The academy’s curriculum offers traditional and non-traditional martial arts studies for men, women and children. Studies begin their studies in Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan.


Tang Soo Do was founded in 1945 by Grandmaster Hwang Kee, Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do represents a combination of techniques and philosophies gathered from the indigenous Korean martial arts as well as other influence from China. The name of the art itself is technical and philosophical in nature and its translation is “Institute of Martial Virtue.” Moo Duk Kwan is the philosophical aspect while Tang Soo Do (combat with bare hands and feet) is the more technical aspect. The art itself demands more from the practitioner then a mere mastery of physical movements. It requires a complete mastery of one’s entire body - coordination, balance, speed and rhythm.
