The Little Kickers Taekwon-Do programme

Our Little Kickers programme is designed especially for children aged 5-7. It covers the fundamentals of Taekwon-Do at a simplified level that is accessible to our youngest students. The programme allows them to develop their confidence, coordination, fitness and basic techniques and prepares them well to join our Junior classes at age 8. Our Little Kickers take part in gradings, if ready, every 3 months. Their belt system follows a slightly different structure to the Junior and Adult students.
