I want to congratulate you and thank you for choosing Kuk Sool Won as your martial art and myself as your instructor…your choice was a worthy one! As a martial arts instructor, I see each of my students not only as a student but also as a future instructor, and my method of instruction demonstrates that. Our Do-Jang (school) motto is: “Building a better community one Martial Artist at a time, by Building Self-Esteem, Self-Respect, and Self-Confidence through effective Self-Defense!” I believe we can achieve this together. I began studying martial arts at age 7; in 1988, I entered the doors of Kuk Sool Won of Galesburg, Illinois, and have been with Kuk Sool ever since. This is the most complete art I have ever encountered; it covers all aspects of self-defense as well as the development of body, mind, and spirit. I have a great appreciation for Kuk Sool and all the people I have met through this art, from students to classmates to instructors to Masters. This in itself is priceless. I thank you for your support and trust in our program. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or comments. My goal is to help you achieve your goals.
Your Master Instructor,
Joo Im Kwahn Jahng Nim (JIKJN)
