Our Taekwondo Club
In line with the social distancing policies currently in place at Goldsmiths, and the increasing infection rates of Covid-19 we will not be running any in-person training until such a time as it is safe to do so. Our club will continue to hold regular meetups via online platforms in the meantime, details of which will be communicated to registered members. To become a member please click the 'JOIN Term 1 Membership' icon to receive details. Additional updates will also be shared via our social media channels.
Taekwondo training is still not running for the time being. It is likely that training will not continue until the new academic year (dependent on government advice).
Our coaches are currently hosting outdoor training classes. Please feel free to check out more details on their website: https://www.aquilataekwondo.com/classes-2/
Tae Kwon Do is a great way to meet lots of people and friendly faces, get fit and learn something new. We're a very socialable group, organising nights out and meet-ups during the day. Come to one of our sessions to see for yourself!
This is a Korean martial art, which literally translates into ‘Foot, fist and way’. More than just an efficient way of learning self-defence through kicking and punching, it will help you to improve your self-confidence and develop your agility, stamina and body strength.
During the training sessions we will teach you Olympic style sparring in order to keep you fit and healthy whilst having the chance to prepare you for future competitions if you wish. You will also be learning the traditional Tae Kwon Do patterns, movements and self defense which we believe is very important to learn.
If you practice ITF Taekwondo, thats not a problem! You are also welcome to join this club. We can also enter you for any ITF student competitions.
