Note: Before Tae Kwon Do unified, KongSooDo and TangSooDo(SooBakDo) had an organization name for a short time called the Korean TaeSooDo Association. This name is no longer use by TaeKwonDo, and the meaning of this TaeSooDo is the "way of body and hands". However, the meaning of modern Tae Soo Do® is a martial art name that means the "Way of the Great Hand" or the "Way of the Warrior Spirit". The Tae Kwon Do version and Tae Soo Do® have no relation.
