Tamzin Goodwin competingTaekwon-do is for everyone of any age or ability, and there are many benefits to starting Taekwon-do whoever you are – confidence, motivation, fitness, weight loss and a sense of personal achievement, to name but a few.

Taekwon-do is a modern Martial Art based on the ancient art of using punches and kicks to defend yourself. Kicks are an integral part of Taekwon-do and are great fun to do but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a great kicker to be successful in this art!

At Goodwin Martial Arts anyone is welcome whatever your background or ability. There is something for everyone within Taekwon-do. Whatever your goals, needs or requirements, we can work with you to help you learn and progress towards your goals.

If you enjoy the competitive side of Taekwon-do, there are a number of competitions each year ranging from local area to national and international competitions. Students can compete in patterns, sparring and destruction events. For Juniors and Little Dragons there is also a high kick event.

New students can attend 2 FREE trial classes, to meet the instructor and fellow students, find out more about Goodwin Martial Arts, and experience Taekwon-do first hand. Parents of juniors are encouraged to stay and watch our classes, we have an open door policy and believe it is extremely beneficial for the students if the parents get involved. There are NO contracts involved in becoming a Goodwin Martial Arts student.
