Why taekwondo?

Taekwondo will vastly improve your physical fitness (you’ll burn around 700+ calories per class), as well as increasing your self-confidence, concentration and mental discipline. You’ll meet great people and be able to enjoy the many social events that happen through the academic year. You’ll also have the chance to compete and maybe one day, earn a prestigious black belt.

Your first class is free, giving you the perfect excuse to come and try taekwondo today. Just come along with loose fitting clothes, bring a bottle of water, and learn to kick like Jade!
