Welcome to Kuk Sool Wonof Oxshott and Great Bookham.

Kuk Sool Won™ is the systematic study of all traditional martial arts and seeks to integrate and explore all aspects of the traditional Korean martial arts. As a martial arts system it can help to improve fitness, confidence and concentration, relieve stress, and teach self-defence, all of which are so important today.

SBN James opened the first Kuk Sool Won™ school in Surrey in Oxshott in the summer of 2007 and now also leads classes in Great Bookham and Claygate, which is an official secondary location of the Oxshott school.
