ABOUT KOO SELF DEFENSE
History of Koo Self Defense
Koo Self Defense was developed in Cartersville, Georgia, USA by
Master Roger Koo in 1992 following 20+ years of traditional Martial
Arts training (32 years to date). Through his many years of training
since the age of fifteen, Master Koo discovered that most of the
techniques he had been taught and sought to perfect were not practical
and did not translate into real life situations. All martial arts
find their roots in other martial arts styles. Koo Self Defense
Master Koo while in his search for a progressive and practical
martial arts found Choi Kwang Do but after only a short time found
it to be very limited. It, like other martial arts styles emphasized
on one look for all students rather than one that fits each. He
found that all martial arts systems tried to duplicate the movements
of its founder which severely limited individual achievement. He
abandoned this antiquated approach and developed a revolutionary,
progressive and more importantly realistic and varied methods of
training and drills for his students.
While others sought to adopt from other styles, Master Roger Koo
eliminated all traditional techniques which found no real translation
into real self defense situations. Koo Self Defense is leading
the way in the much needed evolution of martial arts and self defense
