Taekwondo is an exciting new club, on offer at Northumbria for the first time in 2024/25. Coaching is delivered by our BUCS & EUSA Gold Medalist athlete Simone Abley. 

As a new club, we are open to students who have absolutely no prior experience in the sport. You'll have fun learning the sport while having a great time and making new friends.

We have three positions still available on the Club Committee for 2024/25. Please get in touch if you are interested in getting involved. You will have the opportunity to access our Volunteering and Internships Recognition Scheme (VIRS) and will receive training and a free committee top.

Available Taekwondo memberships in 2024/25: 

"TRAIN"  Taekwondo - cost £50

Wednesdays 15:30-17:00 (from September 2024)

All sessions delivered in Lipman Gym on city campus.

This club is open to all abilities, including complete beginners. Competitions are all self-funded outside of this membership.
