Thank you for checking out the UW-Eau Claire Hwa Rang Do - Tae Soo Do club! Hwa Rang Do is a traditional and comprehensive Korean martial art, and Tae Soo Do is the introductory style of Hwa Rang Do. The club is a branch of the World Hwa Rang Do Association and is one of the longest running collegiate branches. First started in 1994, it is also the second longest running facility for Hwa Rang Do in the Midwest.
What is Hwa Rang Do? Hwa Rang Do is a comprehensive martial arts program. Rather than limiting ourselves to only one area of study, Hwa Rang Do allows the student to train in several programs. From standard kick-punch fighting to joint manipulations, throws, and a number of weapons, to a point sparring program, a grappling program, and a weapon fighting program, Hwa Rang Do has it all.
Hwa Rang Do can trace its martial tradition back 2000 years to the Silla Dynasty in Korea, while its structured martial art program has been around since 1960. The main focus of our training is in personal excellence and growth on all levels.
