    Kansas: Kuk Sool Won?

    http://www.lawrenceks.net/index.cfm?

    There is this Kuk Sool Won dojo in my town that advertizes everywhere. It looks like the bastard lovechild of Kung Fu and TKD. Does anyone know anything about Kuk Sool Won? I am tempeted to go there and make a jackass of myself. Bullshido?

    Unfortunately the search function isn't friendly with three letter words but here's an article on KSW.

    Hey thanks. I tried the search function, but like you said the spelling got me nothing.

    Dear Dontwalk,

    I must at least tell you my bias up front. I spent 7 years in kuk sool. I was almost a 2nd degree when I left. I'll be blunt: I think Kuksool is a McDojo par excellence. Dead training methods, certification is valued above skill, they don't promote sparring, the weapons are sucky in that they do not live spar, black belt ranks are expensive (1st degree promotion fee is $350.00).

    The grandmaster is sucked up to. He demonstrates the same schlocky techniques every year--two "masters" grab his wrists, he makes little hand circle which results in the two "masters" then flipping themselves thru the air and onto the mat.

    There are too many versions of so-called kuk sool history. The founders of kuk sool studied hapkido, then lied about it. Greed permeates the organization as a whole in my opinion.

    Do not waste your time! Nor your money. Your time & $$ would be better spent finding a school that uses active resistance, effective and realistic methods and less emphasis on "tradition and ettiquette" whatever those things are.

    If you want to see some of my rants about kuk sool, PM me and I'll send you some links.
    I rant well.

    I'd like to see those rants. I have been studying Kuk Sool for about 9 months.

    The KSW here is the only school that has been open consistently.

    Unfortunately, it seems that I cannot PM :icon_cry:

    There are a few good threads on KSW in the Korean Martial Arts style forum.

    I actually think Kuk Sool Won is kind of cool from the perspective of performance martial arts. Flashy uniforms, all kinds of flying kicks, you get to play with all sorts of exotic weaponry.... not quite as cool as wushu, but still pretty good.
