Our Lineage - Our Roots Go Deep


Our Art

The Korean Martial Art of Tang Soo Do is a classical martial art concerned with traditional martial ways, form and aesthetics. The martial art of Tang Soo Do is relatively modern, but its roots lie in the ancient Korean art of Soo Bahk Do, which can be traced back many centuries. Tang Soo Do is a style composed from three major areas and styles, which are Soo Bahk Do (60%), Northern China Kung Fu (30%) and Southern China Kung Fu (10%) and the Okinawan discipline of Karate. Learn More about our art.


Physical Training of Tang Soo Do

Forms are the foundation of our art. In Korean, a form is called a hyung. The benefits of Hyungs are many. Hyungs teach students balance, body awareness, coordination, and proper breathing. Hyungs also develop strong flexible bodies

In addition to the traditional art, we also teach self defense. In today’s ever increasing violent society we must focus on self defense as the core of our martial art. At PKSA Karate University, we offer the most cutting edge techniques in self defense. Our instructors have several years of training.


Mental training of Tang Soo Do

Tang Soo Do is a journey. Through this journey the student learns not only the physical art of Tang Soo Do, but also the principals necessary to develop “every aspect of self.” These principals include respect, discipline, perseverance, integrity and honor. We teach these principals through a goal oriented curriculum designed to develop character and life skills
