is founder and President of Cheezic Tang Soo Do. While stationed in the U.S. Air Force in Korea in 1959, he earned black belt #2278 in Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do from the style's founder, Hwang Kee. After returning to the United States, Grandmaster Cheezic began to share the art of Tang Soo Do with others in his Waterbury, Connecticut community. What began with one student has grown for more than 50 years into the internationally respected Cheezic Tang Soo Do Karate Federation, an organization with thousands of members worldwide.

2014 Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation Best of Our Best Awards Banquet Success!
This year's Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation Best of Our Best Awards Banquet was held on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. More than 400 guests joined us in a celebration of the Best of Our Best in Cheezic Tang Soo Do, and in honoring our heroes for a Military tribute. We are deeply grateful to Grandmaster Robert Cheezic for making it possible for us to enjoy such a special event. Special thanks to our Federation Photographer H.Robert Thiesfield for the wonderful event photos you will soon be able to view in our photo gallery.
The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and enjoying the company of our fellow Federation members and special guests was a wonderful way to begin our 2014 Cheezic Tang Soo Do year. We were also treated to a Haidong Kumdo Sword demonstration presented by ATA Grandmaster Penny Mitchell and a military self defense demonstration presented by Master Todd Deutsch and Veterans Adminstration members.
