Gassor's Taekwon-Do are full members of the UK-ITF which is under the direct guidance of Grand Master Trevor Nicholls, 9th Degree Black Belt, General Secretary of the ITF. Master Nicholls was appointed by the ITF to co-ordinate UK membership, administration and athlete selection.
Taekwon-Do is a Korean form of self defence developed by Gen Choi Hong Hi 9th degree Black belt. Taekwon-Do was officially recognised on the 11th April 1955. Translated, "TAE" means to kick or smash with the foot, "KWON" denotes fist - chiefly to punch or destroy with the hands or fist, and "DO" means art or way.
The Taekwon-Do practiced at the centre is affiliated to the International Taekwon-Do Federation (I.T.F). At the M.A.F.C we have special classes for Men, Women and Children with different classes available for different grades and ages.
Students interested in taking gradings to earn highly regarded belts can grade and achieve Black Belt recognition with the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). Also, providing students have the necessary protective equipment they can also enter regular Tournaments and Championships around the Country.
Remember your first lesson is free and all you need is a pair of track-suit bottoms and a T-shirt to start!
