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.

Sooyang Do students packing all the punches at Westdyke Leisure Centre

A challenging weekend is ahead for 350 Sooyang Do martial art students.........

This weekend promises to be a challenging one for hundreds of martial arts students of all ages, as the United Kingdom Sooyang Do Association (UKSA) conduct their latest belt examination events, which will see members demonstrate many aspects, and various levels, of this unique system of martial arts training, in an effort to earn promotion to their next level.

Saturday 30th May will begin with 33 current Sooyang Do black belt students, as they strive for further promotion, whilst 17 senior students will later seek to earn the right to be awarded that coveted Black Belt for the first time.

Both examinations will provide a stern test of the individual technical ability, power and endurance of each student, which will hopefully result in many of the students receiving their awards during a subsequent belt presentation ceremony.

Sunday 31st May will provide the opportunity for approximately 300 less advanced students to take the next step in their own personal "journey" towards their goal of black belt status, as they demonstrate their ability, in accordance with their own current rank and within a clearly defined and structured syllabus.

This year has witnessed rapid growth within all UKSA clubs, providing opportunities for increasing numbers to experience the very real benefits of our unique methods and philosophy, within a positive and disciplined enviroment.
