"Taekwondo is a fast paced and fast developing Olympic sport!"


Taekwondo is a fully fledged Olympic Sport
and the interest in the sport has increased ever since.

New Dan Grades

Mark Lemon and Adrian Williams achieve new Dan Grades in Grangemouth Scotland GradingMark Lemon and Adrian Williams achieve new Dan Grades in the Dan Grading, Grangemouth, Scotland.

Mark Lemon moves from 2nd to 3rd Dan whilst Adrian Williams progresses to 2nd Dan - he's now off the first rung of the ladder...only a few more to go before they're both Grand Masters!

The practical was a 3 hour affair comprising of the usual requirements of skill, strength, technique and endurance and was followed by a 1 hour written examination. They performed well on the day which is always a nerve-wracking event, so well done lads!
