Our club is very much a family orientated club and we allow parents to watch their children if they wish to.  We offer a high standard of tuition with lots of equipment and varied lessons.  No one lesson is th same and we are always thinking of new training ideas but we are very strict on discipline, especially in the junior classes.  Unlike many other local clubs we provide our students with all the equipment they need (apart from the uniform - prices start at £18!).  We also have 2 electronic strike pads which measure students power  and speed and Master Andrew has recently bought an electronic body protector similar to those that were recently used at the olympics that students can try out.  Aswell as offering regular gradings (exams) where students try for their next belt (every 3 months), we also offer; merit badges (every 3 months), black belt achievement awards (every 6 months), competitions (every 6 months) and  merit stickers in the junior classes (every class).

The senior Instructors are Master Corinna Broadbent 6th Dan and Master Andrew Warwick 6th Dan who are brother and sister and have been training since 1985. They have been unified British Champions many times and international competitors in Sport Taekwondo.  They are also assisted by a number of black belt instructors who provide valuable assistance. The club is affiliated to the National Governing Body and Master Corinna and Master Andrew are registered instructors and are CRB enhanced checked.  See below for full instructor CV.


As Taekwondo is a martial art, all students, especially children should understand that respect & etiquette are part of e
very lesson. Listening, good behaviour & concentration are expected in every class. Students should not misuse any skills at school, the park etc. Taekwondo is taught for self defence and not for attack and we hope that parents will support us and explain this ethos to young children.

Training in Taekwondo has numerous benefits, it can:
increase self esteem and self confidence, develop discipline, etiquette and respect,
improve co-ordination, fitness and
flexibility and create new friendships.

The main Taekwondo skills you will learn are;
kicks,blocks,strikes, stances, patterns, one step sparring, non contact sparring,sport tkd (olympic) sparring and self defence aswell as general fitness and flexibility training.

Five Tenets Of  Taekwondo:

Self control- control of body and mind to walk away from situations of conflict
Indomitable spirit- show courage when times get tough

Cleveleys Taekwondo Oath:

‘As a student of Taekwondo I do solemnly pledge to abide by the rules and regulations of Cleveleys Taekwondo, strive always to be modest, courteous and respectful to all members in particular to my seniors, to put the art into use of self defence or defence of the weak and never to abuse my knowledge of the art’
