My First Lesson

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? You will need loose clothing such as T-shirts and jogging bottoms and we train in bare feet.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME? You should bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.

WHAT DO I NEED TO PAY? You will not need to pay for your first month of training.

IS THERE ANYTHING TO SIGN? You will need to sign a GTI licence form for insurance purposes (parents/guardians to sign for under-18s).

WHAT WILL I DO IN MY FIRST LESSON? This will vary. Tae Kwon-Do is a mix of kicks, blocks and punches. There are set sparring routines and free sparring. There are set sequences known as patterns and we also practice streetwise self-defence. We learn by copying and repetition and there are plenty of Black Belts on hand to assist you.
