Grandmaster Cheezic

is the 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. To learn more about our Grandmaster and his Tang Soo Do journey, visit his biography.

Our Philosophy

The Cheezic Tang Soo Do Karate Federation promotes the education of men, women and children in the traditional Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do. Founded by Grandmaster Robert A. Cheezic, the Federation is the governing body for its international roster of member schools. One of the oldest, most respected martial arts organizations in the United States, Cheezic Tang Soo Do is comprised of world-class martial artists from beginner to master level, all certified by the Grandmaster himself. Our goal is to teach self-respect and respect for others through the study and practice of Tang Soo Do. The ideas of respect and tradition are pervasive in all of our activities and for all students at every level of achievement.

Respecting Our History: Where it all began

The photo below represents Grandmaster Robert Cheezic (seated with certificate in hand) as he was presented with his 1st Dan Black Belt papers by Grandmaster Hwang Kee, the Founder of Tang Soo Do. This October 1960 photo, taken in Korea, also includes Grandmaster Cheezic's personal Instructor, Jae Chul Shin (standing 2nd from the right in the back row). One month after this photo was taken, Grandmaster Cheezic returned to Waterbury, Connecticut where he began teaching Tang Soo Do.
