TANG SOO DO
Tang Soo Do is a traditional martial art from Korea. It is over
2000 years old and is designed to benefit both the physical and
mental realm of one’s being. Today its techniques and philosophy
are still taught as they were in ancient times.
Literally translated, the “Tang” means Tang Dynasty of China that
shared cultural backgrounds between China and Korea. “Soo” means
hand, but it implies fist and “Do” means the way of life or art.
Thus Tang Soo Do is “The way of the China Hand” or “The way of the

Tang Soo Do is based on the principles of yielding and accepting
circular motion. One’s full-body physical development adds to Tang
Soo Do’s reputation for superior kicking techniques, mental
strength, integrity and respect for others.
