What it takes

Achieve your goals - Reach your potential

Learning Tae Kwon Do can be done at your own pace (however fast or slow) so that it’s best for you. HED TKD will help you to acquire the skills to the best of your own ability. It just takes a little dedication, patience and a respect for fellow students and your instructor.

Each belt level consists of a series of skills that you can master, improving and achieving the next belt. These include; improvements to your fitness, flexibility, coordination, self discipline, balance, and awareness as you gain in confidence and ability. In application you study various new TKD movements, patterns and techniques and combinations, as you increase and consolidate your knowledge of the art.

HED TKD strives to help you learn the art in a safe, fun and sensible way at a pace that suits you. Each session is delivered in a way to make it interesting and informative. Whilst you can repeat and practice techniques as often as you need to master them, no two sessions are exactly the same.

Everyone is very friendly and you will be amongst like minded people. During the class you will be guided by your instructor as you learn new and exciting skills both individually and with partners as realistic application.
