CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Our studio teaches Tang Soo Do, a traditional martial art, that strongly values integrity, respect, and self-control.  We offer an atmosphere that is both serious in nature and fun.  You will learn to set goals for yourself and to make strides towards living a healthy life style. 

 

 

Alongside traditional training, such as forms (sequence of pre-arranged movement), we practice practical self-defense, learning techniques that focus on gross motor skills.  We keep it simple because when under stress, you are more likely to remember a simple move.
