Tang Soo Do is an ancient martial art which originated 2,000 years ago in Korea. It is a method of empty hand, foot and weapon fighting; based on the scientific use of the body in self-defense using the principles of yielding, circular motion, and penetration. Although the system has adjusted to the physical needs of modern lifestyles the techniques and philosophy are still taught as they were in ancient times. Most of all, this mysterious art is designed to develop individual character, mental strength, integrity, and respect for others.

My five year old son has been going to the martial arts program (Tang Soo Do) since 2020 and he loves it. He was very hesitant during the first few weeks of the program but Master Neal did a great job making him feel comfortable during that adjustment period. Master Neal is very patient and shares his knowledge with students so they understand the discipline and all the forms of Tang Soo Do. He challenges students and helps build their confidence. Classes are one hour long and meet twice a week.

I wholeheartedly recommend Master Neal as a Martial Arts instructor. I have been studying under his guidance for the past two years and have seen firsthand the dedication and expertise he brings to class each day. His knowledge of martial arts is extensive and he teaches multiple styles. While studying Tang Soo Do under him I have also benefited from his expertise in Tai Chi, Kung Fu and Kick Boxing among other disciplines. He can clearly and effectively teach multiple complex techniques with patience and attention to detail. I believe anyone with an interest in the Martial Arts would benefit from Master Neal’s instruction.
