Tang Soo Do, The exact origin of Tang Soo Do as well as all other martial arts is obscure although there. are a number of historical theories The most traditional view is that martial arts did not originate. in any one country but evolved in all parts of the globe as a method of self defence that was. needed by primitive people,Development in Early Years. The ancestral art of Korean Tang Soo Do can be traced back to. the period when Korea was divided into three kingdoms. Koguryo was founded in 37 BC in northern Korea The Silla. Dynasty was founded in 57 BC in the southeast peninsula The. third kingdom Paekche was founded in 18 BC, Finally after a long series of wars the Silla Dynasty united the.
three kingdoms in 668 AD During this period the primitive. martial arts were very popular as a method of self defence in. warfare This is evidence in the many mural paintings ruins and. remains which depict Tang Soo Do in those days, Among the three kingdoms the Silla Dynasty was most famous. for its development of martial arts A corps composed of a group. of young aristocrats who were called Hwa Rang Dan was the. major force behind the development of the art These warriors. were instrumental in unifying the Korean peninsula under the new Silla Dynasty 668 AD 935. AD Many of the early leaders of that dynasty were originally members of the Hwa Rang Dan. Most Korean martial arts trace their spiritual and technical heritage to this group In fact the. names of some martial arts such as Hwa Rang Do or Hwa Soo Do still reflect this origination. Medieval Development, The United Silla Kingdom was ultimately overthrown by a warlord. Wang Kun in 918 AD The new Kingdom Koryo lasted for 475. years 918 AD 1392 AD In 1392 the Yi Dynasty successes the. Koryo Kingdom The Yi Dynasty remained intact for 500 years. During the 1000 year period of the Koryo Kingdom and the Yi. Dynasty what we today know as Tang Soo Do was increasingly. popular with the military More importantly however the art also. became very popular with the general public During this period. Tang Soo Do was referred to as Kwon Bop Tae Kyun Soo Bahk. Tang Soo and others, The first complete martial arts book was written at this time This. most important book is called Mooyae Dobo Tangji It was. written in 1790 and contained illustrations that substantiated the. theory that Tang Soo Do formally called Soo Bahk Ki had quickly developed into a very. sophisticated art of combat techniques,Modern History. The occupation of Korea by the Japanese military regime took place from. 1909 to 1945 During this period practicing and teaching of any martial arts. was restricted in Korea After World War II in 1945 this restriction was lifted. Several martial arts training schools were soon erected. School Founders,Moon Duk Kwan Hwang Kee,Chi Do Kwan Kwai Byung Yun.
Chung Do Kwan Kuk Sung Son,Song Moo Kwan Byung Jik No. Chang Moo Kwan Nam Suk Lee,Yun Moo Kwan Sang Sup Chun. These founders started to organize their own groups respectively and Master Hwang Kee. organized the Korean Soo Bahk Do Association in November 9 1945 In addition to the Soo. Bahk Do Association in Korea there were various other types of martial arts call Kong Soo. or Tae Soo In 1965 all of these various systems united into one organization called the. Korean Tae Kwon Do Association The art was uniformly called Tae Kwon Do. As a Korean national sport Tae Kwon Do initiated a new era Instructors were dispatched. throughout the world and international tournaments were held In those days Tang Soo Do. and Tae Kwon Do were divided in priciple with Tang Soo Do striving to remain as a traditional. martial art while Tae Kwon Do held its world games and sports Self discipline and fitness are. key aspects to our teaching,Five Codes of Tang Soo Do. The Five Codes are a part of our Tang Soo Do heritage which was written by a monk called. Won Kwang Won Kwang was a renowned Buddhist monk scholar and teacher of the Silla. Kingdom during the reign of King Jinpyeong, The five codes of Tang Soo Do apply to all members and are meant to guide the students. throughout their training and private lives All Members are required to memorise them and. fully understand the meaning of the codes,Loyalty to country.

Self Control,Indomitable Spirit,Philosophy of the Belt System. Our Tang Soo Do Gup belt system in its progress from white to black represents the cycle of. the seasons Each colour stands for a specific stage of achievement In this way we realize. an essential concept of oriental philosophy i e that which is born must grow reach maturity. die and leave behind seeds of a new birth,Class Structure.
Generally students are expected to arrive at the Do Jang approximately 15 minutes before the. start of class so that all students can start warming up and stretching together. After the warm up the class are lined up and we salute the flags and the instructor as a sign of. respect and gratitude, The lessons are never the same but we do start by practising basic kicks and hand techniques. to help warm up to prepare for training, What do we mean by etiquette Etiquette describes how we conduct ourselves in and out of. the Do Jang whether we are being watched by others or not It extends from within the Do Jang. to outside into our everyday lives To help students improve themselves we have a set of basic. codes to establish good etiquette,Entering the Do Jang. When entering the Do Jang we Bow and say Tang Soo This is an acknowledgement that we. are about to train show respect to others within the hall and the hall itself Unless the hall is. clean and in good order then we are unable to train without the risk of injury so it is the. responsibility of everyone to ensure that the floor is clean and equipment being used is in good. order In helping to sweep the floor and look after equipment we learn humility and how not to. put ourselves above others, After you have entered the Do Jang you should now approach your instructor and bow. If you are in the hall when the instructor enters then a student will call cha ryut Sah Bum Nim. E kyung Yet Attention Bow to instructor,Before Class.
