It is one that takes many years of training and a life time of dedication and philosophy. The journey of Tang Soo Do does not stop at Blackbelt. It goes beyond that, it's an art that will carry you for the rest of your life. Becoming a Blackbelt is not to learn how to fight, but to have self discipline, dignity, honor, and to evolve to the best version of yourself.
"Always remember that your success begins inside you: If you can't see it first, no one else ever will."
"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."
“A black belt is nothing more than a belt, a piece of cloth. Your ultimate goal should not be to get your black belt. Your ultimate goal should be to be a black belt. Being a black belt is a state of mind, a way of life.”
