    ouch. crazy how they willing smack themselves into the floor like that. and then get back up and yell. lots o martial artists dont like this stuff, but i think it is cool as long as they dont present it as a fighting system

    There's a lot more to Kuk Sool than what you saw there. It's not a performance art like modern wushu. Kuk Sool is basically Hapkido with a few extras. Now if you're not into TMA's at all or think they're all worthless then it may not make a difference. I just thought I'd point out there's more to Kuk Sool than what you're seeing.

    Are acrobatics part of Kuk Sool Won's curriculum? For example, do you have to know how to do a cartwheel to get X belt? The breakfalls I can understand, but some people aren't able to do those flips and stuff. I wish I knew how to do those things, very flashy.

    Acrobatics are part of the curriculum, as in they're taught. However, they're not required for promotion. I can do cartwheels and 1 hand cartwheels just fine, but I can't do front flips and back handsprings. I still promoted though because it wasn't part of the tests.

    Well, this people can jump.

    I guess that the swords displayed weren´t katanas, but a korean type of sword. But why did they sheat them samurai-style?
