Martial Arts Brighton & Hove Classes
Brighton and Hove Taekwon-Do School welcomes all to learn this excitng and dynamic martial art. Whether you are a complete beginner new to martial arts, just want to get fit, learn some basic self defence or strive towards attaining your black belt. There are many classes across Brighton and Hove, and should suit the most difficult schedule. Separate classes for children, “tots” classes for 3-5 year olds and 6 classes a week for adults and teens.
You are welcome if you have done or are training in other martial arts, or trained at a different Taekwon-Do school.
In Taekwon-Do there are over 3000 different techniques which include punches, strikes, blocks, kicks and the flying and jumping kicks that Taekwon-Do is famous for. A student will learn the basic techniques; kicks, strikes, punches, blocks, developing strength, good muscle tone, balance, coordination, speed, power, flexibility, learning defence against attacks of all types including weapons such as knives and sticks.
The discipline is strong at Brighton and Hove Taekwon-Do, inherent in the class from the dedication and focus of the individual students, yet the classes are friendly and enjoyable with good camaraderie amongst all the students.
The physical training side of Taekwon-Do can be quite tough, but is done on a gradient to suit every person from the youngest to those getting on in their years, enabling the most unfit person to join the class and develop their fitness over a period of time being pushed further only as their fitness increases. A person is often surprised at how quickly and how far their fitness levels reach in a relatively short period of time. And as a student continues training their fitness improves to a very high degree along with their proficiency in the art.
The classes are friendly with a good atmosphere and the general commaradie encourages the student to develop in their training as well as constant attention and input from the instructors and the seniors in the classes.
Brighton and Hove Taekwon-Do is affiliated to the International Taekwon-Do Federation and follows the Taekwon-Do as originally meant by Grand Master General Choi Hong Hi, Father and Founder of Taekwon-Do.
Many schools no longer teach pure Taekwon-Do but teach some watered down variant mixed with other martial arts, or along lines so far removed from Taekwon-Do that it barely resembles the art and loses all the power and dynamics that real Taekwon-Do gives a student. It is important for any student who wants to learn true Taekwon-Do to ensure they train at a school still strictly aligned to the ITF, teaching on the principals provided and laid down by General Choi.
All students will have the opportunity to work through the comprehensive grading syllabus, with the eventual possibility of attaining the highly desired accolade of: THE BLACK BELT.
Black Belt is not the end, there are many black belts at Brighton and Hove Taekwon-Do, training to develop further in their Taekwon-Do and martial arts, becoming assistant instructors, just enjoying their training and some are now members of the National Team, competing around the world for their Country. At Black Belt you still enjoy the training that has taken you to this high level but now work to perfect your Taekwon-Do even higher, with a new focus, dedication and passion that comes from having achieved much.
