"...to go with him to Tang Sou Dao classes run on weekday evenings at a local school. This seemed to answer my problems as Tang Sou Dao is obviously very physical but requires great concentration and focus. The full name of the discipline is Ren Yi Wu Kwan Tang Sou Dao and it was founded by Grandmaster M.K. Loke to take forward the development of martial art into the twenty-first century.

A great practical martial art!

Excellent choice

AdvantagesPractical martial art, for both fitness and self-defence

DisadvantagesAs any other modern martial art, cannot have everything !

"...to have a go in Tang Sou Dao. It is a very "practical" martial art, as it combines efficiently kicks and punches, as well as throws and grabs. It emphasizes the "sport" side of the art, but without losing the essence of what any martial art must have - that spirituality characteristic of ancient arts. ..." Read review
