What is Soo Bahk Do®?

Soo Bahk Do is a classical martial art originating in Korea many centuries ago. It consists of both "hard" & "soft" styles. Soo Bahk Do is noted for its explosive kicking techniques and dynamic hand strikes. It utilizes scientific theory to attain maximum power in its techniques.

Soo Bahk Do is a harmony of body and mind. We seek not only to prepare students for physical defense but to build character.
