Phil Brooks JKN
I am Phil Brooks JKN (first-degree black belt), Chief Instructor and school owner of Kuk Sool Won Ikast. I started training in 2008 in Bromley Kent with (now) 5th-degree master Matthew Boniwell PKJN (KSW Cork) When Mathew moved to Ireland I joined Kuk Sool Won of Sevenoaks and started training with 4th degree Andy Lapham SBN and continue to train under the instruction of SBN Andy.
I have competed in UK and European Championship tournaments winning over 30 medals in forms, techniques, sparring, and weapons. I continue to compete as well as assist in judging, testing, and participating in the masters' demonstrations at tournaments.
I moved to Denmark from the UK in July 2017. I opened the school, after agreement and authorization from GrandMaster Kuk Sa Nim. It was a great opportunity to introduce Kuk Sool Won to Denmark, a new territory for WKSA as there was no footing in Denmark until the Ikast school opened in October 2018.
I am a dedicated martial artist and am thrilled that I am able to bring this family martial art to Ikast and Denmark. The club certainly made history and now has a strong team of over 75 registered students - and continues to grow
ALWAYS THE STUDENT
I have been taught to never stop learning, growing, improving, and developing. BUT MOST OF ALLl, Stay Humble, be polite, be respectful, and listen to those that share positive advice.
