Stephanie Allen


Team Development Executive

Beside leading London Team, she is active fighter, as well as coach and mentor to the ATA club members.

Stephanie started taekwondo at the age of 6 following her father’s footsteps. She has been doing taekwondo for nearly two decades competing in the heavyweight female division from cadet through to the senior level. 

Stephanie first represented Great Britain at the age of 15, at the Junior European championships and then became an elite athlete for GB Taekwondo at the age of 18 where she was representing the country full time.

Taekwondo has moulded Stephanie into the person that she is today and she owes everything to the sport. It has taught her key qualities such as discipline, respect, determination and many more.

Stephanie recently graduated from Loughborough University with a major in applied sport science. She is leading London team, while competing internationally, as well as coaching and mentoring the ATA club members.
