WELCOME TO RODRIGUEZ KARATE ACADEMY
A FAMILY THAT KICKS TOGETHER STICKS TOGETHER
I would like to introduce ourselves, my name is Carlos Rodriguez and our Tang Soo Do story began with me 21 years ago. After 16 years of training, I earned my Masters rank in 2016. I have been an instructor for 19 years of those 21 years and teaching karate is my passion. My wife, Misty Rodriguez has been training for 9 years and instructing for 9 of those 9 years. She received her black belt in 2017 and loves teaching others. We have been married for 16 years and have 3 sons Lucas, Gabriel, and Miguel; who also train with us. Lucas started training as a tiny tiger at the age of 6 and is now a blue belt. Gabriel started training as a tiny tiger at the age of 5 and is now a blue belt. Miguel started training as a tiny tiger at the age of 5 and is now a brown belt. We enjoy training together as a family and hope you will love training with us as well.

WORLD TANG SOO DO ASSOCIATION
FROM THE BIRTH OF THE WORLD TANG SOO DO ASSOCIATION TO NOW
In 1968 Master Jae Chul Shin came to the United States of America as the U. S. representative for the Korean Tang Soo Do Association. He formed the U. S. Tang Soo Do Federation in Burlington, New Jersey in 1968. This traditional Korean Martial Art was quickly accepted and soon grew in popularity throughout the World. The organization reformed to fit new demands internationally, and on November 13 and 14th, 1982, a charter convention of the World Tang Soo Do Association was held in Philadelphia, PA., USA. With the advent of the World Tang Soo Do Association, Tang Soo Do began a new era of development as a traditional martial art.
As of 1996, the new organization has grown at an outstanding rate to reach over 100,000 members in 36 countries and thousands of students are training in the following countries; Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, England, Germany, Greece, Guam, Holland, India, Italy, Korea, Mozambique, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Rumania, Russia, Scotland, Seychelles, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Uruguay and the U.S.A. For the purpose of guidance and regional management, there are 21 regions and the regional directors.
