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
Each year, the Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation holds an event to honor the Federation competitors who placed in 1st through 4th place in their divisions during the four Federation Challenge Tournaments held throughout the previous year. This year we will honor competitors of 2013, as well as Student of the Year Nominees, and other special awards including School of the Year. All Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation members and their families and friends are invited to join us at this event. It will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2014 from 12-5pm at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. A general invitation can be downloaded from this website.
In addition to the awards presented at this annual Federation event, we present demonstrations and/or speakers in honor of a specific theme. This year's theme is Honoring our Heroes: A Military Tribute. We will honor our students and their relatives who serve or have served in the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, and Marines. Each Federation dojang is asked to send an email to email@example.com with a list of students and their family members who serve or have served in the military. Please include their complete names and branches of service in which they served and forward that information as soon as possible so that we may properly prepare to honor them at this event. Dojangs are also asked to prepare a poster (30x40") with photos and information honoring the heroes of your schools. All of this information was previously sent to CTSD Dojang Instructors to pass along and discuss with your students. Please spread the word. We look forward to enjoying a beautiful venue, delicious food, entertainment and more with our entire Cheezic Tang Soo Do family.
