Happy Taekwondo Family
Taekwondo at Vale Fest
Annual Vale Fest demonstration and performances
Taekwondo, a Korean martial art renowned for its kicking, means “the way of the foot and fist”. We are part of the Ki Taekwondo Association and are an active, diverse and supportive club, catering to everyone from beginners to black belts. The club trains on a regular basis up to three times a week and focuses on WT (Olympic style) Taekwondo but accommodates ITF and other styles too. Our yearly activities include competitions in sparring (Kyorugi) and patterns (Poomsae) on student and non-student level, grading every term, demonstration performances, seminars, fundraising and socials.
In training, we work on fitness and flexibility, drill on kick pads, practise traditional patterns, combat-style sparring and self-defence. When you join our club, you are joining a community, not just a sport – make new friends and have fun with us!
Everyone’s first two sessions are free, so join us to get stronger, faster and fitter whilst learning an Olympic sport.
How to get involved
To discover more and get involved, come and meet current club members at Sport & Fitness Fair on Tuesday 21 September in the Sport & Fitness Arena from 10am-5pm. This is the best place to find about trials and taster sessions. You will be asked to register your interest using the ‘Register Interest’ form above, and then you will receive confirmation of the dates of trials and taster sessions in a follow-up email. If you would prefer, you can also fill in the form before Sport & Fitness Fair, but you will not receive any further information until the evening of Tuesday 21 September.
If you have any questions for the club before Sport & Fitness Fair, please contact the club directly via the red contact us button or their social media pages.
Following trials and taster sessions, if you would like to join the club you must purchase a membership online. To purchase a membership, please click the yellow join us button.
Please note, on top of the club membership fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.
