About Us

Fun and Fitness for all

Tae Kwon-Do can help you develop your personal fitness and confidence, it has already proven to be very popular with men, women and children all over Devon. The TAGB (Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain) is probably the largest martial arts organisation in Europe and the most successful Tae Kwon-Do association.

The reason for this success is that the Korean Martial Art has something to offer everyone, small, tall, fat, slim, adult, child, male or female. The association offers regular courses, competition and training camps for the super keen students.


For Men

Men can develop personal fitness and flexibility as well as self defence techniques in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Regular gradings ensure progress which can be measured, as well as the opportunity to compete in tournaments giving a real sense of achievement. The tournaments have three elements which are:

  • the sparring (fighting)
  • patterns
  • destruction so there is something for everyone

 

 

 


For Women

Women can have all the above and more. Peter’s style of teaching Tae Kwon-Do offers a non threatening martial art which women can really excel at. The training offers women the opportunity to develop, tone and shape their bodies with both strength and aerobic training at a level to suit them. For those who feel apprehensive about training with males, Peter offers the chance to train with female assistant instructors to combine self defence with traditional Tae Kwon-Do  techniques to give you a good all over body workout with fitness training aimed at your level of fitness.

Our Instructors

Classes are run by a qualified professional instructor usually with the support of an assistant instructor. Peter has been teaching for over 20 years and has been a fully qualified, full time professional instructor since 1995. He has had a full check by the “Criminal Records Bureau” and is first aid trained. During this time he has trained numerous black belts with a few going on to be fully qualified instructors and others qualified as assistant instructors. This ensures that even with a large number of students they are able to offer a higher standard and more individual instruction.

Not content with standing still, Peter regularly attends courses to improve his skills and repertoire of activities on offer for adults and children, keeping classes interesting, exciting and a challenge. In Tae Kwon-Do, Peter continues to train with
Master Michael Dew 8th Dan, to maintain his high standards and to pass on knowledge as up to date as possible.

Peter encourages his students to train as hard as they can to the best of their ability, which has generated successes for them both at examinations and competitions. In addition to students passing black belt gradings, which is a challenge in itself, Peter’s students have won and are still winning medals at sparring, patterns and destruction, too numerous to mention. Students as young as five years old have won medals at regional and national tournaments and students in their 40s and 50s are winning destruction awards.
