Thanks, though I never claim to be a good fighter by any means. But, if you spar every lesson then you're bound to pick up some knowledge!
The only correction here is that ZSK is much more open than WSK. The history is all there on their website, unlike WSK, which is less specific. You have to join to get the offically history, which I've never really tried to verify.
Also, WSK doesn't compete in the ring anymore. Though I have no idea why not.

Some time ago, a work colleague (and Arsehole) revealed he did WSK. It was taught at Swiss Cottage in North London. Subsequently I learned (can't remember how) that the Grandmaster had been 3rd Dan TKD and after a dispute, he left to form his own style hence WSK.
His wife, Tina, I think was noted as a Breaker and in various flyers was photographed breaking Ice Blocks and was featured in various UK TV programmes demonstrating the same.
FWIW, Sensei Mark Fitz-Gerald, 5th Dan Ju Jitsu was 1st Dan WSK before switching to Jikishin Ju Jitsu (following his having seen a demo).
Hope this adds something and regrets if it doesn't.

My description is normally kickboxing with traditional trimmings, so I'm guessing that largely goes for WSK too.

Glen originally got his black belt in WSK, then moved over to ZSK with his teacher during the split. Not entirely representative of ZSK or WSK, as he's a big powerful guy with lots of experience, but gives you some idea.
I'll finish with a description that other WSKer I mentioned gave about two years ago on Cyberkwoon:
