Taekwondo

Taekwondo, a Korean martial art renowned for its kicking, means “the way of the foot and fist”. We are an active, diverse and supportive club catering to everyone from beginners to black belts. The club focuses on WTF (Olympic style) Taekwondo but accommodates ITF and other styles too. Our yearly activities include competitions in sparring and patterns, grading every term, demonstration performances, seminars, fundraising and socials. In training, we work on fitness and flexibility, drill on kick pads, practise traditional patterns, combat-style sparring and self-defence.

When you join our club, you are joining a community, not just a sport – make new friends and have fun with us! Everyone’s first two sessions are free, so join us to get stronger, faster and fitter whilst learning an Olympic sport.
