THE owner of a martial arts school in the resort has been made UK director for Kuk Sool Hapkido for the National Korean Martial Arts Association (NKMAA).

John Ward holds 5th degree (Master level) certification in Kuk Sool Hapkido, 4th dahn in Kuk Sool and is in the final stages of testing for his 2nd dahn in the little known extreme martial art of Kong Shin Bup.

The NKMAA is a worldwide organisation of Korean Martial Arts schools and certifies most Korean arts.

John said: “There have been a number of new schools opening in the UK recently.

“There was clearly a need for someone to give them some direction and to assist with the growth of the Korean Martial Arts and the organisation in the UK.”
