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.

May belt examinations 2015

A message from Master Bruce Wood........



As the founder and Master Instructor of Sooyang Do Martial Art. I have seldom, if ever, been more proud of our organisation than during this past weekend. Not only was I priviledged to be part of a weekend which saw 350 Sooyang Do students provide a wonderful technical demonstration of Sooyang Do, in front of a total of 1000 spectators, but I also had the opportunity to witness the unique positive spirit of an organisation which staged three separate events, with the help of around forty Examiners, Chief Instructors, Trainee Instructors, Junior Leaders and students, all of whom gave up their valuable time to ensure the success of our latest belt examinations.

I would like to congratulate all of the students, from those who were experiencing their first martial arts belt examination, to those who achieved their goal of black belt status (Bo Dan,Il Dan and beyond) in equal measure and to thank the families to those involved, particularly the parents of the younger students, who support us and put their faith in us to ensure we can help in the development of their children.

I look forward to the many exciting Sooyang Do events and challenges throughout the second half of the year, particularly following the inspirational events of the past few days.

Master Bruce Wood - Founder
