Learn Taekwon-Do with Experienced Instructors
At Burbage Taekwon-Do Academy, we offer a full range of Taekwon-Do classes for all levels from beginner to international world level from age 4yrs and above.
Taekwon-Do is a Korean martial art form founded by Grand Master General Choi Hong Hi (1918-2002). It is a modern form of self-defence which was developed from other martial arts along with scientific principles allowing techniques to have maximum power and effectiveness.
Taekwon-Do has a wide range of techniques for different situations including defending against single and multiple opponents, on foot and seated as well as against weapons. The martial art is famous for its dynamic kicking techniques which often leads to the misconception of it being a kicking martial art. However, Taekwon-Do also involves techniques of blocks, punches and strikes with the hands.
We have different training programmes for different age groups. Warriors programme is for aged 4-7years. Junior TKD for children having undergone basic TKD training.
Train from the beginning with our adult TKD programme. We also offer black belt degree level training in addition to the combat and conditioning classes at our Academy.
We offer Taekwon-Do sparring sessions and pad work classes for children and adults. If you need one-on-one instruction, sign up for our private tuition.
A sneak peek into our training sessions
Amazing martial arts instruction. I’ve never seen such a friendly MA place, that doesn’t dilute the principles and practices of Taekwon-do. The children’s group is not just fun, but an amazing workout and a super introduction to the skills needed further on. My son loves it. The tutors are fantastic and clearly love what they do as well as being highly skilled. – Evon Willmott-Bradshaw
