Tae Kwon Do

What is Tae Kwon Do?

Tae Kwon Do as we know it today is a relatively modern form of Korean self-defence. It was formally recognised in 1955 and was brought to the UK as recently as 1967. However, Tae Kwon Do’s roots can be traced back over 2,000 years and many regard it as both an ancient martial art and a modern system of self-defence. Tae Kwon Do is now the world’s most widely practised martial art.

What are the benefits of Tae Kwon Do?

Training in Tae Kwon Do has many benefits, including self-defence, fitness, flexibility, confidence building and discipline. One of the most appealing aspects of Tae Kwon Do is that it is available to anyone regardless of age, gender or level of fitness. Whatever age you are, the positive effects of training in Tae Kwon Do will carry over into other areas of your life.

Tae Kwon Do for children

Our instructors are experienced in teaching children from the age of five and of all abilities, including children with behavioural problems. Children who acquire self confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Tae Kwon Do is arguably one of the best methods of instilling confidence into children and, at the same time, emphasising the importance of respect and discipline.
