Our syllabus

As you become a member of the Central Northants Traditional Tang Soo Do Association (CNTTSDA) you have the opportunity to practise a classic martial art and contribute towards the running of your Association.

Althrough we practise various aspects of martial arts, there are several topics that are taught as part of our set syllabus.

Hyungs (Forms)

More commonly known as form, hyungs are set patterns of techniques. These are specifically designed to help you practise stances, techniques, in their purest form and develop power and speed. Hyungs are practised as inspiration for Martial Artist's to strive for perfection.

Il Soo Sik (One Step Sparring)

One step sparring plays a cruical roll in Tang Soo Do. Rather than free flowing sparring, one steps are designed to teach sequences of moves to defend against an on coming attack. They also teach good form, stances and foot positioning.

Ho Sin Sol (Self Defence)

You can't be too careful in this day and age. We teach basic and advance self defence techniques. These are designed to be simple, and with practise will work for anyone. The Ho Sin Sol syllabus is taught as wrist grabs. These are techniques that can be modifed and changed for various situations.


Currently in Tang Soo So, we practise Hyungs with Bo Staff (Bong), Knife, and Sword. Many of our traditional forms were originally base upon these weapons. Particularly the Bo Staff.

Moo Pahl Dan Khum

In Tang Soo Do we promote good health. Therefore we practise a set of 8 breathing exercises.

Terminology and Etiquette

All Tang Soo Do practitioners are expected to understand and partake in good etiquette and manners, and show respect at all times to the Instructors, Senior grades, fellow students and the place where you train. You are also expect to learn the basic korean commands and names of techniques.
