Welcome to Dublin Tang Soo Do


Though relatively new (as martial arts go), Tang Soo Do is very traditional in its roots and its practice. It is a style of karate which incorporates meditation, basic techniques, forms, sparring, self defense, and breaking techniques to form a complete system of training.

Karate is most easily differentiated from other martial arts by its preference to utilize kicks and punches over grappling techniques and throws. Karate is a Japanese word meaning "empty hand" or "Chinese hand". Tang Soo means the same in Korean. Thus, karate is a study of empty handed fighting techniques
