More importantly, Kuk Sool has a wide range of responses to an attack. They go from avoiding, to the merely controlling, to the painful, to the injuring, to the deadly. An important part of the philosophy behind Kuk Sool is that one meets an attack with an equal response. If someone grabs your shirt, the only response some people know is to break their knees with a kick. Kuk Sool considers such a response inappropriate. In Kuk Sool one learns that small threats can be met with small responses which will probably avert further trouble without causing more problems than they solve.
