With over 45 years of experience I am considered to be an authority in the field of martial arts and self defense.
I have worked with CEOs, Film and Sport Celebrities, and members of Royal Families.
I have been inducted into the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame and in 2018, I was inducted into the Who's Who in the Martial Arts.
I possess an 8th degree black belt in art of Tang Soo Do
My inspiration is watching the seeds of knowledge planted within my students grow.
Master Ross is an outstanding teacher. He teaches the art and the science behind Tang Soo Do. He is patient, kind, and really, really good at what he does! He takes a genuine interest in the growth of each student individually. Master Ross teaches fundamental Tang Soo Do, so that the house of knowledge built on that foundation is strong. I cannot speak highly enough about what a great influence he has been. If you are serious about learning this art, you need not look any further.
Steve is highly experienced in martial arts and truly a subject matter expert. He is a former martial arts world champion and Hall of Fame inductee. He is also excellent in teaching kids the skill and discipline of martial arts. We are fortunate that our son and daughter are able to learn from Master Steve Ross.
Extremely knowledgeable and true master of martial arts. He possesses high ethics. Integrity, fair, caring person for his employees, students, and all stakeholders. I am very honored to have known and work with grand master Steve Ross since 1995.
Master Steve Ross. Is the Best of the Best. He is extremely professional and thorough with the time he spends with his students. I have learned so much from him.
