Paul Greasley, Age 11, May 2019

I started TKD because I was immature and little self control. TKD has made me more disciplined and has also improved my flexibility. I enjoy it very much and would encourage others to give it a go!

Andy Barratt, Father of Sam (7)

We enrolled Sam into TKD following his experience of doing it one lunch time at his school. We felt that it would improve his confidence and would be a fun and supportive environment. Sam has come on loads, overcoming nerves to take gradings and has lots of fun under Mr Shillabeer’s instruction.

Sam Barratt, age 7, May 2019

I like helping out and setting up before the class and learning new moves. I really like getting a new belt and playing the games that we do!

Jake and Ben, ages 13 & 10

As the granny who takes the boys to Taekwondo I’ve had many experiences that’ve shown me how beneficial Taekwondo is for children. It is great to see them be helpful and supportive to each other as a team at competitions, which is a great day out too. Also I get to see how excited they Read More …

Matthew and Thomas Bergmann, ages 6 and 9

Matthew initially wanted to start because of all the martial art cartoons and programmes on TV! And when I brought both sons along to give it a go they both ended up joining. Matthew was only 5 when he started and the main reason for me was due to the clear structure and aims that Read More …

Archie Twigg, age 10

As a parent of a lively 10 year old boy, I feel DS Taekwondo is the perfect activity for my son. Twice a week he enjoys channelling his energy into learning new skills in a safe and friendly environment. Dave is an excellent instructor, keeping the kids attention and making each lesson fun.

Joshua Sprenz, age 6

We found about DS Taekwondo through friends whose daughter was already a member. Mr Shillabeer’s enthusiasm and reassurance when speaking to him on the phone when finding out more and the offer of a free trial lesson made the decision easy to bring our son along. The possibility to pay monthly is also good as Read More …

Zane Polin, age 7

I found out about the club from the banner outside the hall, and then looking at the website. Zane was at a different club before this one, but I didn’t feel that he was progressing, hence the reason for swapping to DS Taekwondo, where it’s 100% better. I wanted Zane to do Taekwondo to gain Read More …
