Our Teaching

Embrace Change

In the later part of the 19th century a Master of Karate in Okinawa brought together sequences of blocks, strikes, grabs and throws from forms born out of ancient Chinese martial arts. These became what is known today, in many styles by different names, as the Pyung Ahn Hyungs.
Pyung Ahn is more than a series of moves and forms, it is a philosophy on how to live life and greet nature. It has been said that to understand and incorporate Pyung Ahn in your life is to develop a sense of deep inner peacefulness and confidence in oneself.
We instruct our students in the philosophy and physical teaching of Pyung Ahn as they were handed down to us by Grand Master Hwang Kee, the founder of Tang Soo Do (*Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan ®) Master Keith Bennett trained under the original Kwan Jang Nim Hwang Kee and his successor Kwan Jang Nim H.C Hwang. We hold true to the important philosophies of KJN Hwang Kee. His vision of peaceful brotherhood throughout the world obtained through the dedication, self sacrifice and practice of Martial Arts is our vision.
We do not train for sport, we train to improve ourselves, to help others improve and we commit ourselves to our community to help improve the world around us. We encourage you to join with us and help strengthen the foundation upon which we can build a better future for all.
To learn more about our teachings and our programs, we invite you to visit the school and experience the new Keith Bennett's Karate Academy.

Success Stories

Definitely not too old

When I took my first lesson at the school, I was simply doing it to prove to myself and Master Bennett that I was too old (52 years old) and disabled to embark in a new and physically- demanding discipline. Here I stand (emphasis mine); five months later and fourteen pounds lighter, ready to take on the world! thank you Master Bennet and each of the instructors from the bottom of my heart.

Outstanding Life Lessons

I started training with Keith in January of 2012. Right from the start Master Bennet, Mr. Scoffield, Mr. Sills, Mr. Rafter, Ms. Rafter and all the other Dan members made me feel right t at home. They made me feel like a member of their Tang Soo Do family. The Dan members I have been working with fantastic, they have high expectations but, at the same time understand the beginner. 

Master Bennett and his staff treat Tang Soo Do (Pyung Ahn) as an education of the heart, mind,and body, as it truly is. I enjoy the hard work, the challenge that I have been presented with and the expectations that Master Bennett has.

Master Bennett and his staff certainly live the life and I have nothing but the ultimate respect for all that are involved with Master Bennett, as well as himself.
Thank you for the time and effort you guys have made in me! Thank you for accepting me into your family. Thank you for treating me as one of your own.

God willing I hope to have many years of training with you!

Easy to learn, easy to retain

I just want to say thank you for opening your doors and hosting a great class yesterday. I definitely learned a lot from you in a short period of time. Quite possibly the best class I've ever taken. Once again thank you!
