What is martial arts etiquette?
Etiquette, is the first and most important principle taught in Kuk Sool Won™. Following the rules of etiquette develops self-control which is an essential prerequisite to advanced martial arts training. Proper etiquette demonstrates respect for the art, for one’s instructors and for one’s fellow students. In fact, etiquette is the first section of the Kuk Sool Won™ Progress Chart and is the single most important requirement to be eligible for further training in Kuk Sool.
