Teaching Tang Soo Do Karate since 1997

While we offer many types of martial arts programs, our primary focus of Tang Soo Do Karate guides everything we do. Founded by the late and beloved Master Michael DiPietro in 1997, we’ve been enhancing the lives of countless kids and adults through the principles of this traditional form of Korean karate. Today, Master DiPietro’s undying commitment to caring and quality instruction lives on. So, we invite you to come join the super supportive and awesome community here at East Coast Karate Institute!
