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 Team GB Olympian Jade Jones!


Our first two sessions of the year will be taster sessions, primarily for those new to the club. On Tuesday 5 October, our evening session (8pm) will be an advanced taster; Sunday 10 October (3:30pm) will be a beginner taster, aimed at those new to the sport. Come along and kick things!! Sign up for a beginner taster on our picktime page.


For the beginner taster session on Sunday, we will have a walking bus going from King’s college, so don’t worry if you’ve never been to west Cambridge before. We’ll assemble in front of King’s from 14:45 and leave at 14:55.
