What is Tang Soo Do

The very first evidence of this ancient form of Korean martial arts appeared during the Three Kingdom era (57 BC-935 AD) as Hwa Rang Do. Since then, 2,000 years have passed. The indigenous martial arts quietly developed through generations of the Korean people. During some eras it flourished and other times it diminished, according to the political, economic or cultural environment. The art was known by various names throughout the eras as Hwa Rang Do, Moo Sul, Kyuck Too Ki, Soo Bahk Ki, Soo Byuck Ki, Taek Kyun etc. respectively.


Treasure Coast Tang Soo Do is part of Region 21 of World Tang Soo Do Association. Martial Arts is so much more than punching and kicking. Becoming a black belt takes commitment. To earn your black belt, you have to master the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the art.

What we learn in the dojang develops leaders, better neighbors, and great friends. Our black belts are held to high standards which inspires everyone training to learn more, practice, and keep growing and improving continually. Check out our Facebook page  Treasure Coast Tang Soo Do.



December 20, 1936 – July 9, 2012 Grandmaster Jae C. Shin is the founder of the World Tang Soo Do Association, and is one of the leading figures of martial arts in the world today.



On April 1, 2017 at the 28th Annual Masters’ Clinic, the Board of Directors voted to approve Grandmaster William Strong as the President of the World Tang Soo Do Association.



The real value of Tang Soo Do is not the belt you earn, but the changes that occur within you, in your quest for them. These changes include the betterment of your mind, body and spirit and the development of individual character and respect for others. The true goal of Tang Soo Do training is to use the lessons you learn in the studio to enrich every part of your life.
