The Dojang (training hall) attracts children of all ages from all walks of life. The association takes children from the age of 4 to 6 years old at the Little Tigers session, and 7 to 15 years old at the Junior session. At 15, the child would be expected to attend the adult Taekwondo sessions, studying Taekwondo in much more detail.  

Not every child is suited to Taekwondo within the Dojang, so initially, we allow the child a four-week trial period to see whether he or she will be suitable for serious Taekwondo practice. Additionally, within this initial period, the child can see whether he or she wishes to continue their practice on a regular basis.  

The Dojang is fun, safe and enjoyable. Children will learn quickly, within a group learning environment, and meet new friends.

Educational issues linked to the associations Taekwondo development programme have proved highly successful over recent years, and have produced some fine children Taekwondoians (those that practice Taekwondo) from all ages and of both genders. GCSE qualifications can also be achieved in WTF Taekwondo given that it is an Olympic sport, and the association has had some impressive results in this area from some of our teenage  members over the years that have chosen it for their specialist studies. 

Parents have often said that Taekwondo, which has a specific educational link to it, improves children no end. Of course, Taekwondo, self-defence and fitness are the key components to our style of Taekwondo, and we try to promote Self-Control, Modesty, Etiquette, Perseverance, and an Indomitable Spirit.

Our club has been in existence since 1985, and is considered to be one of the leading, well-established schools of Taekwondo for children available in South East Kent today. It has a modern approach. All coaches are keen and hand picked by Master Fowler .

 You are certainly in safe hands…..And we are second to none!

ALL OUR COACHES & OFFICERS HAVE HAD ENHANCED CRIMINAL RECORDS BUREAUX CHECKS IN LINE WITH CURRENT LEGISLATION.
