The structure and objectives of the Traditional Tang Soo Do International are to place primary emphasis on training and assisting the individual schools within the organization. Policies of the organization will be designed to place individual schools first in the decision making process, especially full time schools. The Traditional Tang Soo Do International organization will financially streamline itself so that it does not place an unnecessary burden on the individual schools or interfere with their internal politics. The organization will be divided into international and national regions with regional heads in charge of primary training and Gup certification activities. Dan testing and certification will be under the auspices of the President of the Traditional Tang Soo Do International or his national designees. Organization income streams will be designed to build both the region and organization in that order. National heads will be allowed flexibility to decide how this will best be done within their region and will report to Traditional Tang Soo Do International headquarters on a yearly basis. No yearly membership at either the Dan or Gup level will be instituted to fund an organizational bureaucracy or to enrich the President of the Traditional Tang Soo Do International. Whenever possible, the organization will organize itself to make favorable business deals that will benefit the entire organization.
The Traditional Tang Soo Do International will strive to increase its national and international presence by attracting members who are interested in serious technical growth through authentic training. We are interested in people who want to distinguish themselves by helping us build our organization into one of most respected martial arts organizations in the world. We understand and accept from the beginning that we will not be the largest Tang Soo Do organization numbers wise. The Traditional Tang Soo Do International will align itself from time to time with other like minded Tang Soo Do organizations to reach its goals and/or to further the image or respectability of the Art of Tang Soo Do.
