    This is my first post, Let me start by saying that I love KSW, I trained a lot in the 89's under KJW Bob Zefo in Galesburg Il. I officially quit training in 1988, for several reasons but I miss it badly, I am horribly out of shape & have a lot of questions. I loved the hyungs of KSW most of all. Just putting this out there.

    Welcome, I've been out of KSW for long time as well. Are you near a school ? This forum is not very friendly towards our style, but put out questions and we can see what comes back !

    thanks to all

    I am near a school in Pekin, like 3 blocks from my house but will need to get feedback for some questions 1st, maybe you guys/ gals can help. first do you ever lose your rank in Kuk Sool Won? I got a 1st degree Black belt in 1988 & will have a ton of work to do to get back in shape, I'm mainly interested in hyungs but do realize If I join a school I'd need to re-train on techniques as well.

    AFAIK you never lose your rank in Kuk Sool Won (WKSA) unless your departure was a dispute of some sort that goes against WKSA policies. It's not that you lose it more that it's no longer recognized. I would assume that you just stopped training for some personnel reason, in that case your rank is still valid.

    Pekin School is operated by a 3rd dahn Micheal Yates, he's a good guy you'll have a blast with him. Solid school very professional.

    I've got some good info about a school near me here in Pekin Il. I have been curious about Kuk sa nim lately, I know he specializes in pressure point techniques but I have rarely if ever seen him perform his own beautiful forms. also I'm not sure if this is considered rude to ask but his wife also seems very elusive or perhaps she just wants to live a private life.

    It will be on this forum. If she wants to remain private, then that is her right and you should respect that.

    Why would you want to know about someone's wife? :confused:
