Train in a Supportive Atmosphere

If you are looking for a non-judgmental environment where age and ability are not barriers to achievement, this is the club for you. Our friendly instructors (male and female) use a dynamic, modern, varied programme to suit all learning styles. Students are given equal opportunity to develop their physical skills during training, feel supported and learn to encourage each other.

Sticking up for Yourself

The Bullying Awareness Programme empowers children who have lost their confidence and self-esteem. Seminars and self-defense techniques help children regain confidence and feel in control again. We will listen to your child and help them to prevent and minimize incidents - Bullying is never O.K.

Assertive with Social Skills

We develop assertive, respectful students using the Taekwondo Tenets. If you would like your child to develop their social circle alongside their body (strength; fitness; stamina; co-ordination) and mind (self-control), our social agenda includes yearly camps, beach training, fun days and training throughout the year (only 3 weeks off for Xmas). If your child is competitive, we will help them access external competitions. If not - we have friendly fun on open days.
