About Torbay Taekwondo

Torbay Taekwondo Logo White

Torbay Taekwondo Schools also known as Torbay TKD was started on the 2nd October 2000 by our international instructor Mr Grant Churchward. The main school is based at Torbay Leisure Centre in Paignton with satellite schools around Torbay.

The creative idea behind our logo (shown on the right) was to emphasise our location, the origins of our martial art and the journey a student takes to achieve their black belt. Our logo is therefore made up of a palm tree representing sunny Torbay, and a ying yang (eum yang) representing the South Korean flag, while each colour represents a belt.

We cater for all those in our community from people looking for fun & fitness to elite athletes. Our classes are split down to cater for individual needs and we offer a wide range of classes from mixed family classes to age and grade specific classes.

Torbay Taekwondo schools has become one of the top Taekwondo schools in the UK. We have trained several students who have become British, European and World champions. We continue to prove to be one of the top Taekwondo schools in Competitions and from our Grading results.
