About Our Club
Taekwondo (the way of the hand and foot) is a traditional Korean martial art and Olympic sport.
In Taekwondo, students are trained to use their hands and feet in the correct way as a means of self-defence through blocking and counter-attacking techniques. As an ancient discipline that can trace its lineage back to 50.B.C, Taekwondo is based on traditional Korean philosophy and is a complete training system of the body, mind and spirit.
Aquila Taekwondo was formed in 2013 with a vision of bringing traditional and Olympic style Taekwondo to the people of South East London. From humble beginnings the club has gone from strength to strength and has grown into a well-established club with over a 100 active members. We have an extremely diverse membership consisting of men and women from the age of 4 to 80 and a wide level skill set from beginner to expert. Our lessons are tailored according to our students and anyone can benefit from our classes regardless of their starting ability.
Those who practice Taekwondo with Aquila are guaranteed to see an improvement in:
- Strength and body conditioning
- Weight loss
- Teamwork and Positive Social Interaction
We welcome anyone interested in training their body and mind to come along to a lesson to experience a free trial.
