What is Tang Soo Do?

What is Tang Soo Do

Tang Soo Do is a Korean Martial Art founded by Grandmaster Hwang Kee in 1945, but whose roots are centuries old. It is a system that combines the superior kicking techniques of Korean Arts with the circular hand techniques of various Chinese systems. Therefore Tang Soo Do is considered both a “hard” and “soft” style of martial arts.

Tang Soo Do is more than just an effective system of self-defense, it is an art that if taken seriously will help change the practitioner’s entire life. Through consistent dedicated training, the Tang Soo Do student will learn more than just how to protect themselves. They will learn how to improve their Mind, Body, and Spirit. Regardless of age, gender, or size Tang Soo Do has something for everyone.

Tang Soo Do has something for You!
