Frequently asked questions

Am I too young or too old?

The minimum age is 6 and there is no upper age limit to train in Tae Kwon-Do.

I’m unfit

All the more reason to join. We build beginners fitness up gradually, you’ll be surprised how much fitter you are after just six months.

I’m shy

Tae Kwon-Do builds confidence. Beginners classes are always separate to avoid students feeling intimidated by higher grades. We have many team building games that make you feel more at ease.

How long does it take to become a black belt?

It will take at least 3.5 years before you earn your black belt. There are no double gradings or any quick ways. If you can persevere for that time then you are able to take your black belt grading.

What will I need to wear?

For your first few months you can wear anything that is light and comfortable . i.e tracksuit, leggings, tshirt etc.

Do we have to pay by direct debit or sign any contracts?

No, you pay on a four weekly basis. We believe that you should enjoy your Tae Kwon-Do, not train because you have paid a six/twelve/eighteen month contract.

How much does it cost?

Please check the pricing page for up to date pricing.

I wish I had a friend to join with

How many other people say the same thing. 70% join on their own and go on to make many new friends through Tae Kwon-Do. We are not just a martial arts school, we hold many social events during the year.

My child is being bullied at school and even though the teachers have been informed he is afraid to go back

Self confidence and the ability to self achieve are major benefits of Tae Kwon-Do. We teach students not to be arrogant or to misuse Tae Kwon-Do. We teach students to be confident and respect others.

How long will the course last?

We don’t run our Schools as a series of courses. We teach on a continual basis throughout the year.

Can I join in with my children?

Yes, on the main beginners class we encourage children over the age of 6 to train with their parents.
