On joining the
UKSF (United Kingdom SulKiDo
Federation) members will
recieve a copy of the
SulKiDo handbook, which was written by the
original (deceased) founder of SulKiDo. In order to grade, members must
know the following pieces of information from it:
The three principles upon which SulKiDo is based are
The Water Principle
The Circle Principle
The Harmony Principle
The Water Principle:
When deflecting the attacker's punch, we are like water which has been
penetrated by a stone: no sooner has the stone divided the water than it
flows together again to surround and envelop the stone.
The Circle Principle:
Instead of blocking the attacker's punch with a direct counterblock, in
other words meeting force with force, we would utilise the circular
principle and deflect or re-direct the force of the punch.
The Harmony Principle:
Even though the force of the punch is directed straight at us, we do not
oppose that force but instead go with it. In this way we harmonise with the
force, becoming one with it.
