In today's hectic society, there is no doubt that we need self-defense skills. Equally important are physical fitness and methods for the release of daily stress. No matter whether you are seeking self-defense, better health, physical fitness or discipline, our Tang Soo Do can meet your needs. However, Tang Soo Do has its own unique character which differentiates it from any other form of martial arts or martial sports. Tang Soo Do not only teaches physical techniques but also trains us to practice it's way of life through practice of the five virtues; "IN" -humanity, "UI"-righteousness, "YIE"-etiquette, "JI"-wisdom and "SHIN"-trust. When we reach the ultimate level of "DO", we can live in perfect harmony with the laws of nature.

 

Although people generally select a martial arts school for reasons other than the martial arts style taught at the school (e.g., reputation, location, character-development emphasis, family focus) it's still good to have a general understanding of the styles of martial arts before beginning a search for the best school for you. Our style of martial arts training is called Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do is (60%) Korean Style and (40%) Chinese Style thus making it mostly Korean martial arts.

img_1666We obviously believe that Tang Soo Do is the best of the martial arts relative to the physical aspects. But what makes Starworld Academy of Tang Soo Do special is that our training goes far beyond the kick, the punch and the throw. We also place a strong emphasis on the personal development of our students.

While we are experts in teaching Tang Soo Do techniques, a large focus of our training is on developing the following personal attributes in our students: self-confidence, focus, discipline, fitness, healthy weight and self-esteem.  

The development of these personal attributes is inherent within all martial arts but, at Starworld Academy of Tang Soo Do, we put a special emphasis on maximizing our student's potential in all aspects of their life.

Improved Physical Fitness
Make no mistake. Martial arts is a great workout! It is a total body workout — your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all show signs of improvement.
Enhanced Self-Esteem
By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations — whether you’re in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self confidence, making them virtually “bully proof.”
Increased Focus and Concentration
From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. That’s why the Mayo Clinic specifically counts the marital arts of karate and taekwondo among the effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.
Increased Social Skills
Martial arts strongly emphasize self discipline and self control as a core component of its teachings. Self leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result.
Stress Relief
Kicking, punching and screaming are a great release, no matter what your age.
Respect for Values
Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and excellence are some curriculum areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults become great leaders.
