North American Tang Soo Do

The power is in the ability to take action.


North American Tang Soo Do Federation

The North American Tang Soo Do Federation was founded in July of 1992 in Boca Raton, Florida. Its heritage stems from the 9th century when Soo Balk Do, the ancient form of Tang Soo Do, was practiced in Korea. Tang Soo Do was founded in 1945 by the renowned Grand Master Hwang Kee who came to the United States and formed the United States Tang Soo Do Federation. Master Ron Tramontano tested in the 75 Dan testing and received his Dan rank from Grand Master Hwang Kee. He formed an extremely successful West Boca Karate Tang Soo Do studio in Boca Raton, Florida in June of 1986. Master Tramontano soon founded the North American Tang Soo Do Federation which now is headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida.

This book has been written for all martial art systems to enjoy. It has long been Master Tramontano's feeling that if a system of self defense is going to be practical, it must teach the student how to take a person to the ground. It is equally as important to be able to keep them there until their intentions are known.

The first chapter of this book will teach the reader eighteen combinations. The combinations first and foremost teaches the reader how to defend yourself. Master Tramontano doubts that you will ever use one of the combinations from the beginning to the end; a real confrontation will not permit you to react in this exact manner. The combinations instead, are designed to give you many options. All combinations contain devastating techniques which include blows and strikes to vital areas, as well as takedowns to bring your opponent to the ground and restraining techniques to keep him there. Each combination is also a beautifully orchestrated demonstration of your ability with a partner. Instructors and school owners will find this to be of great value. In short, your students can easily be transformed into a very capable demonstration team.

As instructors of the Martial Arts, we strive to provide students with confidence in themselves, with the ability to use their personal power, and to take action when necessary. Master Tramontano has given you some new tools as well as a new concept. He hopes that you enjoy your new journey towards Black Belt Excellence.
