Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do is run by a young family who are Bridgnorth born and bred! The Principal Instructor is a 3rd Degree Black Belt who started martial arts at the age of 10 and has been practising Tae Kwon-Do for over 12 years. Please see our Biography page for more information on our Principal Instructor, Mr Gary Plant.
Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do has passed an enhanced level CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check. We hold Instructors Liability and Public Indemnity Insurance certification and are HSE (Health and Safety Executive) first aid qualified.
Tae Kwon-Do is a Korean martial art and is equally suitable for men, women and children (aged 5 and over). Tae Kwon-Do was brought into the public’s attention during the London 2012 Olympics, with Jade Jones winning a Gold medal in the 57kg category (Great Britain’s first ever gold medal in Tae Kwon-Do!) and Martin Stamper reaching the semi-finals.
You will get as much out of Tae Kwon-Do as you put in; but the martial art attracts people from all walks of life for different reasons:
- Fitness: classes are a good work out, and a great way to keep fit, with classes once or twice a week
- Self-defence: as detailed on our Curriculum page, we teach practical and realistic self-defence techniques which are a great way to increase confidence and defend against bullying
- Discipline: for adults and children alike – to gain a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do is to gain a Degree, and the martial art teaches important life skills such as dedication, perseverence, respect. Discipline and respect are deeply embedded in Tae Kwon-Do
- Confidence: students gain confidence through learning a new skill, meeting new people, and the buzz of passing a grading and being awarded your next belt is not to be missed! Students can gain confidence physically and emotionally as Tae Kwon-Do is a work out for the body and the mind.
