Welcome to the Home of Martial Arts in the Morecambe Bay Area
"A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
This old eastern proverb is particularly true in the field of martial arts, and by finding this website you have taken the first step towards becoming fitter more confident, more relaxed, or in helping your child to increase their self confidence, self control, balance, teamwork and concentration.
Our school offers training in Kuk Sool and Kuk Sool Hapkido in the following four class types;-
These are special classes for 4 to 6 year olds. They will learn about teamwork, respect and sharing. Physical benefits include improved balance, fitness and concentration which will help them in their early days in education. They will also begin to learn the basics of martial arts, and be rewarded appropiately as they reach various goals. When they are ready they will move into the Junior class.
From the age of around 6, new students will join our regular Junior classes. In these classes they will work with students both older and younger, which wil help to encourage the development of social skills, respect and responsibility. In some classes students of all ranks are mixed whilst in others they are separated by rank.
From the age of around 11, students may join the youth class, which are held twice a week. Youth students train at a higher level and are given more repsonsibility and have the option to complete a Junior Leader course in which they assist with coaching younger students. As well as attending this class they may also attend either Junior or Senior classes, depending upon their age.
We also have a number of combined Junior and Youth classes during which students aged 11 to 15 train in one group.
Usually around the age of 13-15, new students join the senior classes. Sometimes this is a gradual process with them attending some junior and some senior lessons as well as the youth classes. Our oldest senior students are currently around 57 years old (as is Master John!) so it really is a "mixed bag" which makes for a great social side. Senior students often opt to learn the slightly tougher art of Kuk Sool Hapkido which has a wider variety of techniques and forms to learn.
For those seniors whose children also train with us, we offer family classes at two locations. This is an opportunity to train alongside your children and assist (and be assisted by) them with training.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
Originally known as Kuk Sool Won of Lancaster, Morecambe & Heysham, our school now boasts well over 100 students aged from just 4 years old to a number of “fifty something” adults! School owner, John Ward has been training in the Korean Martial Arts for over 20 years and has been a full-time instructor for over 12 years. His business partner, Angela Prince has been training with Master John since shortly after the schoool was opened nearly ten years ago, and is currently one of only two 2nd dahn Black Belt students (the other being her son Connor) as well as being a senior instructor and partner in the school.
John's main motivation in starting training was, like many people, to find an enjoyable way to keep fit, to learn to defend himself and his family.
Detailed elsewhere on this site are some of the many trophies and awards which John, Angela and their students have won over the years, both at home and abroad. However, despite the undoubted successes in tournaments, the school's main focus is to provide good quality, professional training which will be enjoyed by and be of great benefit to virtually anyone prepared to “give it a go”.
