About us

The club

Littleover Tae Kwon Do is a family orientated Tae Kwon Do club which took up it’s independent status in 2007. We teach ITF style traditional Tae Kwon Do and are insured through MAGB for instructor indemnity.

We follow a set grading structure that allows steady progression through the art up to black belt level and beyond. We also include some theory to work the brain as well as the body. We often bring in independent instructors to keep us on our toes or provide a fresh viewpoint.

The Instructors

Mr Bradford has been a grading examiner for a number of years and has also refereed in national competitions, having being trained in ITF competition rules.
