Traditional Forms

As a traditional martial arts, part of Tang Soo Do involves learning sets of movements called forms. These forms require both focus and discipline to master.

All children are taught forms as part of their training at Sawyer's Martial Arts, even in our young age groups. Older and upper level students learn to present their forms by them self in front of their peers. Our teaching methods encourage practice, increase confidence, technique and memory development.

Students of all levels regularly practice the art of sparring. This controlled contact fighting reinforces proper technique and develops fast thinking, endurance, strength and discipline. Sparring exercises the mind as much as the body. Proper planning, movement, timing, and execution are required to succeed as students progress to higher levels.

Board Breaking

Breaking, usually with wood or re-breakable plastic boards, is used to release energy and focus into controlled strikes. Children learn to break through objects, learning that mental preparation is equally as important as physical.
