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.
