               Tae Soo Do® - " The Way of The Warrior Spirit "


Tae Soo Do® was developed for the beginner martial artist, both children and adults. It is our Undergraduate Program, and is the prerequisite to the Graduate level of the Hwa Rang Do® Program. Tae Soo Do® focuses on the fundamentals, basic concepts, and mechanics underlying the physical realm of training, while also developing a greater understanding of the philosophies inherent in the practice of a martial art.

While it is also considered the sport version of Hwa Rang Do®, the Tae Soo Do® program is a fantastic form of recreation for betterment of mind and body.
