Welcome to Leicester TSD!

Traditional Martial Arts for the Community

What is Tang Soo Do?


Tang Soo Do is a traditional Korean Karate. Our classes teach self-defence alongside the key principles of traditional martial arts. Leicester Tang Soo Do is a friendly community of martial artists of all ages and abilities practising traditional martial arts in an inspiring environment! We train hard together and support each other to become the best version of ourselves; improving confidence, fitness and wellbeing along the way!

Why try Tang Soo Do?

In today’s hectic society, there is no doubt that we need self-defence skills. Equally important are physical fitness and releasing daily stress. No matter whether you are seeking self-defence, better health, improved wellbeing, physical fitness or discipline, Tang Soo Do can meet your needs. However, Tang Soo Do has its own unique character which differentiates it from many other martial arts.

The real value of Tang Soo Do is not the belt you earn, but the changes that occur within you, in your quest for them. These changes include the betterment of your mind and body, character development and respect for others. The true goal of Tang Soo Do training is to use the lessons you learn in the training hall to enrich every part of your life.
