Bees Creek Soo Bahk Do
"There is no 'best' martial art, but there is a martial art that is best for you." - M. Austin Sa Bom Nim
Welcome to the home of the traditional Korean martial art Soo Bahk Do in the Darwin Rural area.
Bees Creek Soo Bahk Do is a family orientated martial arts school and is part of Region 1 of the Australian Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation. The Dojang (training area) can be found in the Assembly Area Bees Creek Primary School
Soo Bahk Do is a traditional Korean martial art with a direct lineage to the founder of Moo Duk Kwan Kwan Jang Nim Hwang Kee through his son and our current Grandmaster Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang.
Bees Creek Soo Bahk Do welcomes students of all ages, ability and background. You only need the desire to improve yourself and the discipline to make it happen.
"..we study a traditional martial art; this is not a sport and there is no importance placed on being the fastest, strongest, toughest, etc. Self development is achieved at your own pace, and you are only ever challenged against your own potential." - K Wyles Sa Bom Nim, Australian T.A.C.
