What is Tang Soo Do?

Tang Soo Do (pronounced “tong sue doe”) is a traditional Korean style of martial arts with origins similar to that of Tae Kwon Do. Consisting of primary systems of empty-handed self-defense dating back about 2000 years, Tang Soo Do was originally used as a way for common folks to protect themselves from the unforgiving sword of the Samurai. Although Korean martial arts were banned from 1910 to 1945, during the Japanese occupation, the style of Tang Soo Do survived through underground teachings.

Tang represents the Chinese influence on the development of modern Tang Soo Do. Many Koreans escaped the Japanese occupation living and working in China. Grand Master Hwang Kee, founder of Moo Duk Kwon, the precursor to Tang Soo Do, was among the displaced Koreans in China until the end of World War II.

Soo translates to “hand” or “open-hand” as there are many techniques for blocking and striking that involve the use of open-hands. Also, the term open-handed carries the implication of being unarmed. While we will learn to use and defend against typical martial arts weapons, the art of Tang Soo Do is the art of the unarmed, open-handed self-defense.

Do is related to the Chinese word “tao” or “dao” meaning “path” or “way.” Therefore, Tang Soo Do is the open hand way; a way of life, a path to follow. As such, it carries with it not only techniques for effective self-defense and fighting, but a philosophy for living honorably, cultivating mental prowess, physical fitness, developing respect for others and earning respect in return.

Why Everyone Should Earn a Black Belt?

  Earning a black belt is important because traditional martial arts training is far more complex than simply learning self defense; instruction focuses on the individual and regularly provides opportunities for not only physical growth, but mental and spiritual growth as well. In addition to advocating physical fitness, participation in the martial arts promotes honesty, integrity, dedication, perseverance, respect, honor, courtesy, community and loyalty. Martial arts students enjoy lifelong benefits from improved intrapersonal and interpersonal communication skills, increased mental focus, physical fitness, & practical, effective self defense skills.

So, why should everyone earn a black belt? Black belt students experience improved grades and perform better at school or work, and in sports or other activities.  Black belt students are mentally, physically & emotionally healthy and strong.  Black belt students have a strong self-discipline, respect and a positive attitude.  Black belt students have the confidence and self-esteem to confront life’s challenges and say no to peer pressure.  Black belt students have the skills and ability to stand up to bullies, and effectively defend themselves, and/or others.

So, how long does it take for the average person to earn a black belt you ask? Well my friends, the average person does not earn a black belt!
