Tang Soo Do for Adults
Tang Soo Do (Korean martial arts) gained popularity in the U.S. initially through movies by Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee. This style is a composite of 60% Soo Bak (ancient foot fighting methods) and 40% Chinese hand techniques. It features dynamic kicking, punching and blocking techniques along with powerful self-defense capabilities. Classes are structured to give students the maximum benefit per hour in fitness coordination and skill development under the watchful eye of experienced black belt instructors.
Classes are taught by highly skilled, certified black belts in a safe and structured atmosphere. Students find classes educational, empowering and fun. Disciplined training combined with ethical standards produces strong, confident students with many leadership character qualities. We emphasize responsibility and control, not destruction. Kids learn non-violent conflict resolution along with low-level self-defense skills for handling the class bullies. Don’t overlook this unique training discipline or ages 4 and up.
As you are reading this, I hope that your exposure to martial arts is more than what is depicted in the movies which is most times quite violent with little regard for how that violence can affect us. True martial art training does more than teach dominating fighting skills, it emphasizes the development of the total individual in mind body and spirit. As students become more skilled they are able to utilize what is called the “least amount of force philosophy” to avoid hurting an opponent more than may be necessary while confronting injustice or controlling a potentially hostile situation. If we can replace fear with confidence students are free to become all they can be. Good martial arts does not equate to violence but control.
Don’t overlook this unique training discipline for ages 4 and up.
