No. Tang Soo Do is not the same as Soo Bahk Do®. The Tang Soo Do martial art system developed by Hwang Kee was a precursor to his more advanced Soo Bahk Do martial art system.
Moo Duk Kwan martial art school Founder Hwang Kee taught an early iteration of his martial art system and philosophy under the name "Tang Soo Do." Later he modified the contents of his system and coined the name "Soo Bahk Do®" to identify his unique martial art system as taught in all authorized Moo Duk Kwan martial art schools worldwide.
Members interested in applying for certification from the Moo Duk Kwan® to become Jo Kyo, Kyo Sa, Sa Bom Certified Instructors of the Soo Bahk Do® martial art system need to plan ahead and acquire the respective Instructor Certification Study kits well in advance.Read More
