PKJN David started his Kuk Sool Won training in January 1999 originally at his home town of Dereham, Norfolk and was promoted to first degree black belt in 2003.
In 2007 job opportunities took him to King's Lynn and he started training under 5th Degree Master Darren Brown, it was there that his passion for teaching began to flourish and in 2014, exactly 15 years after first walking into a Kuk Sool Won class, he opened up the Peterborough school.
2014 was an incredible year for David as he was also promoted to the rank of 4th degree black belt at the Kuk Sool Won UK Championships, held in Liverpool.
As well as regular practice, SBN David has also competed in many tournaments, not just across the UK but in Holland, Spain and the USA regularly finishing in the top 4 of every division he has entered.
In 2008 SBN David was fortunate to be able to visit, train and test at the Headquarters in Houston, Texas under 9th degree black belt SSKJN Sung Jin Suh.
PKJN David is DBS (CRB) checked and clear, child protection and first aid trained.
JKN Connor began his journey in 2014 in Claygate where he studied for a number of years before moving to Peterborough after graduating from University. Here, he has since studied under PKJN David and has continued to learn and assist with classes.
In his time studying Kuk Sool Won, Connor has regularly competed in the UK and European Championships, from which he consistently places in the top 3 of the divisions he enters. In 2018 he placed as Grand Champion in his first Black Belt competition, the award given to those who place the highest amongst all the divisions they have entered. He also regularly attends seminars and workshops to further himself and better understand Kuk Sool Won.
What's your favorite aspect of Kuk Sool Won?
"I really enjoy practicing and bettering my Hyung, as its something that I have always seemed to be good at. I would say that my favorite is definitely weapons forms. Kuk Sool Won is a traditional martial art and you really get a sense for that when practicing with a weapon."
