The Dal Poon Academy is part of the European Tang Soo Do Federation headed by Master Suresh Nar (7th Degree Master Belt). The European Tang Soo Do Federation is affiliated to Grand Master Ki Yun Yi’s International Martial Arts Association (IMA) and is devoted to the study of Tang Soo Do which has roots dating back over 2000 years and teaches realistic self-defence techniques.

 Master Young, our Head Instructor, is keen to maintain a family orientated Academy and supports and develops the Academy’s instructors. There are classes in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Durham and Finland. Tang Soo Do is suitable for all ages and abilities and teaches not only self-defence, but many life skills as well as being an excellent form of exercise to develop physical fitness, confidence, concentration and leadership. All of our instructors are endorsed by the IMA and Master Nar, have public liability insurance, are first aid certified and have an Enhances DBS (all available upon request) to ensure the safety of the students they teach.
