This month we have great news to report. Our Master Instructor Martin Ducker has achieved the notable level of 6th degree Black Belt. One of only six people to have reached this grade in the UK as far as Kuk Sool Won is concerned.
To gain this achievement Martin had to complete many rigorous tests, with several exams lasting over three / four hours long and had to perform privately in front of the organizations Grandmaster In Hyuk Suh.
To receive his promotion Martin travelled along with his wife Alison and two children Rachel and Jason, to Houston, Texas. This also coincided with a special event to commemorate the 50thAnniversary of the World Kuk Sool Association.
Other events at the Dojang during November included the making of a short documentary film about the history of our club.
The film is a second year project for a group of University students from Farnham in Surrey.
This group of young people heard about Kuk Sool via a friend and thought that the Halesworth Club / Dojang would make an interesting feature.
The final cut should be finished early next year.
We have also just had another regional visit from our founder and Grandmaster In Hyuk suh, accompanied by his two sons. A seminar was held at Worlingham Middle School for all Kuk Sool practitioners in the Waveney region, which again proved to be a great success.
Finally, the UK Championships were held in Birmingham on the 29th November.
Watch this space for the results and some new black belt promotions.
