    But to get back to your point I think there are quite a few leaders (Rogue Masters if you must) promoting the art of Kuk Sool. Not to many are calling it that though.

    Hanminjok Hapkido, Mu Sool Won, Kong Shin Bup, Martial Science, Kuk Sool Kwan, and the more generic term Hapkido that some use, quickly come to mind.

    And people in the various groups mentioned and more are starting to get together to train and share. So lots of people are still practicing the art.

    Hi Mike:

    I thought I would suggest something that a number of KS people need to start warming-up to. That is, that the nature of the KMA is what you are carrying inside of you each and every day. If YOU are training, then KMA is still in training. If YOU are growing your knowledge base, then KMA is broadening. If you are allowing your skillset to diminish than KMA is shrinking. The reason I mention this is because I, personally, see WAY too much emphasis on the growth or decline of KMA based on how the organizations and networks are doing. Often, I go long periods without hearing how people are taking personal responsibility for the integrity of their art by making a personal commitment to its preservation. Not to put you on the spot, but may I ask what YOU have done today to assure the next generation that there will be a KMA for them to follow? Thoughts?

    Best Wishes,
