What is Taekwondo?

It’s a sport and an art, based on ancient Korean martial arts dating back thousands of years! Whether you’re interested in the competitive side or not, taekwondo is great exercise, a lot of fun, and a different way of getting active. And, if progression is your thing, like other martial arts there are belts and ranks to measure your development over a period of time.

What are the benefits?

  • There are different types of taekwondo designed for competition and for self-development, so you’ve always got a choice
  • It’s open to people at all levels of fitness, so you don’t need to worry if you’re not sure you’re ready for it
  • Like other martial arts, it’s as good for the mind as the body, so you’ve got lots of different benefits

What will I need?

You should check with the club what clothing they’d recommend you wear. British Taekwondo, the people who look after taekwondo nationally, recommend that you check whether the club is a current British Taekwondo member and ideally that they have Clubmark Accreditation before you try it for the first time.
