JEFFREY C. RIGG
“As a martial artist, I believe in magic. Without it, we would just be kick-boxers.” I began my martial arts education as a wrestler in 1978. My next art was Okinawan Karate taught by Sensei Miyagi. I was introduced to original Korean martial arts through my fellow student Remo Williams. Along the way, I practiced creative conflict resolution using the various Gygax rule systems. In 1999 I looked for a school to begin training and found a wonderful group of instructors teaching Kuk Sool Won™ in South Austin. I know that Kuk Sool Won™ can help me deal with many situations and that the training is always with me, never left behind. I train in Kuk Sool Won™ to round out my skills as a warrior and to improve my conditioning and maintain my health. I find Kuk Sool Won™ to be comprehensive, practical, and enjoyable.
