What is Tang Soo Do?

Tang Soo Do means "the way of the Chinese hand" or "the art of the knife hand." It has elements of Chinese internal methods and Japanese striking styles. As a modern martial art form, Tang Soo Do’s purpose is to develop every aspect of the 'self' to integrate totally the intellect, emotions, body and spirit in order to produce a well rounded, mature person.

Tang Soo Do has a great deal of kicks, hand strikes, and stances. Tang Soo Do uses hard styles as well as softer stances along with more fluid motions that are indicative of the ofter styles. From Soo Bahk Do we get the hardness and from Northern Chinese systems we get the soft flowing movements. The superior kicking techniques are based on Soo Bahk Do, and both styles can easily be seen in the forms that are practiced within Tang Soo Do.

Studio sparring and competition sparring is a very important part of Tang Soo Do training. The techniques used in these types of sparring could be dangerous and could result in serious injury if not properly controlled. Tang Soo Do is not a competitive sport, although there are annual competitions. Kick boxing sparring is traditionally not part of Tang Soo Do training.

While competing at Tang Soo Do Annual Competitions, face or groin contact is not allowed. Light to moderate contact to the sides and front of the body are allowed. In many other contact sports where personal injuries happen, Tang Soo Do is actually a very safe activity. We promote good sportsmanship, respect and personal discipline which insure that practitioners compete in the safe and friendly environment. The purpose of Tang Soo Do is not for fighting, rather to enhance one's self body and mind by perfecting the techniques through hours and hours of training. When the time comes to defend yourself, the hours of training and the development of your physical skills and proper spirit will guide you.
