worrying £1,500 ($3,000). This included books they had to buy and prob some other equipment. Thought the price was a bit too steep. I love training but how much should you pay for some guy to sit there and assess how good you are at forms and breaking?
Can anyone else verify these prices? My information is obviously second hand

Sounds a bit pricey for a black belt! Kuk Sool seems to be very money orientated but so are most martial arts, just the way of the world.
