New (temporary) Venue

classWe have started classes back in a limited capacity. Due to Covid restrictions our usual two halls are not open so all classes have relocated to St James Church hall.

We have had to cut the number of classes and spaces in order to be Covid-Secure.

Because of these changes and the limited space we are unable to take new students at the moment but get in touch to get on the waiting list for when things open up a bit.

Online classes

50 students in the first class

As we look to adapt to the lockdown caused by the Coronavirus outbreak we have added online classes to services. Students can access classes every week via video conferencing as well as 1-2-1 private lessons and video tutorials.

Classes suspended COVID-19

I’m sorry to say that all classes are now suspended due to school closures. Classes will be closed until the end of March, then there is the Easter break. Hopefully we will be able to resume after Easter but if we can not students will be contacted about training options. Thanks for your support in these difficult times.

Spaces for 4-6 year olds

kids classWe have a few spaces for 4-6 year olds on

  • Mondays 4pm
  • Tuesdays 4.30pm
  • Wednesdays 4.30pm
  • Thursdays 4pm

The children learn how to deal with bullies, balance and coordination, basic Taekwon-Do techniques in a fun, disciplined environment.

We run a 4 week trial, which costs £30, to see if the classes are a good fit for the child.

Spaces are limited as we like to keep class sizes small so get in touch to book your space.
