What is Tang Soo Do

At Fitzgerald’s Martial Arts, LLC, we specialize in the instruction of the original martial art of Korea- Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do is a method of empty hand and foot fighting based on the scientific use of the body in self-defense. With our additional weapons classes, students dramatically increase their practical self defense skills. This depth of training stresses the development of individual character, integrity, and respect for others. Utilizing structured and systematic methods of training, men, women, and children can quickly develop beyond their expectation through our exciting program of physical and mental training. Tang Soo Do teaches us that through consistent training we will become the very best we can- physically, mentally, and spiritually!
