Physically Tang Soo Do Martial Arts is based on the principles of yielding, circular motion and penetration. Things like blocking, kicking and striking, as well as forms and highly effective self-defense techniques.

However as an art, Tang Soo Do Karate combines all aspects of body, mind and spirit, such as character building qualities, defensive and offensive skills, developing power and living a HEALTHY and HARMONIOUS life.

All of which help to ensure living up to your potential, setting big goals and making your dreams come true.

While Tang Soo Do is a defensive art and should never be used violently or excessively, our awesome instructors teach your child so much more than just grappling and joint locking techniques. Our goal for you and your family is to not only possess excellent self-defense techniques, but more importantly, to develop and perfect your character – who you are and what you’re about - leading to a more peaceful and balanced life.

Our highly-skilled instructors will show your kids how to stand-up for themselves and be confident in any situation. Kids learn how to be BULLY-PROOF, how to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad, and they’ll know how to defend themselves if they need to.

Anyone can learn martial arts and you don’t need any prior experience to start. We teach you the basics in a safe and friendly environment. The hardest part is taking that first step. But you have to start your practice first to find out just how AMAZING it is! No matter what your current fitness level is, we’ll help you reach your goals and unleash your full potential. So…what is it that you want to accomplish in life?

Our instructors are all certified, energetic and outgoing. They participate in advanced training in order to upgrade their skills. They have a sincere interest in YOU, your self-improvement and in helping you reach your goals.
