About Tang Soo Do
Tang Soo Do is one of the oldest Martial arts.. It originated in Korea around 2,000 years ago, and the philosophy and techniques are still being taught today. The kicking techniques of Tang Soo Do are based on the ancient Korean kicking style of Tae Kyun, and the soft flowing movements come from the northern and southern Chinese systems. The word "Tang" originates from a Korean word meaning "to defend and strike." "Soo" means hand, but it may also be interpreted as a punch, a strike, a fist, or a defense. "Do" means a way of life. When you combine the three words, Tang Soo Do means "The Way of the Hand of Tang."
