Why not take up Taekwondo?
Around the Academy:

Could Taekwondo be for you?
Taekwondo means 'the way of hands and feet'
"The way of hands and feet" is a full-on contact sport.

If you fancy getting involved, our quick guide will tell you more.


The sport
Taekwondo is a number of ancient martial arts unified into one sport. It translates as 'the way of hands and feet'.

The aim is to land as many kicks and blows on your opponent as possible.

There are three rounds of three minutes each and the action takes place inside an eight square-metre zone on a mat.
