Gongkwon Yusul (GKYS) is a collection of Martial Arts Systems from all over the world that has been formed into a single style. Technically a Mixed Martial Art, GKYS has physically all of the hallmarks of a UFC style system but differentiates itself by it’s traditional approach to teaching and emphasis of student’s spiritual growth.

GKYS predominantly comprises of a collection of techniques from the following styles:

  • Hapkido
  • Hakkoryu Jujutsu
  • Kickboxing
  • Judo

GKYS aims to provide it’s students with the broadest range of skill sets to deal with real world situations, whether it be through its powerful striking, joint locks for restraining, or ground fighting should the need arise. Its training emphasis is predominantly practical, with all classes consisting of physical fitness, traditional training and meditation, and sparring to hone skills in a safe environment.

GKYS training will improve a student’s physical fitness, self confidence, awareness of the realities of physical confrontation in the real world today, and arm them with a wide range of devastating techniques to keep themselves safe from would be attackers.
