Kuk Sool Won Boston have held their final grading of the year.

Adults spent two hours repeating all forms and joint locks.

The idea was to wear them out out physically before putting mental pressure on them to remember all their techniques.

The senior children’s class had the same style of grading, but included conditioning drills.

The junior children’s class spent an hour going through all they had been taught, including breakfalls.
