About Combat Tang Soo Do

Grand-Master-Eddie-JacobsenIt is the objective of Combat Tang Soo Do to provide the public with qualified, practical and concise training which will lead to a proper understanding of combat related training, this will be practical and effective with techniques for self defence as well as sports competition.

Being involved in Martial Arts, Security and Combat related training for the past 30 years, has proven to me that many people who have received training in the Fighting Arts sometimes do not know what they are doing and have "false" self-confidence due to bad training.

This is not entirely the fault of the instructor, as in many cases he / she is only teaching what they where taught and in many instances their highly qualified Instructors where never taught proper applications and energy work relating to various techniques. 

In Combat Tang Soo Do we offer traditional training in Tang Soo Do the Korean fighting art famous for its powerful kicks, as well as adding modern practical self defence training and weapons work. All the traditional Tang Soo Do forms, kicks, basics and weapons are part of CTSD. These are complimented with practical techniques from various martial arts including hapkido, kung fu and Okinawan karate as well as western boxing. In addition some traditional Okinawan weaponry, e.g. sai & tonfa, and more practical weapons like knife and Kali/Eskrima are also taught. Training in Combat tang Soo Do.

This makes CTSD extremely effective across all ranges of fighting, with kicks for long range, hand strikes for medium range, knees, elbows and grappling/throwing for close up. The weapons also provide another avenue for effective self defence.
