COVID-19 NOTICE – 10.45am 19/03/2020


Due to school closures all Taekwon-Do classes are suspended for the foreseeable future with immediate effect.

Whilst we cannot physically train together, we would encourage you to take this opportunity to access the student resources on to learn your theory and practice your patterns. If you have any questions whilst studying feel welcome to message the instructors.

We also plan to publish regular activities for you to focus on whilst at home, so please keep checking the website.

When this is all over and we are back training together we will find ways to make up for lost time.

We have a great Taekwon-do family so lets stick together and support each other to get through these unprecedented times.

Be safe and stay strong. See you all soon.
