Copyright 2022 - Equilibrium Combat Tang Soo Do


Rules are necessary to ensure that training runs smoothly and that students gain the maximum benefit from their training. Rules also set out some of the customs and traditions that a new student is normally unaware of before starting Tang Soo Do.

Formal rules are also a practice of safety. At any school worthy of its name, there is an element of controlled danger. Rules provide the control. In a Tang Soo Do Dojang students are using weapons and techniques that are potentially lethal. Rules provide the environment within which these can be practiced.
