We teach a traditional ITF Taekwon-Do syllabus with modern martial art training methods. This enables our students to learn a realistic self-defence in exciting and fun classes. We are associated to the National Taekwon-Do Alliance UK who are affiliated to ITF HQ.
Taekwon-Do is an art of self-defence founded by a Korean General named Choi Hong Hi (Grand Master General Choi Hong Hi 9th Degree 1918-2002). Officially, Taekwon-Do was recognised on 11th April 1955, after exhaustive researching, developing, and experimenting. General Choi proclaimed Taekwon-Do to the world as a completely valid and unique martial art.
Taekwon-Do translated literally means:
‘Tae’ stands for kicking, jumping, flying, or smashing with the foot.
‘Kwon’ denotes the fist – chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist.
‘Do’ means the art or the way – the right way built by Saints and Sages of the past.
