At Eagledove Martial Arts, we teach traditional Tang Soo Do to adults and children. We are family-run, and our flexible family-friendly programs allow our students to fit their training into otherwise busy lives. All of our instructors and ranks are certified by the International Tang Soo Do Federation. We also offer classes in Qi Gong (a close relative to Tai Chi), a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training.
We have enacted measures to allow our students to train as safely as possible while everyone deals with the reality of COVID-19. In order to provide the safest possible class environment for our students and instructors, WE ARE MOVING TO AN OUTDOORS LOCATION for the Spring and Summer 2021 Sessions! Classes will be held at the Overlook Neighborhood Soccer Fields (4550 Andrew James Dr., Charlotte NC 28216). Students are spaced at least ten feet apart from each other for the majority of class. Face coverings are required for any activities which require students to directly interact with each other.
Tang Soo Do originated approximately 2,000 years ago on the Korean peninsula. It is sometimes referred to as "Korean Karate", and it's "hard" kicking and striking skills are the basis for the sport known as Taekwondo. Tang Soo Do also incorporates the "soft" self-defense techniques of escapes and joint locks that are often seen in martial arts such as Hapkido and Aikido. The equal emphasis on "hard" and "soft" techniques makes Tang Soo Do practitioners into extremely well-balanced martial artists. This balance is also emphasized by our name, Eagledove Martial Arts. As the dove, we strive for peaceful solutions; as the eagle, we have the strength to fight for justice.
