Taekwondo Martial Art Classes

Classes for Adults Classes for children

Every class covers one or more of the three main aspects of Taekwon-Do:

  • Martial Art - The traditional forms, mechanics for stability, generating impact and economic motion.
  • Applied Martial Art - Applying the formal techniques on targets and partners (this is minimal in the children's classes).
  • Sport Taekwon-Do - A dynamic contact sport, utilising limited targets and protective gear (gloves, boots, headguard) much like kickboxing.


 

Adult Classes

If you are an adult and would like to join a martial arts class, there's a very good chance you also find the idea of actually entering such a foreign situation daunting.
Typical fears are that you are not fit enough to train, or that you may think you are too old to begin, or that there will be young brash bullies like in 80s karate movies.
These fears are unfounded. In our Taekwon-Do Dojang you are guaranteed a welcoming atmosphere and supportive partners. Hard work and safety are our maxims, and if you can walk through the door then you are neither too old nor too unfit to train.
Fitness is a result of training, you do not need to be fit to begin getting fit.
You don't need experience in martial arts to beging training in martial arts.
Every person's motivation will be unique to them, and will most likely fall somewhere on the spectrum between learning how to defend themselves against violence, and gaining fitness and an outlet to physically express themselves.
Taekwon-Do training provides us with all these benefits and more, and if you are reading this then you should try it for yourself.

Adults Classes run from 8pm to 9.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays

Childrens Classes

Martial arts can be of tremendous benefit to children of all ages. Cordination, balance, flexibility, strength and physical confidence can all be imporved through the study of Taekwon-Do.
The central tenets of Taekwon-Do: Courtsey, Integrity, Pererverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit, are explained to even our youngest members, and behaviour in accordance with these principals is constantly encouraged.

Children aged from 5 to 9 can join the Tuesday / Thursday class at 6pm
Children aged between 10 and 16 can join a class on Monday, Tuesday or Friday at 7pm.
Children from 15 years are also welcome in the adult class.
