The Traditional Karate Club of Cascade (Originally known as Cascade Karate Club) has been training students in martial arts   for over 10 years.

Tang Soo Do is a traditional martial art based on discipline and respect for all life.   Tang Soo Do is very much a personal art and we focus on encouraging personal growth instead of comparisons between students.

We continue to respects the original term, Tang Soo Do, and intend to preserve its heritage and value as a traditional way or path.  As  martial art practitioners, we are striving to maintain traditional values of respect, discipline, self-control, self-improvement, etiquette and ultimately to live a healthy and harmonious life, both physically and mentally.

Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursday nights.  Classes for young students (4 year olds) and those wishing private lessons are held by appointment.

 You are welcome to come visit a class anytime.
