    2. I shall respect instructors and seniors
    3. I shall never misuse Taekwondo
    4. I shall be a champion of Freedom and justice

    Our Approach

    Our approach is about focused, committed training and encouraging students in the field of Taekwondo (TKD), self-defence & Tai Chi. Students will learn to strengthen themselves as an individual and enrich their body and mind.

     

    TKD, self-defence & Tai-Chi is suitable for all ages from 5 years and onwards.

     

    If bullying is a problem or a worry for you or for members of your family, this Martial Art will give you the confidence and skills to deal with this. If you just want the confidence and skills to protect yourself, our classes will equip you for this.

     

    TKD promotes fitness and self-defence, which are very important ingredients in life.

    TKD will also challenge you mentally and physically. Should you wish to pursue the art of TKD our classes will also train you for future competitions and coloured belts.

     

    We are interested in the complete personal development of each student.

     

    Taekwondo spreading hope & dreams to the youth of the world

    What is Taekwon-Do?

    Taekwon-Do is an international Martial art known for its dynamic flying and spinning kicks. Taekwondo comes from the korean words Tae(foot), Kwon(fist), Do(way).

     

    The fundamentals of Taekwondo are learned through a series of patterns of moves, free sparring, self-defence techniques, and two-person controlled sparring.

     

    The objective of training Taekwondo is to seek the enhancement of personal character by strengthening both mind and body, to develop self-control and endurance through hard training, and finally to acquire the tolerance and modesty that a truly strong person can show when he or she reaches an extraordinary level of Taekwondo mastery.

     

    Taekwondo is an effective modern system of self-defence and became an official sport at Sydney Olympic 2000.
