Choosing a Martial Art

Choosing a Martial Art

There are many Martial Arts – Which one suits YOU depends on what you want to get out of it.

This is what Sumners Taekwon-Do can do for YOU.

Taekwon-Do – the physical activity that offers just about everything!

Confidence Building

Self confidence comes from an individual facing seemingly difficult situations and overcoming them. Our system of taking regular grading tests is proven to help overcome lack of confidence, gradually building a student’s self-esteem and confidence.

Train the mind & body

Regular training in Taekwon-Do sharpens the physical reflexes, mental agility and concentration. This has been proven to aid not only a student’s personal safety but also their ability to concentrate (and therefore succeed) in both educational and working environments.

Stress Relief

In our busy, modern society stress has become a major contributor to our nation’s ill health. The focus and concentration, which as a student you will gradually develop, has two distinct advantages to help alleviate the stress we all face. Firstly, whilst training, you will be able to concentrate to such a level that you will be able to “block out” the everyday stresses, providing temporary respite and “re-charge” your emotional batteries. Secondly, as your confidence and mental strength continue to develop, you will find it increasingly easy to cope with everyday stress.

Self Defence

Have you ever wondered why most of the people we regard as physically capable rarely resort to physical violence? Many people believe this is because of the individual’s “reputation”. In reality this hardly has anything to do with the situation. Put this same person in an environment where he or she is not known and they still will not be “picked on”. The real reason is that individual’s self confidence. It is a well known fact that a bully tends to pick on “obvious victims”- people that display physical signs of timidness (looking frightened or unsure and subconsciously displaying signs of weakness in their body language).

As your training in Taekwon-Do progresses, your ability to deal with physically threatening situations increases and as a result of this, your confidence in dealing with these situations also increases. This results in you no longer subconsciously acting as a victim! In fact, most competent martial artists never find it necessary to resort to physical violence.

Choosing a Martial Art

The chance to compete nationally  and internationally!

Although not for everyone, many of the students at Sumners Taekwon-Do enjoy the thrill and excitement of pitting their skills against others in Taekwon-Do competitions. It is important to understand that students are never forced into competing. 

Not only do many students find competing fun, they also discover that it is a great confidence builder and an opportunity to make friends not only throughout Britain but also abroad. Our students have built an enviable reputation on the competition circuit and over the years we have had many British champions as well as nine European and eight world champions! 

We believe that traditional martial arts should be structured and disciplined but above all, should be fun. Our members not only enjoy a friendly and challenging training environment, but they also have a very active social side to the club including summer camps, skittles evenings, barbecues and a host of other social events.
