Adeline currently teaches in our Claremont, Cannington, Dalkeith, Manning and Brentwood dojangs as well as planning and coordinating events, examining and umpiring.

Working with Children Check


Our family’s involvement with the Platinum Taekwon-Do club over the past 4 years has been extremely beneficial to my children (son & daughter) for so many reasons – increasing fitness levels, stamina, flexibility, co-ordination, focus and confidence. Through the tournaments they have not only learnt how to participate as individuals but also learnt to value each team member’s contribution.

I only have praise for Adeline and Paul. They are exemplary instructors who nurture their students, bringing out the best in each child/individual. I am very grateful that my children have such wonderful role models in their life and look forward to many more years of association with this great club.
