Spartan Taekwon-Do School was founded in 2008. It started quite small with a few students some were family members of the founding Instructors. Gradually it grew in numbers and popularity with students of all ages joining and enjoying learning new skills and growing in confidence as they practised the art of Taekwon-Do.
- ‘Tae’ – foot or leg, used for kicking, smashing and jumping
- ‘Kwon’ – hand or fist, used for punching, striking, thrusting or blocking
- ‘Do’ – the Art or Way Of or Method
Taekwon-Do is a version of an ancient form of unarmed combat practised for many centuries in the orient. Taekwon-Do became perfected into its present form in Korea and is famous for its spectacular kicking techniques and in our opinion is the best kicking and punching style of the martial arts in the world today. Men, women & children can enjoy all the art, irrespective of their current level of ability & fitness.
We are an International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) based Taekwon-Do style which encompasses all aspects of Taekwon-Do, whereas the WTF Taekwon-Do style that is seen at the Olympic games only covers the sports kicking side of the art. We also concentrate on the practical self-defence and street fighting aspect of training, as we all now live in a modern and sometimes violent world.
