Soo Bahk Do (Korean Karate)
Soo Bahk Do (Tang Soo Do) is a classical Korean martial art which consists of explosive kicking techniques and dynamic hand strikes. In practicing Soo Bahk Do we strive to build harmony of mind and body. We seek not only to prepare students for physical defense but to build character. Our program stresses scholarship, leadership and a unique philosophy that improves success in family, school, and work. Self Confidence, respect for elders, attention to detail, honesty, courage, concentration and humility are developed through training. Soo Bahk Do is not a sport. Students learn and progress at their own pace. Our program will get you into shape, tone muscles, reduce stress, improve your health and teach you many ways to deal more successfully with others. You will use your mind, your body and your spirit. You will accomplish things you never thought possible.
