Martial Arts Training Has The Power To Change Your Life

  • Fit
  • Lean
  • Fearless
  • Confident

“I am 44 years old and started Kuk Sool about 4-5 weeks ago. I run 4-5 times a week and suffer the typical leg soreness that comes with running. I started Kuk Sool about 4 weeks ago and I noticed from the first day how much better my body felt after class. The warm up stretches combined with the martial arts movements leaves me feeling very relaxed. The complex movements that you learn over time are also beneficial for your mental health. Your brain gets a workout just like your body. The environment is not competitive at all and the higher ranking students are more than willing to help me out and give me direction when needed. I recommend Kuk Sool and specifically Menlo Park Kuk Sool to anyone who wants to learn a martial art that seems to incorporate a broad range of movements and techniques.”

The Tremendous Health Benefits of the Martial Arts

While often over-looked as a great aerobic and strength-training workout, many thousands of adults have already discovered that martial arts training provides a fun and exciting way to burn calories and improve muscle strength.

And, recent studies have proven martial arts training to be an incredibly effective workout. In one recent study, health researchers from the New York Institute of Technology discovered that martial arts practitioners are much more fit than the average person.

Their findings showed:

  • Martial arts practitioners in the study had an average of 12% less body fat, which shows that martial arts classes are a great way to burn fat and lose weight.
  • The martial artists in the study had more leg strength, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, and balance – proof that martial arts training provides excellent overall fitness benefits.
  • The martial artists in the study could do nearly twice as many sit-ups as non-martial artists, revealing the fact that martial arts is a great workout for your abs! (Source:

Just think about it – some of the fittest movie, television, and music industry stars regularly practice martial arts. Stars like Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon, Demi Moore, Joe Rogan, and Jennifer Lopez, just to name a few. And rumor has it, martial arts training has become one of the most popular ways for Hollywood stars to stay in shape these days.

Also, many professional athletes have turned to the martial arts to improve their sports performance. For example, top athletes such as American baseball great Barry Bonds, Japanese baseball legend Sadaharu Oh, ice skating champion Elvis Stojko, and the entire Cleveland Browns football team, who integrate martial arts into their training camps.

We’ll get you in shape fast, and we have programs to fit beginners and fitness buffs alike. Try it and see why martial arts has become the hottest Hollywood workout!

Relieving Stress Is Easy When You Have A Target To Hit

After a long hard day at work, there’s nothing better than getting to beat-up on our targets and pads, and sweat out all that stress during an hour-long martial arts class. It’s like getting a “mini-vacation” several times each week. Once you put on that uniform and step out on the training floor, all your troubles will just seem to vanish.

When you join our school, for several times a week you won’t have a care in the world. All that you’ll have to think about is kicking, punching, blocking, and sweating – and you’ll be having the time of your life all the while.

As one student put it, “My martial arts class is like my own ‘private island’ where I can get away from all my concerns with work and home. For two hours each week, I get to spend time doing something that is just for me. And the benefits I’ve received from having that time to myself each week have just been tremendous.”

“Kuk Sool Won values respectful treatment of others. Every action has a proper and respectful way of being done. This is emphasized in every class, with a firm, but not judgmental, manner. KSW also requires mental discipline as well as physical expertise. This is an excellent preparation for any life activity.”

Martial Arts Help to Reduce Work-Related Injuries

For white-collar workers, most injuries in this area are repetitive in nature, especially in the arms, wrists, and hands. “The best way to prevent these types of injuries is to maintain flexibility in the tendons, joints, and muscles,” states B.K. Frantzis, founder of Energy Arts in Fairfax, Calif. These include the shoulders, upper arms, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands, and fingers. “If these stiffen, repetitive motion injuries can result,” he continues. Martial Arts “contain specific subtle mechanics that help maintain flexibility in the tendons and joints.”

Another common problem in the white collar area relates to posture. “Most people have poor postures when they work,” explains Frantzis. “For example, when sitting at desks, they hunch their shoulders forward and upwards toward the neck.” This can lead to at least three problems. One is spinal problems that need attention from chiropractors. Second is a gradual decrease of blood to the brain, as the upper back and shoulder muscles continue to tighten and restrict the blood flow over the months and years. “Over time, this condition can lead to diminished mental faculties, which can lead to lowered productivity, as well as accidents resulting from reduced concentration,” cautions Frantzis. Third, and an even more serious problem, the reduced blood flow can make people more prone to heart attacks and strokes.

Blue-collar workers can suffer from a number of injuries that Martial Arts can reduce or even prevent. Workers can get injured when lifting or twisting because of problems with physical coordination and flexibility. “For example, if your balance is not good, you can over-stretch,” states Frantzis. Martial Arts teach techniques to transfer energy and weight throughout the body. For example, when lifting, the techniques teach how to shift energy and weight from the arms to the legs.

Workers can also suffer injuries from overwork, causing the body to “fatigue out.” Martial Arts teach muscle relaxation techniques to prevent fatigue and strain.

“Many blue-collar workers also suffer from joint problems,” continues Frantzis. Martial Arts “promote joint rotation, allowing joints to remain loose and flexible.” The techniques also teach participants how to slighfly shift weights in certain areas of the body, preventing specific joints from wearing out.
