What do you do in class?
Our Taekwondo classes offer a wide variety of aspects and our sessions offer a different workout week to week. Generally they include all the traditional aspects of Taekwondo - self-defense, patterns, semi-contact sparring and fitness work of pad and bag training.
Do I need to be fit to do Taekwondo?
Not necessarily, in fact a lot of people actually join Taekwondo to get fit! In parts, fitness does help but the Instructor know that everyone is different and always try to ensure students push themselves where they can in attempt to attain higher and better personal levels and goals.
