What is Taekwon-Do?
ITF Taekwon-Do is the martial art of self defence. As well as being an effective method for protecting yourself, it also has other benefits such as improving your physical fitness, discipline – and simply having fun. ITF Taekwon-Do is safe and easy for all ages, male and female. We have separate classes for adults and children.

Why have a beginners’ course?
Sometimes people feel a little uncomfortable turning up to a martial arts school, even though they may have wanted to try something like this for a long time. This beginners course will give you a chance to try it out with other beginners, at any easy pace, before deciding if you want to continue.

What we cover at the course

  • Warm up and Stretching
  • Basic stances
  • Basic techniques (front punch, forearm low block, basic kicks)
  • Pad work (kicking and punching pads with the techniques we learn)
  • Breaking (for those that want to, we try a simple board break)
  • Close combat (what to do if someone grabs you)
  • Theory (a little bit about the history of Taekwon-Do)

  • Comfortable clothing (no shoes needed)
