About this pro

As one of the most family-friendly martial arts currently available, Kuk Sool Won™ covers the entire realm of traditional Asian techniques in regards to body conditioning, mental development, self-defense and combat fighting arts, including traditional weapons training.

Furthermore, Kuk Sool Won™ is not solely focused on the physical methods of attack and defense, but also with the study of healing techniques, the development of internal power, and achieving good health and physical fitness. Training in Kuk Sool Won™ also helps to instill confidence, self-discipline, a calm self-assurance, and other psychological strengths which are usually associated with the character of a martial artist.

All of this means that Kuk Sool Won™ is not limited to a particular style of martial arts, but is a well-organized, systematic study of the entire spectrum of Korean martial arts, dating from ancient times to the present. Its vast scope incorporates many different martial art styles while its unique curriculum makes learning all of them seem anything but complex. As such, you will find that Kuk Sool Won™ is perfect for anyone of any age or gender, especially for those with different goals, needs, or any physical limitations.

 My name is Gehrik Mohr and I'm a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Kuk Sool Won. I have been studying Kuk Sool Won  consistently for 25 years. I started in  Berkley, Michigan under 3rd Degree Black Belt Lawrence Johansen. I opened my first schools back in 2000 in Troy and Novi. Since 1992 I've personally trained with many Masters in Kuk Sool, including Kuk Sa Nim - In Hyuk Suh - the Grandmaster himself. I traveled to Korea in 2002 to train at the temples with the  Great Monk.  Since then, I train every September with 9th Degree Master Sung Jin Suh, the Grandmaster's oldest son and heir to the World Kuk Sool Association.

Thankyou for reviewing my profile and I'm looking forward to helping you learn martial arts and self defense.

Sincerely,
Bu Sa Bum Nim Gehrik Mohr
3rd Degree Black Belt / Owner, Instructor

    My son and I have been students of Owner/Head Instructor Gehrik Mohr at Kuk Sool Won of Madison Heights for nearly nine years. We were hooked after our first lesson, and have trained consistently ever since. Mr. Mohr has a unique ability to tailor his teaching methods to the individual needs of each student, no matter their age or abilities, resulting in greatly enhanced depth of learning. The results extend far beyond the scope of the curriculum into improved life skills in general. His enthusiasm for effective teaching in a positive manner are truly exemplary. I recommend Mr. Mohr with the highest level of confidence.

    I am a Teacher's Assistant working with Autistic students and I love to study Martial Arts when I'm not working in school. I find Gehrik Mohr to be one of the best instructors I've had in a while. He understands what is important in Martial Arts and is able to adapt to the students level to work from where they are at. He pays attention to details making sure students learn the fundamentals first before working toward harder stuff as to avoid injury and ensure the students are learning properly. There is also a large focus on self discipline and etiquette which is both very powerful for people to learn, particularly children, but also something I have seen skipped in other systems. The classes can also be fun at times, with us training in the park or being given interesting challenges for the day. I have been to several schools and styles of Martial Arts and I have found no better place to train in the area than at Kuk Sool Won Madison Heights under Gehrik Mohr. I would suggest his classes to anyone interested in Martial Arts or Fitness in general. I also highly suggest this for any parents who want their child to learn self control, etiquette, and a plethora of other skills useful in school and at home.

    I have been training as a student of PSBN Gehrik Mohr for 15 years, and 5 more years before that from his teacher, ( a hard act to follow ). As a professional in the field of health, I can highly recommend Mr. Mohr for his professional and sincere effort to help people of all ages, as he helps you to achieve your personal health goals, your self defense goals, your physical fitness goals, self respect, respect for others, patience, not to mention the science, art, and philosophy of Kuk Sool Won, the greatest martial arts system available today.
