We practice WT-style (World Taekwondo) or Olympic style Taekwondo.

Taekwondo is the art of self-defence that originated in Korea. It is recognised as one of the oldest forms of martial arts in the world, reaching back over 2,000 years. ‘Tae’ means to break or attack with the foot, ‘Kwon’ means to break with the fist and ‘do’ translates as the art or way will be unpredictable.

Benefits of Taekwondo includes:

  • Enhance self-esteem by heightening your physical and mental powers.
  • Build confidence and take control of your life.
  • Improve flexibility, agility & reflexes.
  • Increase your strength and stamina.
  • Develop discipline by training your body and mind in the tenets and  techniques of Taekwondo.
  • Teach self-defence by recognising situations in which physical self-defence may be necessary, and learn how to control such situations to your advantage.
  • Strengthen your mind and body through increased physical coordination and mental discipline.
  • Improve leadership skills.
  • Individuals of all ages and abilities can take up Taekwondo. Beginners are always welcome!
