Gongkwon Yusul 공권유술
For Ages 8 & up
- GongKwon means "empty fist", Yusul translates as "gentle art".
- The empty fist stands for all techniques like punches, kicks etc. The gentle art designates throws, locks, or grappling techniques which aim to redirect the opponent's force against him. This entails that GongKwon Yusul incorporates all aspects of unarmed fighting, distance and close combat, as well as grappling. One of the key features of this system is the dynamic combination of various techniques.
- GongKwon Yusul is an all encompassing martial art dedicated to developing practical fighting and self defense skills. It encompasses skills at all ranges, including punching, kicking, elbows, knees, throwing, take downs, ground striking and grappling, all of which are intended to be applied in practical free-flowing situations.
- The essence of GongKwon Yusul is it's ability to seamlessly integrate striking techniques such as punches, kicks, and knees to close the distance into grappling range. Once within grappling range, a variety of take down techniques can be employed including throws and sweeps. The final part of the equation is the ground grappling game. Once the opponent has been taken to the ground, the objective is to submit them as quickly as possible using a large range of ground fighting techniques.
- Gongkwon Yusul combines the effective, practical self defense techniques often seen in sport MMA, while maintaining traditional philosophies such as respect of others, personal development and combative (non-sport) techniques.
- Gongkwon Yusul blends elements of Hapkido, Judo, Ju jit su, and Kickboxing into a new refined art.
