Q:  What is Tang Soo Do?
A:  Tang Soo Do is an ancient martial art, which originated 2000 years ago in Korea. Tang Soo Do is a method of empty hand, foot, and weapon fighting based on scientific use of the body in self-defense. Tang Soo Do is based on the principles of yielding, circular motion and penetration. As a student you will learn to use your hands and feet in such a manner as to simulate actual combat with an armed or unarmed opponent. The techniques and philosophy are taught as they were in ancient times, although the system has adjusted to the modern lifestyle. Most of all, Tang Soo Do is designed to develop individual character, mental strength, integrity, and respect for other.
