Littleover Taekwon-Do is a family orientated Taekwon-Do club which took up it’s independent status in 2007. We teach ITF style traditional Taekwon-Do.
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 club was originally started by Mr Garry Bradford, 5th Dan instructor. He has trained for 19 years under Master Victor Leighton 7th Dan of the International Taekwon-Do organisation and has run his own club for 10+ years. 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. In 2017 Mr Bradford handed over day to day running of the club to Mr Jamie Cameron.
Jamie Cameron is a 3rd Dan instructor who has been training with Mr Bradford since 2003.
Mrs Katie Cureton is a 3rd Dan instructor who started Taekwon-Do in 1999. Mrs Cureton initially trained under Master Leighton, and then subsequently under Mr Bradford.
Instructors have indemnity insurance and are checked to enhanced disclosure level through the DBS (formally CRB).
We are a non profit making club and try as much as possible to keep training costs to a minimum. Family groups are encouraged to attend.
Our current fees can be seen here.
Sparring equipment is essential for protection when you start sparring (normally after your first grading). See our equipment list for more information.
We recommend purchasing suits and gear from Academy Sports in Derby. When you visit Academy Sports please let them know you are attending Littleover Taekwon-Do so they know to provide the appropriate gear.
