A message from our founder Master Bruce Wood

As we begin to take the most tentative steps towards what we all hope will be a return to some sort of “normality”, I thought it was time the hard work, fortitude and inventiveness of our team of instructors was acknowledged

Instructor Update

It is my unfortunate duty to announce the departure of two of our instructors - Mr Danny Collins and Mr Lee Walker, both of whom have decided not to renew their membership of the UK Sooyang Do Association, and that, as a consequence, neither are licenced, insured or permitted to teach Sooyang Do, to represent Sooyang Do, or to use the Sooyang Do name or logo in any way whatsoever.  Both Mr Collins and Mr Walker will continue to enjoy my respect, as well as my gratitude, for their contribution to Sooyang Do and I wish them the best of success in their future endeavours.

A New Year mesage from Master Wood

Exciting developments ahead in 2016.................


The growth and development of Sooyang Do during the past year means that 2015 will be a hard act to follow, but further exciting developments and the continued enthusiasm of our team of instructors and volunteers is such that, not only do we aim to improve on last year, but that we are already, even this early in 2016, working on projects which will take our unique martial art to a new level, with an announcement to be made in the near future. 

On a more technical level, the continuing advances in various areas of sports science and medical knowledge of the pros and cons of contact sports, as well as the increasing need to ensure that we, as a society, embrace mutual respect, reinforces our belief that the prioritisation of health and fitness for life and the time honoured principles reflected in our tenets, on which Sooyang Do was founded, will continue to attract those wishing to embrace martial arts training as something more than a need to simply indulge in prize - fighting. 

I would like to wish everyone involved in Sooyang Do the very best for 2016 and look forward to witnessing the continued progression of all students who filled their instructors and myself with such pride at the recent belt examinations.
