What our students say about us…

“Really good lesson last night Ma’am! Came away more positive about my sparring!” – RH after Miss Bradford taught a sparring-based class. 

“Massive thanks to Gary Plant, Anna Bradford and all the students at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do for letting me train with them tonight. A very physical lesson and very enjoyable”…

…”Thanks for yesterday. Gary runs a very professional lesson and club. I really enjoyed it!” – GW, a Black Belt student from a nearby club seeking additional training, with his Instructors’ permission. 

“When she got back tonight she said “I’m so proud of myself” which was lovely to hear as she doesn’t have much self esteem! Thanks x” – Anon, after her daughter passed her first grading.

You’re a fab teacher!” – GS, after her first trial lesson with Assistant Instructor Anna Bradford. 

“Our 8 year old and 6 year old started with Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do a year ago. They had tried all sorts of after school clubs and evening clubs but had not managed to find anything they could stick to. After just the first lesson, we knew that they were hooked. We watched them progress session after session and their enthusiasm to learn has not dulled one bit. They both train for two hours a week and enjoy their lessons very much. They train with children of their own age and adults alike. Having the challenge of working to each new belt, together with the support from their fellow students topped with the relaxed and friendly teaching method, I’m sure we will see them become black belts! We would highly recommend this school!” – RG.

Really good 2 hour sparring session tonight at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do. Great to see such an improvement in us all, well done guys! Feet are a bit sore now though!” – RH. 

“I have just started my taekwondo journey at the age of 36. After 9 years of watching my husband and sons doing it I thought why not give it a try. I have definitely gone out of my comfort zone but I am loving it, and am definitely feeling a lot fitter and have plenty of goals to achieve!” – TL. 

Brilliant lesson tonight at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do, well done Chris Murr!” – RH, after 2nd Degree Black Belt Mr Murr kindly taught the class. 

I have practiced tae kwon-do for 14 years under a number of different instructors and through various associations. The technical guidance offered by Mr Plant at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do exceeds anything I have previously experienced. In addition, the GTI syllabus is both the most comprehensive and demanding tae kwon-do training scheme I have participated in. I would urge those individuals considering martial arts to come along to a session and take part.” – GS, black belt.

“I’ve cancelled my gym membership because I want to do tae kwon-do instead” – CT – white belt.

“Thank you so much, we cannot thank you enough and cannot tell you how pleased we are. We are absolutely delighted” – IL, on his son being promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt.

“Excellent session Ma’am, me and Luke really enjoyed it thank you” – DL, after Miss Bradford taught the whole class on her own for the first time. 

“We are very proud parents tonight! Congratulations to our boys on passing their green belt grading in Tae Kwon-Do. Congrats to all of the students who also moved up a grade too!

Finally here are some reviews of Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do, taken from www.dojos.co.uk/BridgnorthTKD:

“My 8 year old son has been attending for just over a year now and not only does he love attending every week and enjoy the lessons he’s learning without realising about discipline and concentration as the lesson is lively and fun. My biggest surprise was my son joined all other outside clubs and after school clubs and gave up after a couple of weeks or a month at the most so for him to still be going strong and loving it after a year shows how brilliant the instructors are and make each lesson adaptable for students young or older. Come along and give it a go or you’ll always be wondering what it’s really like. You won’t be disappointed!”

“I am a 13 year old 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon-Do and have studied at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do for 5 years and I am very happy with the level of teaching there. Tae Kwon-Do provides: skills for defending yourself, a good workout, a good learning atmosphere and lots of new friends! If you are thinking of taking up Tae Kwon-Do and are in the Bridgnorth area I recommend this club and you probably wont find a better choice than Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do”

“I’ve been training at Bridgnorth TKD for about 2 years. Gary Plant’s knowledge of TKD techniques is fantastic and his ability to teach brilliant. Lessons are varied between physical and technical. Can’t recommend Bridgnorth TKD highly enough, Brilliant Instructor, brilliant School!!!”

“I recently started Tae Kwondo here and have to say I really enjoy it. Although there aren’t currently many adult females, I have been made to feel comfortable and haven’t been treated any differently to the men! The self defence is really useful but I mainly enjoy it as a good workout! I would definitely recommend Bridgnorth Tae Kwondo if you are looking for something different, exciting and fun!”

“Just lovely group, I would recommend them every time. My daughter came on so much in a short space of time, enjoyed it so much.”

“I have two sons and also my husband that attend Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do. My 13 year old son has been at the club for three years and is going from strength to strength, he has attended demonstrations and competitions at national level and he will be taking his black belt soon. My youngest son who us only 5 has been at the club for 7 months and has just achieved his first belt. He is really enjoying it and they have been very patient with him. Also my husband has returned to Tae Kwon-Do after 20 years and is loving it, he has only been doing it 9 weeks and has already lost a stone in weight. This is an excellent club for any age and great for fitness.”

“Both my sons have been training with this school for over a year. They are now 6 and 8 and have not only made fantastic progress in that time, but they have also learnt valuable life skills. I have seen them change and mature in front of my eyes and their fitness is impressive! I’m very jealous. Seriously though, I would highly recommend this school”. 

“My granddaughter loves it, she’s only been doing it for two months”.
