Tae Kwon-Do

Taekwon-do is a dynamic and spectacular martial art known for its incredible techniques and explosive speed, and if you’re looking for a way to develop your speed, fitness, and flexibility this is the martial art for you!

Taekwon-do is a Korean martial art that came to the form now known across the world in the mid twentieth century when pioneering Masters travelled the world to spread the art. Taking some of it’s background from ancient Korean Martial Arts such as Soo Bak Gi and Tae Kyon, as well as Karate, Taekwon-do differentiates itself by it’s range of kicking techniques. After being recognised as a martial art in 1955, Taekwon-do arrived in the UK in 1967 when Grandmaster Rhee, Ki Ha set up his school in Coventry.

The power of the style of Taekwon-do makes it ideal for Self Defence, but it’s more than that our broad syllabus combines the traditional techniques and forms with the “sport” element.
Like most more traditional martial arts, Taekwon-do is built upon the principles of respect, courtesy, integrity and discipline.
Training in Taekwon-do can start at any age.  We accept students from as young as 4.5 yrs and at the academy we are proud to have members who are in their 60’s! Because of its high-kicking, fast-paced style Taekwon-do is a thoroughly modern way of getting fit.
