Since 2000, we provide an exemplary level of teaching which enables our students to achieve maximum results. We will always give you our best, regardless of whether you just simply want to get fit, learn self-defence, aim to become a gold medallist or even have Olympics aspirations.
Our Instructors are top-level athletes, who have represented Great Britain internationally.

Through taekwondo you can improve your fitness, flexibility and confidence whilst learning self defence through a fun exercise alternative. As it provides a full body workout, taekwondo is favoured by many and practised by people of all ages.
We are inclusive for people with disabilities.

The Club works closely with British and GB Taekwondo to help our students reach the country athletes' elite.
In 2015, British Taekwondo awarded Allen Taekwondo Academy with the Best Performing Club award.

The club frequently hosts seminars and workshops featuring taekwondo practitioners from Great Britain, Europe and the World.

Allen Taekwondo Academy empowers students to develop strategic thinking and sharp decision-making skills based upon confidence in their own ability and intellect. We encourage managing conflicts and challenges with positive outcome solutions, putting own and others’ well-being and safety first.
