Patterns (Poomsae)

Poomsae, also known as patterns, are a set of predetermined sequences of movements that embody the fundamental techniques of Taekwondo, including various stances, blocks, strikes, and kicks. 

Practicing Poomsae sharpens core strength, improves balance, and hones the ability to execute movements with precision. They also play a crucial role in Taekwondo gradings, as proficiency in Poomsae is required to advance to higher belt levels

Our club is highly competitive and dedicated to excellence. We have achieved great success in recent competitions, including a 1st Place overall trophy at the prestigious British National Championships 2022. We are proud to have produced numerous national champions and medalists, demonstrating the high level of skill and dedication of our members.

Sparring (Kyourigi)

Kyourigi, also referred to as Sports Taekwondo, is a vital aspect of Taekwondo, with a specific emphasis on training for competitions. It is characterized by its impressive high and spinning kicks, and sparring places a premium on speed, agility, and strength. Kyourigi is the sport side of Taekwondo that allows practitioners to put into practice the techniques they have learned in a competitive environment.
