Our son has grown and developed into an amazing young man thanks to the discipline and teachings of Action Taekwondo. He’s never been more excited to participate in a sport and counts down the hours until class time. He has flourished under Connor’s guidance at the Conder classes.

I would like to acknowledge the dedication and professionalism of Action Tae Kwon Do's Instructor Alex. His devotion to his role as instructor and mentor can only be described as exceptional. He has been a positive and dependable influence on both our children, especially for our 7 year old daughter. Alex has trained her for over two years. With his guidance, she has grown to become a confident, caring and motivated young girl. He was also instrumental in helping her deal with bullying. Through Alex's patience and welcoming manner, our son is also determined to learn and will benefit from attending classes and being part of the Action Tae Kwon Do community.

Our 7 yo son loves Action TKD classes every Thursday. His instructor is an amazing young man, patient, kind and incredibly fit! The class not only teaches our son TKD techniques, it also teaches him respect, patience, endurance, accountability and perseverance. All of these are attributes that our son will need throughout life. Thank you, can not be said enough from us to Action TKD ❀️ ❀️

Action Tae Kwon Do is not just about self defence and fitness. These kids are learning respect, endurance, pride and the list goes on. The encouragement that my son has received is fantastic. There is no negative pressure on my son but encouragement to do the best (and that little bit more) he can achieve, he also has a fantastic female instructor that is a great role model to my son and all the other students in her class. I have really enjoyed watching her class grow over the last 12 months. Thank you seems so inadequate.

Positive: Communication, Professionalism,Β Quality We’ve just started and absolutely love it! I’ve never seen my son pay attention and follow instructions like this before. Usually he’s climbing the walls ignoring everyone at activities. The teachers were absolutely fantastic with the kids, fun but firm. We will definitely be back for many classes my son is so excited to work his way up to the next belt! Highly recommend and the pay as you go option is amazing. I wish more places did this

We have three children (11, 14, 16) learning Taekwondo in this centre with Instructor Steve, and couldn't be happier. The training has shown them self defence strategies as expected, but has also taught them discipline, trust in themselves, and given them pride in their hard work. Steve is a great instructor and influence on the kids.
