No One Sits on the Bench at Kuk Sool Won of the River Valley

Martial arts is not a team sport, the only person that you are competing with is yourself. Students come to us from all ages. Some are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for self-defense, physical fitness, and others for fun. Each person is treated as an equal and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. At Kuk Sool Won of the River Valley, our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate you to be the best that you can be.

At Kuk Sool Won of the River Valley, you and your family will have the opportunity to learn a unique system of self-defense, increase your level of physical fitness, and enjoy an activity that promotes longevity, discipline, and personal development.
