“Fear starts more conflicts that bravery.”
Hwang Kee Founder Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan
Karate Illustrated Jan 1982 page 85

“The reason I developed it (Tang Soo Do) was because my country needed a style to teach them discipline and respect.

It was developed to make people stronger and healthier.

People who are disciplined and strong are at peace with themselves and can be at peace with others.

Fear starts more conflicts than bravery.

Disciplined people are able to accomplish difficult tasks.”
