Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Training Beginners Is Our Specialty.

We welcome beginners with open arms. That's because most people have never thrown a kick or a punch in their life before coming to us.

I know it might be a bit nerve-wracking to try something new like martial arts. Maybe you're anxious or afraid that you won't be able to do it. Maybe you're not in the best shape right now and you don't want to feel out of place.

Let me tell you none of that matters. For real. Come as you are, and our awesome instructors will train you just as you are with understanding, hands on support and a whole lot of fun every step of the way.

Boost Your Confidence & Happiness Level.

To learn and grow with your martial arts skills, you must develop your self-discipline. You have to be motivated and dedicated to the practice. Going to class and showing up on a regular basis develops your discipline.

As you progress, your confidence will soar. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside, and that strength will carry over into other parts of your life.

As a result, you?ll feel happier, empowered and have a higher quality of life? and really, isn?t that what you?ve always wanted?

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Signed my son up because he seemed mildly interested and he loves it. Within no time my daughter was begging to join. Couldn't imagine a better place with better instructors. PSBN Mike and the black belts are phenomenal with all the students. It truly feels like you're a family here. So glad to have this wonderful academy here in Pekin. They have great fitness classes too!

Kuk Sool Won of Pekin has been a wonderful program for our 6yr old daughter (4 when she started). She has gained self confidence, is learning the value of hard word/dedication, and is learning mental self discipline from PSBN Michael Yates, and all the instructors! Worth every penny, and every minute of time invested... Kuk Sool Won really is a very large extended family!

Kuk Sool Won of Pekin is an upstanding and supportive place to learn. First time you walk in the door you are part of their family. I'm an adult who started at a late age, very glad I did. From first meeting with owner/instructor PSBN Mike Yates I felt as person who they cared about. Kuk Sool Won of Pekin is more than Martial arts. They give back to the community as well as families in need. The program they offer is excellent and helps Kids/Adults learn not just to defend themselves, but also to respect others. I'm wouldn't go anywhere else thanks for all the great times!
