The entry notes the first known English-language use of the term came in a 1957 issue of Pacific Stars & Stripes (Tokyo) which also identified tang soo do as a form of karate. But Stars & Stripes incorrectly attributed tang soo do's origin to 17th century Korea while it's actually a 20th century innovation. The recent changes to the dictionary additionally include a revision for the "taekwondo" entry with an updated etymology.
