Taekwon-do is a Martial art originating in Korea, that translates to the "Use of foot, use of hand and way of life". Learning Taekwon-do will enable you to develop as an individual through pattern work, sparring, breaking, self - defence and philosophical teachings, as it greatly improves your general health, strength, flexibility, control, and self confidence in everyday life.
Our current club is led by Mr Mark Worsely, an experienced second degree black belt. We are an eclectic mix of beginners, intermediates, and regular black belts and as an inclusive club, we welcome all levels of experience to come join us for training.
As a university sports club we compete in various competitions in the United Kingdom, ranging from regional and national competitions to world championships. We are extremely proud to have won the GTUK University Championship 2015 and were recognised by the DSU by winning the 'Sporting Performance of the year 2016' award. We then continued to win Unichamps 2017 by a massive margin, place 2nd in the BUTL South League and knockout cup and get awarded 'Non-BUCS Team of the Year' for 2018 at the DMU Sports Awards! We have since won Unichamps in both 2018 and 2019, making 3 years in a row!
We are a friendly bunch of people who go on various socials including nights out, Go-Karting and Paintballing to name a few. Being a member of our club gives you the opportunity to meet new people and to have an incredible experience that will enrich your time at University.
