In memory of Grand Master Kang Uk Lee

24th August 1936 to 18th October 2021

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Grand Master.  A true inspirational leader and legend.  A Grand Master who enriched the lives of so many Masters and students in the art of Tang Soo Do. A gift that we will treasure always.

Tang Soo Do has been his great passion and that is clear to see in the growth of the Organisation over the years, where he has now left a legacy to be proud of.

Our Tang Soo Do family will feel this loss not only in the UK, but all around the world.  May we honour his memories by carrying on his passion for Tang Soo Do.
