About Us

If you're looking for a unique sport that will develop not only physical fitness but also self-confidence, look no further. Tae Kwon-do consists of 3 parts; the traditional martial art, the competitive sport aspect and self-defence. We cater to both ITF and WTF styles. This enables students to draw from a wide pool of knowledge, from technical ability to sparring skills or self-defence proficiency. Karate is a striking martial art, involving kihon, kata and kumite. some styles of karate also involve grappling and takedowns. We cater to all so individuals can learn a true variety. We are a friendly group with a wide range of abilities, from complete beginners to experienced black belts.

We train as one group, incorporating a range of difficulties to suit all members. Although TKD and karate are individual sports, we work as a team to support each and every member on their individual path to self improvement.

Throughout the year there will be chances to compete and grade with help from outside instructors.


Membership: £65 for the year plus £2.50 as a high risk fee
