At HSTS Taekwon-Do, we are dedicated to teaching the authentic martial art of ITF Taekwon-Do to anyone who wishes to learn. We firmly believe in the words of the founder that “Taekwon-Do is a martial art for anyone and everyone,” and we welcome students of all fitness levels and ages to discover the excitement and self-defence benefits of this martial art practice.
Our passion for teaching ITF Taekwon-Do stems from our own experiences as practitioners. Our head instructor Master G.Horan 8th degree, who started training with Grandmaster Sahota in 1985, has never looked back since his first lesson. He remains as passionate about martial arts today now training under Grandmaster Nicholls as he was back then, and is committed to sharing his knowledge and love of the art with his students.
