Welcome to Master Brown's Karate school.
Soo Bahk Do
is a Martial Art known as a system of self-defense. Through learning its combat-oriented movements,
one achieves a high level of mental, spiritual and physical conditioning. This type of exercise helps you to focus your mental,
physical and spiritual energy while toning your whole body. Soo Bahk Do draws over 2,000 years of Martial Arts history with origins
in Korea. We claim over 50,000 Dans (black belt members known for the unique dark blue color of their belts). Founded by Grandmaster
Hwang Kee, of Seoul Korea in 1945, Soo Bahk Do is a combination of both hard and soft styles, combing emphasis on dynamic Korean
Kicking techniques for hardness and Oriental hand techniques for its softness and self-defense applications. This blending gives
Soo Bahk Do the perfect balance which enables it to be known and respected throughout the world as one of the most effective
methods of unarmed self-defense known to man.
Soo Bahk Do Is For Everyone
There has never been a better time to begin training the art of Soo Bahk Do. Whether you want to protect
yourself, your loved ones, improve your physical health or explore the discipline and philosophy of a traditional martial art, our
certified instructors will help you reach your personal goals. Men, Women and children of all ages benefit from training because
there is no competition among classmates. Your personal goals are "Set and Met" without being compared to other practitioners and
you do not have to "beat" anyone to achieve your personal growth.
Grandmaster Hwang Kee was quoted as saying “Man is at his best when helping others, at his worst when bettering others." We are
proud to say that we offer men and women instructors as well as children Dan (Black Belt) members who have passed internationally
standardized physical and written tests that will assist you in setting and achieving your martial arts goals.
