We are mixed club and are open to all UWE/UoB students, alumni, students from other establishments (age 15yrs+) and non-students.

The style of Taekwondo we teach develops concentration, speed, power, strength, accuracy, balance and coordination. In its purest form, the essence of training is “Mind over Body” seeking deeper than just acquiring physical strength and skills. This program strives to improve the individual through self-discipline, self-control, self-confidence, patience, humility, respect and perseverance. At the same time, it is an excellent way to stay in condition since practicing utilizes every single muscle in the body.
Here at SKY Taekwondo, we teach “Traditional Taekwondo’ utilizing modern teaching methods and strategies”. What this means is that while we focus on developing the concepts of mutual respect, courtesy, integrity and self-control, we do not ignore developments in modern physical and “practical” training, expanding our Martial Arts knowledge in general.
This Program is for everyone as no matter what your level of fitness, your age or experience you are able to work at your own pace in a friendly but dedicated environment. We believe that Taekwondo can give you everything we have mentioned above and more so give us a call and start your journey to becoming a Black Belt in Taekwondo.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
Here we step up the fitness to a whole new level, concentrating on either
- Lower body,
- Upper Body,
- Core Strength or Cardio each week.
This will give those who want to succeed in the sport a great way of becoming stronger and fitter than your opponent giving you the edge. Also people who want to stretch themselves after the Traditional Taekwondo Class will be welcome again giving you the burn that most people think that you can only get in the gym! The classes are designed to raise your level of fitness in order improve your performance in Taekwondo, hence fitness sessions are based around preparation for combat unlike many gyms and health clubs.
