Tang Soo Do (Hangul: 당수도) is a Korean martial art incorporating fighting principles from subak (as described in the Kwon Bup Chong Do), as well as northern
Chinese kung fu. The techniques of what is commonly known as Tang Soo Do combine elements of shotokan karate, subak, taekkyon, and kung fu.
"Tang Soo Do" (당수도) is the Korean pronunciation of the Hanja 唐手道 (pronounced Táng shǒu dào in Chinese), and translates
literally to "Chinese hand way" (the "Tang" refers to the Tang Dynasty).
