Our Brighton and Hove Taekwon-Do class teaches traditional ITF Taekwon-Do to men, women and children from 12 years old.
Taekwon-Do is the art of self-defence that originated in Korea. In Korean, Tae means “to strike or break with foot”; Kwon means “to strike or break with fist”; and Do means way, method, or path. So, Taekwon-Do can be translated as “the way of the hand and the foot’.
Taekwon-Do has become one of the world's most popular martial arts. There are two main bodies for international Taekwon-Do. One is more focused on the sports element of Taekwon-Do – you may have seen this at the summer Olympic Games – the other is the more traditional form of the martial art, which centres on using a variety of techniques for self-defence.
As a traditional martial arts club, we combine hand and foot techniques such as punches and kicks, self-defence, sport and exercise, to increase your confidence, your strength and your fitness.
Sussex Taekwon-Do is affiliated with the International Taekwon-Do Federation and the United Kingdom Taekwon-Do Association, which are the original founding bodies for Taekwon-do, both internationally and the UK.
By doing Taekwon-Do, you will improve your body and mind, increasing confidence, fitness, and strength.
All our instructors are DBS checked.
