Welcome to the Tang Sou Dao Website

Tang Sou Dao is a Chinese martial art that was founded by Grandmaster Loke, who has taught in the UK for over 40 years. Tang Sou Dao is a culmination of Chinese styles that Grandmaster Loke has studied since his youth. Grandmaster Loke is a firm believer that a martial art should not be stuck in the past, but should be innovative and organic; reflective of one’s own personal self-development. The result is a combination of sophisticated Kung Fu styles with a unique, practical and modern fighting system.

Tang Sou Dao is not about fighting, it is about protecting yourself. Tang Sou Dao incorporates practical self-defence. You will learn basic and advanced hand techniques, leg techniques, ground work, evasion and disarming principles. We also include traditional stretching methods and drill work. Training Tang Sou Dao will improve physicality in many way, including flexibility, strength, co-ordination, fitness, precision and power delivery. Because it encompasses a variety of different skills, adults of any age can start and be sure to gain something positive.

Because the skills learnt are martial, it is important to treat training seriously. Tang Sou Dao continues to adopt conventional Karate-type methods of teaching, such as the belt system. Training in this way increases focus, confidence and self-discipline. This combination of physical and mental instruction makes it an ideal skill for children to learn. Tang Sou Dao is like a family, the seniors look after the junior and the younger ones. There are many families who join together in the club, and we even have three generations training together!

There are Tang Sou Dao classes in many different areas of the UK and internationally. Look up your area and come along! Come in loose clothing and just join in.
