Having read with interest the article on Master Kevin Janisse's website regarding Kong Shin Bup, it left me wondering what the main difference are between KSB and Kuk Sool? Understandably they seem to share a lot in common due to both being hapkido derived tkmas. Since we have both grand and chief masters in the art present here I thought a discussion of similarlities and differences would be interesting. I have a couple of questions of my own to get the ball rolling; 1. When teaching techniques does KSB use a numbered system e.g. Ki Bohn Soo 1, or a korean translation of the technique e.g. shoulder wheel being ukeromichigi. 2. To what extent is ground grappling covered in the curriculum? Is it similar to kuk sool, or is there a more structured curriculum similar to modern grappling arts. 3. Do practitioners involve themselves in open tournaments, be it striking, grappling or a mixture? Also is there any study of korean combat sports involved e.g. tae kyon or ssireum? I hope other members will contribute questions and hopefully we can all learn something. What I don't intend is for this to become yet another my art/GM is better than yours thread, or any of that politcal BS.
