Torbay Taekwondo’s beginner classes allow students with no prior Taekwondo or martial arts training to gain confidence and learn the basics. This allows the instructor to go at a slower pace allowing new students to gain a solid foundation on which to take root.
Torbay Taekwondo beginner Junior classes run at our Paignton and Torquay venues.
Our Junior classes are designed to be first and foremost fun structured sessions for kids aged between 7-15 years old.
We teach the core basics of our Taekwondo syllabus along with discipline and respect through games, exercises and group activities.
