WHAT IS TANG SOO DO?
Tang Soo Do is a Korean martial art whose roots date back some 2,000 years and is based upon techniques adopted from Chinese warriors of the Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD). These techniques were then merged with native Korean fighting arts, such as Soo Bahk Ki and Tae Kyun to form Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do literally means ‘China Hand Way’.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We (my son and myself) have joined nearly a year ago and we absolutely love it. It’s not just exercising but also building up confidence, practicing discipline and patience. We get always treated with respect and are supported on our way to new targets. And most of all it’s fun, because it’s like finding a new family 😁 The new Oldham Mega centre looks amazing and is waiting for you to come and try TANG SOO DO 🥋
