Megan and Greg are some of the best instructors you can ever find. They have great attention to detail. They also know how to work with each person's individual learning style. You will not be disappointed when you join the Kuk Sool family.

Great for young and old. My son has learned discipline and confidence. The physical fitness has eliminated my chronic back pain, and we have both learned priceless self defense techniques. These 2 blackbelts are engaging fantastic teachers.

What a great husband and wife team the owners of KSW Bloomington/Normal make! Both are full of life, energetic, compassionate, love working with children, and most of all, have a desire to share their many years knowledge of the martial arts. Joining the martial arts will be one of the best decisions you will make in your life, it's not just kicking and punching, it's a community that's an extension of your family.

Our family has had a wonderful experience at KSW of Bloomington/Normal. The instructors are passionate, experienced, and so welcoming. Our three year old son has been participating in the tiny tigers class and absolutely loves it. My son has so much fun and learns a lot as well! If your son/daughter has an interest in martial arts, we would highly recommend Kuk Sool Won of Bloomington/Normal!

My son has been going here for the last six months and not only is it a fantastic martial arts school but the best place for character development as well! Don't look anywhere else.

Latoya Christine

Our son has autism and it takes him a while to focus and he doesn't always understand what's being asked of him. It was very hard to watch what I thought was him struggling, but in fact he was learning and they could see that!! Greg and Megan are completely phenomenal with him and all the kiddos. They love the kiddos so much and are so supportive to all the families.

Becky Ratley

My son has been in Kuk Sool for just a few weeks and he’s loved learning here! Megan and Greg are wonderful instructors and they offer a very hospitable atmosphere. Seeing my son gain more self esteem and confidence week after week is priceless. I would highly suggest Kuk Sool Won of Normal!

Back to School with Martial Arts Tip 2

Hey, Parents! How are your kids doing at school? Are they coping well? Last week, we discussed how martial arts can help improve your kid’s self-confidence. And if that’s not enough to convince you in enrolling them with us, we’re dropping another bomb this week!

MARTIAL ARTS CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR KID’S SOCIAL SKILLS.

There are tons of reasons why a child may have poor social skills. It could be because of a problem in the family, childhood trauma, or it could be that they are simply shy.

Inside the martial arts studio, your child can help improve their social skills.

We may think that some kids are born to be natural introverts or extroverts. But it could also be a lack of opportunities for them to interact with their peers.

Being hesitant to interact and socialize with others is common amongst children. Especially if they are not feeling comfortable in large gatherings or social meetings.

More often than not, a child who is socially awkward is more likely targeted by bullies.

This is because the child won’t have friends to back him or her up when things go awry. The child will also stand out as an outcast and bullies will take advantage of that.

Allow your children to attend martial arts classes. This will help them get more opportunities to interact with kids outside of school. They’ll meet peers who are also enrolled in martial arts from a variety of backgrounds.

Your child will meet a wider range of children to socialize and learn martial arts with.

Your child will definitely have fun training with their peers. And at the same time learning super important life skills in a martial arts class. The most exciting part is that, they’ll be part of a team.

Now, what other ways can help your child improve his or her social skills? Let us know below! Talk to you again next week!
