Instructor led classes run weekly to suit all ages and abilities. Beginners are welcome to most classes but suitability for a class is based on age, knowledge and experience. The category of classes below is a good indicator of where a student will fit, but we maintain an element of flexibility. If you are considering starting Tae Kwon-Do for the first time, or are new to Chard, please contact us to arrange a suitable class. Existing students should ask their instructor before attending a new class.
The structure of our classes means we can teach a range of ages and abilities simultaneously. For those with busy lives this provides a time efficient opportunity to share a hobby and spend quality time together. Parents and children, or siblings who train together, will also benefit from our special family discounts. We are proud that many of our students encourage other family members to get involved.
Ages 5-8 yrs
Tiger Tae Kwon-Do is designed to introduce younger members to the art. Build confidence and keep fit whilst making new friends. Through interaction with other students and instructors, students learn important values such as focus, respect and team work. The full Tae Kwon-Do syllabus is available to all, with the additional Junior Tiger syllabus especially designed for younger members. This allows children to be recognised for their achievements with a series of mini-goals on their journey towards the first colour belt. All Tigers receive regular attendance certificates and the club bear, "Taeger Ted" is awarded each month to an individual who has made good personal development.
Key Stage 1 & 2
Improve fitness, sharpen focus and increase self-esteem while making new friends and having fun. Classes are well structured, with the same syllabus taught to children as it is to adults, just in a different manner. Setting goals and being rewarded for achieving them, gives students a great boost, and is core to the success of Tae Kwon-Do. Combining physical skills such as balance, strength and coordination, with discipline, social interaction and a knowledge of basic self-defence, students are provided with all the skills they need to feel confident in any area of life.
Key Stage 3 up to age 17
Tailored towards teens high energy levels and ability to learn quickly, cadet classes offer students a great release from the pressures of life. Fun, fast pace classes, include extensive pad work, sparring and destruction. Many of our cadets enrol in the Duke of Edinburgh award and include Tae Kwon-Do achievements on their C.V.s
Whether you are new to Tae Kwon-Do, or have trained with another club, our adult classes are great for keeping fit, self-defence and socialising. Every student is treated as an individual with their own goals. With motivation from instructors and other members, all students are encouraged to share in each other's personal achievements. We train hard, but we're a friendly bunch and have lots of fun.
