OUR CLUB

Our club was founded in 1993. Through many hours of hard work, dedication and the perseverance of numerous instructors, students, committee members and volunteers, we purchased, built and opened our own purpose built dojang in 1999.

The club holds an impressive history and has produced many national  champions who have represented NZ at elite level competitions such as the Commonwealth and World Taekwondo Championships.


WHY TRAIN WITH US

In 1999, after many years of fundraising, we purchased and built our own dedicated training facility. Known in korean as a dojang, it gives us a safe place that is purpose built to train in. With permanent padded flooring this is a place where martial artists can develop traditional values and strength of character free from the demands of the outside world. All classes are taken by black belt instructors with world recognised qualifications assisted by senior students. As students learn, they are tested regularly to assess their current level of ability.


INSTRUCTORS

All our instructors are volunteers, they dedicate their time and knowledge because they have a passion for the sport of Taekwondo. Our head instructor is Master Alan Brian, a Kukkiwon recognised 5th degree black belt. He has over 26 years of martial arts experience. He has won 12 national championships and was in the New Zealand National Taekwondo team for 10 years. He has competed at three WT World Championship events and medalled at the Commonwealth, Oceania and Australian National Championships. Now retired from competing his overall training philosophy is to ensure his students are taught effective techniques that can be used in real life situations. 

Our instructors regularly attend events and seminars across the country and internationally in order to further progress their skills and knowledge. 



THE COMMITTEE

The club is a non profit organisation that thrives due to the commitment and dedication of our students and committee members. We are all volunteers who donate our time and energy.
