HX Taekwon-Do is a dedicated martial arts facility in Harolds Cross, Dublin. We are members of the Irish National Taekwon-Do association, and the International Taekwon-Do Federation.
Classes in the traditional martial art and dynamic combat sport are available every weekday, for both adults and children.

Martial Arts in South Dublin, Taekwondo

New classes for 5-8 year olds.

Starting from Tuesday the 17th of September we will have new classes dedicated to instructing 5 to 8 year olds. The new time will, hopefully, better suit the evening schedules for our younger members and their parents, and also allow the older kids class to run more smoothly.
Our current members in that age bracket can continue attending their regular classes, or switch to the new times if it suits.

If you have a child aged between 5 and 8 and would like them to begin training in our martial art, please contact me through the inquiry form to the right ->
or on 0872474488 (Stuart).

Timetable and fees can be found here.

His last MMA fight was over in short order, with MR.Dargan scoring a 1st round knockout. More of the same to come, hopefully...

Success via dedication

I'm a little late, as usual, with this one.
Our last grading saw Mark and Aoife promoted to red belt. Both of these guys started Taekwon-Do here in this dojang three years ago, and this is the result of the continuous and dedicated work they have put in since the beginning.

If you commit to working hard, and you persevere, you will get better, and your achievement will be recognised. This is the whole point of the belt system, and students like this validate the system when they show their quality.

We are now looking at the INTA winter black belt grading 2014, and I have no doubt that they will both impress.

online.

Meet the new site, same as the old site.
The website is back online, as you can see, it has had a facelift and it should be more secure now, but essentialy its the same site. I do plan to add a couple of more features; a better video gallery, an 'about Taekwon-Do' page and a technical blog I've started working on, but the time I can give to this is limited so we'll wait and see.

This site was hacked and broken three weeks ago, and even though I had most of it backed up, the security upgrade and redesign had to be done in between millions of other little jobs.

If the object of the attack was to help encourage the use of newer and better web technology, then it was successful. However, it is more likely that this was the result of someone spending his time searching the web for something he can break, a great example of why both children and adults need to find a positive, healthy and productive use of their time.
