About Our Club
Want to increase your fitness, improve your confidence, or just pick up some self-defence skills? Then Taekwondo could be the sport for you.
Taekwondo literally means “The Art Of Hand And Foot” but it is much more than that. To put it simply Taekwondo is a version of unarmed combat design for the purpose of self defence. It is the scientific use of the body in the method of self defence, a body that has gained the ultimate use of its facilities through intensive physical and mental training.
It is a martial art that has no equal in either power or technique. As Taekwondo is a complete martial art the discipline of the art must go hand and hand with learning the physical advantages of doing such a powerful art, this is why the first lesson that the students learn are the five tennents of Taekwondo which are :- Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control and Indomitable Spirt.
