    So say you had a spare 4 weeks on your hands where for some reason (say for instance knee surgery) you couldn't physically train. What would be the areas that you would spend time studying??? And does anyone have some interesting links to articles that might be an interesting read?? :)

    I'd work on hand conditioning and no I don't mean the type your thinking of!!!!

    I'd also study all the terminology and history of the art in more depth to gain a better understanding of it.

    Maybe even look at the areas of Kuk Sool that you don't spend much time on or are weak at and cover the theory on it etc.

    If I think of anything else I'll let you know mate.

    How about learning the Korean names for the pressure points. That'd keeep you busy. Here is online source of numbered diagrams, http://www.yinyanghouse.com/acupoints.html

    They use the same numbering system as the Kuk Sool book.

    i could give you a list of *educational* websites worth viewing but i don't think they would be suitable on a family forum like this :p

    hope all is well mate.

    Do one legged squats so you have one big leg and one small leg? Or you could learn to do handstand pushup or you can do normal push ups just using one leg (I don't know how bad the injury is so im guessing). Work on a six pack by dieting and stomach exercises? There quite a bit of training you can do with one leg.

    Handstand push-ups i like idea of,haven't done those for what seems like a lifetime. :) Already doing most push ups you could throw at me one legged or otherwise. Now theres a chalenge lol :D Six-pack is practically there. :) Yeah i know theres lots of training i can actually do,I meant instead of my traditional martial arts forms and kicking as opposed to general fitness sorry i wasn't specific my fault, though new ideas there too would be cool. I was just looking for ideas on the more academic and internal bits really i spose. One legged squats would be funny though to end up with a big left leg lol :D

    Well learning the numbers would be useful as well as the korean names for all the kicks and hand strikes, or learn the miridian lines that the "pressure points" are on e.g lung 3, heart 9 ect.

    Watch the KSW training DVDs, looking for detail and variation, intersperced with MA movies, and attempt to ID the Korean name for every kick and punch. Learn any forms or techniques you don't know from the textbooks, handbooks, or videos. Discuss differances notices in the training DVDs with fellow practitioners or instructors. Write a book/article on "Changes in Kuk Sool Won over the last 25 years."

    You probably wanted more fun suggestions. Get pretty examples of the appropriate gender to come over and demonstrate, and offer detail or feedback. But then, if people are coming over, talking may be more fun.

    The pressure point idea sound fun: memorize the Korean names and the English equivalent. Write a novel/short story based upon the poetic descriptions of the points, maybe set in medieval Korea. Write a humerous dictionary based upon mispronounciation of the poetic names, in English or Korean.

    I hope you are feeling better.
