Taekwondo

Description

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with an emphasis on flexibility and kicks. We teach traditional Taekwondo as well as street self-defence against a variety of techniques (including knife attacks), fitness, Olympic-style sparring, and much more. There is an optional grading test at the end of every term, allowing you to progress through the belt system. You could be approaching black belt by graduation!

 

Joining Taekwondo is a great opportunity and a relaxed environment to build self-confidence, get in shape, learn how to defend yourself and meet new friends. We have regular socials such as meals, cinema trips and the legendary 'Drink Your Belt' night out.

 

No prior martial arts experience is needed - we actively encourage complete beginners to join! We have sessions led every Wednesday evening by professional instructor, 7th degree black belt Eddie Ellison and self defence expert Steven Baker (7th Dan in Karate and Jiu Jitsu), as well as exec-run sessions on: Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons to complement these.

 

 

Training Times:

Wednesday 8pm-10pm (George Fox Foyer - with: Eddie Ellison 7th Dan; self defence expert Steven Baker; Sam Ellison 4th Dan and 1st Dan in kickboxing)

Sunday 2pm-4pm (George Fox Foyer - FREE Student/Exec run session)

 

 

Please wear clothes you would feel comfortable exercising normally in, as we will be doing a lot of leg stretching and kicking - however, you can also buy a dobok (uniform) from Eddie at student price.
