The Founder of Kuk Sool Won - Grand Master In Hyuk Suh
Kuk Sool Won was founded by grandmaster In Hyuk Suh. His martial arts career started with his grandfather Myung Duk Suh, one of the last chief instructors to the Korean Royal Court Army. When the Japanese invaded Korea in 1910, instructors of Korea’s Royal Court Army were forced into hiding. Myung Duk Suh returned to his home in the Taegu area and secretly taught only the immediate members of his family. In Hyuk Suh was very young when his grandfather was killed during the Korean war but Myung Duk Suh had arranged for the continued training of his grandson in the three basic areas of Korean martial arts: Sado Mu Sool (tribal martial arts), Bul Kyo Mu Sool (Buddhist martial arts), and Koong Joong Mu Sool (royal court martial arts).
In the late 1950s In Hyuk Suh organized and systematized Korea’s scattered martial arts techniques into a single system. In 1958 Korean Kuk Sool Won was officially founded and In Hyuk Suh revealed the inheritance from his grandfather of five rare books of Korean martial arts techniques. In 1974 In Hyuk Suh came to the United States and in 1975 he opened the world headquarters in San Francisco. In 1991 the world headquarters was relocated to Houston, Texas in order to better serve the rapidly proliferating base of schools opening in the United States and Canada.
