Welcome To The Independent Tang Soo Do Association!

Tang Soo Do Association
The primary objective of the Independent Tang Soo Do Association is to bring together Tang Soo Do studios, organizations and practitioners who are looking for an organization that can support individual practitioner or studio needs and fosters growth of it’s members while preserving traditional Tang Soo Do techniques and philosophies.
Practical Tang Soo Do
The Association provides the foundation for its members down to the student level to gain an in-depth understanding into Tang Soo Do philosophy, techniques and history. This is accomplished by fostering a well-rounded, quality-based program inclusive of the many aspects of Tang Soo Do. In addition, it encourages growth of the spirit of martial arts within each of its members. It serves to achieve this by adding to member school’s already established curriculum and not imposing a particular Tang Soo Do curriculum upon Association members. ´┐╝However, it is expected the Association members maintain the highest level of proficiency.
Tang Soo Do
This high level of proficiency is achieved by providing learning and sharing opportunities through seminars and clinics, Tang Soo Do competitions, and Gup and Dan Shim Sa between Association studio members and their instructors and students. It is with this that a higher level of proficiency in Tang Soo Do can be achieved.
