Weald Taekwon-Do


We have a full range of students from 4yrs old and from the lowest grade right up to 2 Black Belts, with every grade in between.

Our classes are designed for fun, fitness, self-improvement and for those wishing to compete at any level.
Our students had considerable success at our VTA competition earlier this year and came back with 9 Medals, 3 of them being Gold!
As with any Martial Art, we also teach Self Defence, both from a syllabus perspective and for use in Real-Life situations. 
Of course, as a sport, there is a competitive element and this can be a good way to compare how your skills and achievements have progressed against those of other students and schools. We do encourage this but realise that this may not suit every student. We will help to develop the student but will never force them into a competitive environment! 

 ​4 -6 years (Currently we do not have an available time slot for this age group but hope this will change shortly - please contact us for more information)
Weald TKD offer a variety of courses for children as young as 4 years old.
These courses teach life skills through fun activities and role playing games.
The children learn how to deal with Strangers, Bullies, Emergencies and Day-to-Day Dangers, Building their Self Awareness and Confidence at every stage.
At the end of each term we have a grading which gives the children the chance to show off what they have learnt and earn the next grade, badge and certificate. Additionally, each lesson they will receive a sticker to go on their attendance sheet, which shows how many lessons they have attended throughout thee year and how they performed per lesson.  At the end of the Caledar Year, we hand out awards and attendance certificates for this age group.
7 and above
The children’s class for 7 years and above are ideal for kids requiring “Personal Life Skills” including Self Discipline, Confidence, Goal Setting and Respect.
Our classes are a great way for your child to release extra energy in a safe, fun and constructive way.
As well as learning to kick and punch in a controlled environment, your child will benefit from our professional attitude and positive role models.
Martial arts training can be an essential part of your child’s development, helping to prepare them for real life.
Adults can also gain new skills, develop their confidence, work on their fitness, flexibility and concentrate their power and channel any aggressiion into pad work and board breaking.
Destruction Techniques
With appropriate technique comes great power and we channel this into pads, shields and eventualy boards and bricks as the student progresses.
The competition side of sparring takes several forms, non-contact, point scoring and pre-arranged sparring between a pair of students or more. This is where you really build your skills and experience, testing yourself against others.
Self Defence
You will learn techniques that, with practice, will help to give you confidence to be aware of your surroundings and deal with these scenarios.
These are the fundamentals of movement, breath control, power and continue throughout your training, learning new movements and their application.

Women's Self Defense and Tactical Edge Close Quarter Combatives

(I have just passed my Apprentice Instructor's Course and will be looking for a training partner to practice this system before the Full Instructor's Course in a few month's time)

Tactical Edge is the Combatives System founded by Mark Davies. Originally created as a Close Combat method for Special Forces soldiers, it has over the years developed into a full civilian Combatives System. 

In Tactical Edge we use methods that have been specifically adapted from the methods used by edged weapons arts. For instance, we treat any striking attack as if there is a weapon involved, so we're never surprised by one; & we use a matrix of limb destructions to de-animate the limb, cause cross-extensive reflex action in the other limb, re-set the OODA loop by causing pain & injury on the first beat and if there is a weapon in the hand either cause an explosive disarm or weaken the limb to make a strip or 'returning blade'.

Tactical Edge is NOT just about learning 'Reality Based Self Defence' though. It is a fascinating exploration of some of the worlds most effective combative methods. It is about developing your physical & mental attributes & thus improving your life.

In our Tactical Edge classes the emphasis is on combatives training. Our physical conditioning is tailored specifically towards defensive combat. We're not practising a sport, so our students aren't training to fight 3 minute rounds.

Our practitioners need to be able to explode into aggressive action for a short period of time; but during that time they need to be able fight effectively under adrenal stress.
