TAE KWON DO REGULAR TRAINING is conducted in the same way it has been traditionally done for hundreds of years, and is an effective self defence systems of strikes, blocks and grappling attacks and counter moves.  Our classes also have a component with a strong focus on modern kicking and non contact sparring using an exciting range of techniques as seen in the Olympic Games.


TAE KWON DO PATTERNS involve a series of slow motion movements of the hands and feet done in different stationary or slowly changing stances.  The movements are designed to develop strong traditional techniques, stretch and strengthen the entire body, sharpen the concentration and way of thinking, calm the mind and control the emotions, and develop a strong spirit.  Pattern demonstrations are also used during grading promotions.


SEPARATE SELF DEFENCE CLASSES involve a powerful combination of boxing, weapons and self defence.  Our classes focus on personal development and survival skills, with a big emphasis on traditional training methods, and both armed and unarmed self defence techniques taught in a safe environment.


What to wear:

Please have clean feet and short clean toenails at training.  You can wear something loose fitting and casual as a beginner.
