Our Mission is to make
our students more successful
in life through their practise
of Taekwondo at our school.

We do this by teaching our
Taekwondo as a complete
discipline (mind, body and spirit).
This, in addition to developing
physical defence, encourages
the formation of high personal
standards and respect for
fellow men and women.

Through our practise and
teaching we strive to produce
individuals who are positive,
respected and contributing
members of society.

A journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step.

:: Tracey and Vinnie McNutt

“Vinnie started training when he was 4 years old and joined the Ninja programme. He recently achieved his Black Belt and is now a member of the Masters Club. 5 years later, Vinnie is just as dedicated to his training as he ever was ­ he never misses a class. Vinnie has shown a real enthusiasm for the Martial Arts in terms of his physical development. As a mum, I have also noticed the mental benefits which have helped Vinnie both at home and at school:- focus, perseverance, discipline and modesty."

:: Dominic Potts

“It’s been four years since Dominic joined Keumgang as a Little Ninja and now he’s preparing to grade for his junior Black Belt later this year. I think that’s an awesome achievement for an eight year old! Obviously he loves attending classes. From a parents point of view it’s great to see him get so much pleasure from a sport whilst at the same time he’s being taught a positive and healthy approach to life.”

:: Andrea and Oliver Parkinson

“Oliver recently achieved his Black Belt and has now upgraded to the Masters Club. He has benefited tremendously from both the physical and mental benefits that the Martial Arts have to offer. Oliver played one of the lead roles in his school play last week and sang a solo. His performance was wonderful and the Drama Teacher at his new secondary school has “snapped” him up. Oliver did lack confidence and I am convinced that his attendance at Keumgang has been extremely beneficial to him.”
