Newcastle Taekwondo will help you get fit, stay healthy and have fun!


The way of attacking with the hand and foot has many similarities to karate, kickboxing, tai-boxing and any of the other stand up fighting systems. Taekwondo originates in Korea and is a military martial art famous for spectacular dynamic kicking. In the art side perform controlled graceful movement sequences called patterns to rehearse our skills. On the practical side we rehearse defensive techniques with partners known as set sparring. For those who want high energy and excitement we have the sport side. We wear headguards, hand and foot pads, shin pads and optional chest protector or groin guard for sparring. we decide the winner on a points system... 3 for a head kick, 2 for a body kick and 1 for a punch. there are the occasional opportunities for full contact fighting but this is not actively promoted as we have a focus on safety in our club. We want you to be ready for war but never feeling like you have been in one.

Our instructors anc coaches are competent, motivated , fun to work with, and completely professional.

Our schools have changing and shower facilities.

We are a CIC (community interest company) meaning all the profits go back into improving the equipment and facilities.  

About Us

Our mission is to help you get into the best shape of your life and teach you valuable martial arts skills at the same time. We believe that anyone can learn Taekwondo. You're never too young or old to get healthy and fit with a regular program of exercise.

Martial Arts are a great way to get your regular exercise in and to develop some skills we hope you never need to use for real, but is is nice to have them if they are needed. Taekwondo is not all kicking and punching. We will teach you how to warmup, get mobile and how to improve your flexibility through stretching.

For those who want more than just self improvement there is competition. the TAGB hostes local, national and international events where you can test your skills. Those dedicated students who choose to compete often are rewarded with medals and trophies at all levels.  

We also offer boxing and other complementary training opportunities from time to time 


Fully insured and DBS checked instructors.

Coaching at all levels.

Training from 1 to 3 days a week in two locations.

Access to both National and International competitions for those who want to test their skills.
