Black Belt Grading.

The Black belt grading, (for Black stripes taking their first Dan black belt), will be on Saturday 21st April, at 4.00 pm. 

Please note that our area is Central England South, and that other areas will be on before and after our area.

Don’t be surprised if others taking the same grading quote different times, as they are probably from another area.


The Address is163A Church Rd, Bristol BS5 9LA


Don’t forget to attend the re-arranged last Black Belt session, (15th April normal times and venue), where Master Donnelly will answer many of your questions, and give you tips and training for your grading.


English Championships 2018.

Well done to everyone who entered the English Championships, we had a really good day!

We won lots of medals, many fights and pattern rounds,  proving that the hard work coupled with a little talent really can pay off.


Coloured Belt Grading March 2018.

We had another successful grading at Atherstone, with everyone passing their grading.

In particular, we had lots of +’ and ‘A’ passes, showing students with an above average ability for their grade.

Students that have passed their Blue belt should now attend the later session ( 8-9 pm), if they train at Atherstone.


Easter Training.

There is no training on Wednesday 4th April or Thursday 5th April.

The next session is on Saturday 7th April 10.00 – 11.30 am.



See you there




Red Belt and Black Belt Training March 2018

Posted: 08/02/2018

We received  positive feedback  from Master Donnelly and Mr Carter for the students that  attended  the Red/Black Belt training sessions on Sunday 1st October 2017.

Key training ideas that were discussed included:

  • Positions of hands when performing blocks ( Chambering).
  • Foot positions for side, turning and front kicks.
  • Power and focus.
  • Fitness and the importance of regular training.
  • Stances.

Hopefully these ideas re-inforced what we already do!

The English Championships are back, to be held at Worcester again.

We need to ensure ALL entries are paid and in for 24th February to ensure we all are eligible to attend.

All events are as per usual, but there is also a Team Pattern Event, a three person team doing the same pattern in sequence.


Get on board with these events and continue your journey in Tae Kwon-do!
