What is Tang Soo Do?
Soo Do is one of the most popular of Korean martial arts, practiced by
hundreds of thousands around the world. Based on foot-fighting and empty-hand techniques that are both
hard and soft, offensive and defensive, passive and active in nature,
Tang Soo Do is a classical martial art that is steeped in tradition and
the military spirit. Much of the technique is based on a clinical, scientific study of
the principles involved and unique only to this style.
Soo Do was created with the purpose to develop every aspect of our self,
in order to create a mature personality that totally integrates
intellect, body, emotions, and spirit. This total integration helps to create a person who is free from
inner conflict and who can deal with the outside world in a mature,
intelligent, forthright, and virtuous manner. Training within this philosophy, and utilizing the structured and
systematic techniques developed under this style, Men, Women, and
Children quickly develop beyond expectation both physically and
mentally. Tang Soo Do teaches you or your child that through consistent
training, you can achieve the highest state of physical and mental
perfection possible, to be the best you can be! Train individually or together as a family.

reduction, Adults immediately experience the sense of balance and calm
required to achieve a happy physical and mental state. At the same time, Children and Teenagers begin to develop the
qualities and character strengths necessary to excel in today's

A Special Message to Parents
Professionals, physicians, and law enforcement agents all agree - Martial Arts will
help your child become the best they can be! One of the hardest tasks parents face is helping children attain
the power of confidence and self-esteem. Tang Soo Do helps build those necessary strengths, as well as the added
skills of leadership and self-defense, at an early age. With the peer pressure our young people face in today's society
wrought with drugs, crime, and mediocrity of achievement, you understand
how this could be a priceless gift to those you love. You can give that gift of physical, emotional, and inner strength
through our programs at World Class Institute of Martial Arts. We are pleased and honored to guide our students, your children,
in the art of Tang Soo Do. And no school is better equipped or more highly certified to do so!
