Taekwondo for Beginners

Our system is a hard-style linear based martial art.

'Hard' doesn't connotate difficult. It's a distinction which refers to linear acceleration, striking techniques, and pragmatic combos to blitz your opponent.

While popularly known as a kicking style, Traditional Taekwondo uses an equal proportion of hand and foot striking techniques. We also feature a wide variety of trapping, locking, throwing, and takedown techniques to ensure practitioners have a well rounded toolset.

Martial Arts is not magic. All of our training and skills are designed to be realistic, self-correcting, and help make you the best that you can be. There's no 'mumbo jumbo'. No unexplained chi or mystical energy generation. We rely on pure physics, and everything is explainable.

What if I have trained in another martial art?

If you are already studying martial arts or have previously studied a martial art, you might be wondering if we know what we are doing. Or would an encounter with us be positive? Or would JDK welcome you, if at all?

Our challenge is always to learn and grow from each other. This school has a good depth of content, an expanding insight into the essence of hard style martial training, and an open mindset. We have always cultivated strong ties with other martial arts schools, and are proud of the community we have helped to build.

We welcome your visit, and are happy to share all of our insight without reservation and without ego. Most martial artists are wary of ego maniacs in the industry and avoid 'McDojos'. We assure you we’re here to enjoy each other's company, and are a very open and welcoming practice.

Come dressed in exercise gear or if you have one, your own martial arts uniform and your highest ranked belt. Yes, if you've learned another martial arts, we respect the belt and the effort you've already invested. We will honour your previous school as best as we can.

Remember to hydrate yourself before class and don't eat an overly large meal.

Taekwondo for Beginners Equipment

A recent beginner walked into my school wearing a V-neck WTF type Taekwondo dobok - something a little different from the foldover white uniform we typically use for beginners, prompting me to start this page so beginners could look through equipment they needed without fear of purchasing the wrong thing!
