Beginners

Congratulations On Finding Us!

Our Site Has Been Devised To Both Attract New Members And Act As A Learning Resource For Existing. Despite The Large Amount Of Information You Will Find Here, You Will Probably Still Have A Few Personal Questions For Me And So Please Feel Free To Contact Me. I Do Not Wish To Lose The Personal Touch That Is Sadly Disappearing From Many Other Companies.

You May Never Have Thought About Martial Arts Training Before Or Think That It’s Not For You. I Hadn’t When I Began Training. Most People Think Of Going To The Gym, Swimming, Running, Etc. When They Wish To Improve Their Physical Well Being.

Tae Kwon-Do Is For Everyone. Classes Are Varied And Fun. You Are Only In Competition With Yourself. It Is Non-Contact And So You Will Not Get Hurt. You Always Have Something To Aim For And Are Rewarded Respectively.

Aside From The Physical Benefits, Emotional Well Being Is Also Developed. Many Of Our Adults Find It A Great Stress Buster And Enjoy The Physical And Emotional Challenges.

Children Benefit Greatly From Improved Concentration At School, Increased Confidence, Improved Discipline And So Much More.

No Previous Knowledge Is Required. No Particular Fitness Levels Are Required, ‘Couch Potatoes’ Are Welcome To Join. It Amazes Me At How Many People Think That They Need To Be Fit To Start Training. You Do Not! That’s The Idea Of Starting. The Syllabus Is Designed To Phase You In Gradually And So As The Difficulty Level Of Your Techniques Increases So Do Your Fitness Levels.

Should You Already Be ‘Fit,’ We Can Get You Fitter! Training Is All About Self Improvement, It’s Up To You How Hard You Push Yourselves. Training Is A Classic Example Of ‘You Only Get Out What You Put In.’

I Am Very Proud Of All Of Our Members And Consider Myself Very Privileged In Having Such A Friendly, Supportive And Dedicated School. We Have Over 60 Students Ranging From Age 4 To 64! We Have People From All Sorts Of Professions Such As Home Makers, Teachers, Nurses, Accountants, Manual And Clerical Workers. Some People Are Very Agile And Have An Excellent Physical Ability And Others Have Slight Disabilities And So Work To The Best Of Their Ability And As Long As They Strive To Be The Best That They Can, Are Regularly Promoted.

I Would Much Rather Teach Someone Who Was A Little Less Technically Able Who Tried Hard, Than I Would Someone Who Was Extremely Technically Talented Although Who Had An Attitude Problem!

Our Classes Are Formal, As We Are Participating In A Military Martial Art, They Need To Be. I Personally Like To Specialise In Good Discipline And Traditional Tae Kwon-Do. I Take My Duty Very Seriously And Will Push You To Achieve Your Personal Targets, I Will Criticise You Where Necessary But Most Importantly, I Will Praise You And We Have Numerous Reward Programmes In Place.

The Children’s Class Runs In A Similar Manner To The Adult’s Although With A Few Extra Games. The Beginners Class Is At A Slightly Slower Tempo And The Most Informative Lesson. The Intermediate And Advanced Classes Are At A Higher Tempo And Are Both Technically And Physically More Demanding.

Beginners Are Always Welcome To Join Any Of Our Classes, Not Just The Beginners Class. For Your First Few Lessons, Or Until You Feel Comfortable, You Will Work Either On Your Own Or In A Small Group With Either Myself Or An Assistant Away From The Main Class. This Enables You To Learn Some Basics And Gain Confidence Without The Pressure Of Being In The Main Class.

Aside Form Our Training We Regularly Hold Fund-Raising And Social Events That Are Great Fun.
