Hwa Rang Do/Tae Soo Do

"The most comprehensive martial art in the world"

Hwa Rang Do® World Headquarters Academy is a traditional martial arts school, which maintains the classic values of Eastern thought.  Hwa Rang Do®  which means “The Way of the Flowering Knights” was founded by Dr. Joo Bang Lee in 1960, Seoul, Korea.  It is based on the philosophy and spirit of the Hwarang Knights, 1800 years ago, who unified Korea for the first time in its history.


The Martial Art of Hwa Rang Do® emphasizes the balance of mind, body, heart, and spirit to maximize the human potential so that one can live in harmony with others and nature.  It is one of the best ways to instill self-confidence so that one can overcome any challenges and live life to its fullest.

    Hwa Rang Do is the most comprehensive martial in the World. In the Two and 1/2 years that I’ve been practicing, I’ve learned grappling, stand up fighting, open hand forms as well as weapon forms, Joint manipulations, weapon fighting, and all of this is just a surface scratch of what this amazing art provides. The instructors are immensely knowledgeable, patient, and are always stirring you to make your self better, stronger, and self sufficient. You deserve to give yourself the best, and Hwa Rang Do is The Best, come join us and transform yourself into what you’ve always wanted to be.

    The most well rounded martial art school ever. Not kidding! How would you like to learn more than just how to protect yourself against the evils of the world?  Not only does this art teach you outer strength,  it teaches you inner strength also.  How to calm your mind through medication,  so that you can be better prepared for physical attcks. In all of life you need balance of "mind, body, spirit".  You're probably heard this before.  But have have you experienced it?  All of it in one school.  You can.  Everything from grappling, sparring, weapontry, meditation and even some healing techniques. This martial art is life changing in a great way! Stop by and see for yourself.

    2 years ago my son wanted to start practicing martial arts. After trying different places we decided that our search ended when we found this place. We both started practicing since then. Hwa Rang Do is more than kicking and punching, it is complete martial art that includes weapons form, and grappling from white belt. This is a great way to develop self control, self confidence and focus. I am 46 years old, practing Tae Soo Do keep my joints moving and my mind sharp. One of the best decisions I have made.
