Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art,  the national sport of South Korea, and it is the most popular martial art in the world with a strong presence in the UK.

In Korean, Tae means "to strike or break with foot"; kwon means "to strike or break with fist"; and do is the "way", "method", or "path". Thus, Taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the way of the hand and the foot." The art in general emphasizes kicks thrown from a mobile stance, employing the leg's greater reach and power (compared to the arm).
 
Taekwondo is an athletic martial art characterised by a wide range of dynamic kicking techniques as well as hand strikes and demanding fitness training.
 
 
Classes are open to all. We welcome all ranges of experience, from beginners and upwards and train in both ITF and WTF styles of the art.
 
All Training Times will be posted at the start of each term on our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2202704736/ and weekly updates will follow.
