We are a traditional Korean martial arts school based at Bassetts Pole, Sutton Coldfield. Classes are taught by Chief Instructors James and Amy, both 3rd Dahn black belts in Kuk Sool Won.
Kuk Sool Won is the systematic study of all traditional Korean fighting arts, founded by the Grandmaster, In Hyuk Suh, in 1958. It is a martial arts system which combines all aspects of Asian fighting arts into one well-organised curriculum.
At Kuk Sool Won of North Birmingham, we are a family orientated club who strive to teach in a way which is both fun and informative. Whatever your goals, whether it’s to get fit, learn self-defence or simply try something new, Kuk Sool Won caters for all.
Our Little Ninjas class is aimed at ages four to five. We dedicate the duration of these classes to developing your child's coordination, fitness and balance, all while making the class fun and enjoyable.
Our Ninjas class is aimed at ages six to eight, and teaches children the fundamentals of Kuk Sool Won. We place a large emphasis on etiquette and respect, and aim to instil these virtues in students. The Ninjas class is designed and formatted to develop their key skills, such as balance, flexibility, coordination and control. We don't just teach punching and kicking, but help develop confidence and self-defence skills essential for every-day life. We aim to keep classes light and fun, as this is the most important thing about training!
Our Juniors class is aimed at slightly older children, of ages nine to twelve. Like the Ninjas class, we continue the themes of etiquette and respect, and building confidence in our students. At this age, the skills we teach are slightly more technical, but are still delivered in a fun and engaging way!
Our Adults & Youth class is for everybody aged 13 and above, regardless of age, ability or experience. We are a family orientated club who strive to teach in a way which is both fun and informative. Whatever your goals are, whether it’s to get fit, learn self-defence or simply try something new, Kuk Sool Won caters for all. We will be able to help you achieve all of these goals and more.

"James and Amy have been teaching our son for nearly a year now. He’s tried many martial arts classes around the area, but here at Kuk Sool Won he’s learnt more than he ever picked up from anywhere else. They are fun and friendly classes and how they both engage with the kids is brilliant and encouraging. Five stars from us."
Karen Booth, Parent
"James, Amy and Oliver have been great instructors for my child who has been training for over a year now. They manage to make classes fun and enjoyable whilst encouraging learning of techniques / patterns and sparing. It has helped my child build confidence so much and also improve their listening skills most the time anyway. Would recommend the new venue works well snd it’s is great to have there own space to work in instead of a shared space"
"Excellent place for people of all ages to learn martial arts form really good teachers."
