The UKTC is a non profit making organisation dedicated to promoting the art and sport of Taekwon-Do in the UK.
Taekwon-Do literally means Foot (Tae) Hand (Kwon) Art (Do) – the Art of Hand and Foot fighting. Taekwon-Do is a Korean martial art and can be described as the scientific use of the body for self-defense.
Life can be challenging. There are many negative influences that can be encountered as both a youth and an adult. Taekwon-Do is a way to live your life, aspiring to maintain or improve your health and live life in a positive manner.
The health benefits and social benefits of being part of a group of people who want to live in a courteous, respectful, positive and supportive way makes the Taekwon-Do student a better and stronger person.
The core values offered by Taekwon-Do will help all to strive to be the Master of their own destiny. As a self-defense art, Taekwon-Do will help prepare every member with essential skills for self-protection and for the protection of family and friends.
Children who acquire self-confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions.
Taekwon-Do is one of the best ways of instilling confidence into children whilst also emphasizing the importance of respect and discipline. Our classes for children under the supervision of fully qualified Instructors will encourage each child to achieve his/her potential, learning new skills and making new friends.
