Martial Arts Ohio - We Train To Win

Here at Martial Arts Ohio we train in a system called Kuk Sul Do as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Have you heard of either one?

You can be one of a select group to train in both styles. Under noted Master Jason Zakrajsek you will learn to utilize pressure points, joint locking, and Korean weapons through Kuk Sul Do!

Then there is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ takes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger person by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably�bringing the fight to the ground.

Beginners benefit greatly from the fusion of these two styles - you will gain a great boost in focus, discipline, and self confidence that you can take into any aspect of your life.�s one heck of a workout! Kicking, punching, and learning how to move your own body in fun and interesting ways will get you sweating in no time.

Martial Arts Ohio is a proud affiliate of the Top Level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Cuyahoga Falls under Black Belt instructor Mr. Bill Jones as well. We look forward to hearing from you soon and answering any questions you may have!

Jack Edwards, Head Instructor & Owner

A former student of Master Wayne Murry from Chagrin Falls Ohio, Mr. Edwards has devoted over twenty years to the study and perfection of Kuk Sool.

Having achieved his first degree black belt in 1998, he was promoted to 2nd Degree in 2008 and was promoted to 3rd degree in Oct 2014. He opened his first martial arts school in Ravenna in 2003, but needed more space, and moved to Kent in 2011. This was the year the school was also privileged and honored to host the 2011 Great Lakes Tournament. As a competitor Mr. Edwards won Senior Grand Champion at the Kuk Sool Won Midwest Tournament.

A former Marine and veteran of Operation Desert Storm, Mr. Edwards is also a resource and role model for many local communities. He has dedicated himself to teaching students of all ages the principles, techniques and forms Kuk Sool Won both at Martial Arts Ohio and elsewhere. He has taught for many organizations including Garrettsville, Ravenna, Rootstown, Brimfield and Crestwood elementary and middle schools in addition to private and charter schools in the Kent, Ohio area.

He enjoys the challenges and rewards of martial arts training and believes that each student comes to Kuk Sool with unique talents and abilities. Mr. Edwards aims to demonstrate how hard work, dedication and perseverance can lead not only to a black belt but to a lifetime of good health and balance in all things.
