BEGINNERS AND EXPERIENCED players are all welcome and there is no age limit – our players range from 7 to 77 y.o. .. TKD is an individual sport where people can train at their own preferred intensity whether to achieve a black belt, to compete in sparring or forms, to learn self defense or just for some fun and exercise. Several students who started in the Club as beginners achieved internationally recognized Korean black belts (Dan), Hisham who started out the Club moved on to compete internationally with the Bahrain National Team and is now Captain of the Bahrain National Team of Taekwondo. Any players with a competitive ambition can work towards WTF national, international or Olympic competition.
THE KIDS in the Juniors really have fun in training while most also become motivated to work hard towards grading to the next belt level and all hope to eventually one day achieve the coveted black belt (Dan) status. The tenets of Tae Kwon Do, instilled throughout all TKD training, are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit. Our classes are structured and disciplined including fitness, flexibility and strength training in preparation for kicking, punching, sparring and forms practice. Concentration, focus, self-confidence, self-control and self-respect develop through practicing Taekwondo. It’s great to see the kids achieve and break wooden plates!
TEENS / ADULTS training builds fitness, flexibility and strength while developing the fighting skills so recognizable as martial arts, as well as a physical confidence that carries through into every-day life. Players learn and practice the kicks, punches and fighting techniques that develop into sparring skills. Sparring in class is optional, and is a safe and fun sport. The unarmed self defense techniques taught at adult classes are very popular and also practical for ‘real-life’ situations. Occasional weapons classes are an added interest, using mock knives, shehnai (practice swords) or sticks.
EVERYONE can work towards that first black belt (1st Dan), and then train on to the higher Dan levels. Dan testing is authorized and certified by the WTF headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

No one-off section enrollment fee is charged per family.
