"The open handed fighting way of the T'ang Dynasty"
Tang Soo Do is a classical martial art which is especially noted by most experts as a superior kicking style.
It is an ancient martial art originating over 2,000 years ago in Korea and is one
of the oldest forms of karate practiced around the world today.
During the many years of Japanese domination, the Korean citizenry was expressly forbidden
to engage in the practice of martial arts. As a result, many practitioners went
"underground" with their training. Some ventured into China and Okinawa to
escaped capture and to continue practice of the arts unfettered. One such person,
Hwang Kee, was the founder of Tang Soo Do. Although the Japanese forbade the practice
of martial arts, Hwang Kee continued to practice and teach in his native homeland.
