About Lakes Area Martial Arts and Tang Soo Do

Lakes Area Martial Arts, a member of the American Kwan Traditional Korean Tang Soo Do Federation.

Lakes Area Martial Arts Style is primarly based upon Tang Soo Do, with elements of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu. Although Lakes Area Martial Arts is primarly Tang Soo Do, we do respect the contributions of other martial arts. Many of our instructors and students have brought this valuable experience to the school from other martial arts.

According to texts published by Hwang Kee, the ancestral art of Korean Soo Bahk Do can be traced back to the period when Korea was divided into three kingdoms: Silla, Baekje, and Goguryeo.

Tang Soo Do has strived to represent the Traditional Korean art where Tae Kwon Do has come to represent the modern sport of Karate.
