Master William Ruffing

– a 6th Degree Black Belt with over 30 years experience in Tang Soo Do, Hapkido and Hwa Rang do

He has lived and trained in Korea, California, Texas, Ohio and North Carolina. His training comes from the same lineage as Chuck Norris – Tang Soo Do.

Once I had learned other traditional styles such as, Hwa Rang Do and Hap Ki Do, I knew I had to change Tang Soo Do. As a Teacher and a Father I could not teach regular Tang Soo Do to students knowing that there are more complex, comprehensive, effective styles out there.
