Ages 4-6, The Kubs program is a fun way for kids to develop coordination and focus while learning the basics of the Kuk Sool system. Martial arts training not only promotes basic motor skills and discipline, but also helps kids develop social skills that will help build self-confidence


Ages 7-9. Kids gain focus, confidence, and respect in a fun and safe setting. This program focuses on the importance of respect and discipline, values that all children need to acquire.
