Learn about Soo Bahk Do - Korean Martial Arts Style

Soo Bahk Do is a Korean martial arts style that grew out of Tang Soo Do. This martial arts focuses on kicks, punches, forms (hyung), self-defense (ho sin sool), etc.

Soo Bahk Do is taught at Moo Duk Kwan schools worldwide. There are numerous schools in the United States, UK, Australia and a number of other countries.

According to Glendora Korean Karate, "Two of the many things that separate Soo Bahk Do from all other arts and make it unique, are its versatility and philosophy. Because ancient Korea was constantly attacked by both Japan and China, Soo Bahk Do became versatile out of necessity, the result being an art which demands mastery of the whole body, not just kicking and punching. Challenging techniques ranging from quick and spontaneous movements to slow graceful flowing movements offer not only variety but also challenge everyone. Second, many styles teach effective self defense and fighting principles but Soo Bahk Do offers much more than just that. Learning fighting techniques without a strong philosophy is to burden society with more dangerous people. We use Soo Bahk Do to realize our full potential and emphasize "Virtue in action" demonstrating courage, discipline, confidence and humility".
