Tang Soo Do Information

Tang Soo Do is a Korean martial art promoted by Hwang Kee that has roots in various martial arts including, taekkyeon and Subak.

Tang Soo Do is the Korean pronunciation of the Chinese characters 唐手道 . Tang Soo Do literally means "China Hand Way" . Similar characters are pronounced karate-dō in Japanese. The first character, 唐 , was later changed to 空 by Gichin Funakoshi to mean "empty" rather than "China" . Outside of the far east, the term "Tang Soo Do" has primarily become synonymous with the Korean martial art promoted by Hwang Kee.

Most schools of Tang Soo Do use the transcription "Tang Soo Do". However, scientific texts apply the official transcription "tangsudo", written as one word. Some authors write "Tang Soo Do" and give "tangsudo" or "dangsudo" in the parenthesis. Under the Korean government's Revised Romanization System the martial art's name would be rendered "Dang Su Do".
