Spear Taekwondo aims to promote in all its members the principles of confidence, fitness and team spirit. 
What is Olympic style Taekwondo?
Spear Taekwondo practises Olympic or WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) style. This is the only style of Taekwondo recognised by the Olympics and has been an event within the Olympics since 1992.
Taekwondo has evolved from several ancient martial arts and translates to ‘the way of the foot and fist’. Taekwondo is an exciting mixture of set patterns, kicking, punching, self defence and sparring. It is a complete martial art with a fast paced sport element.
Taekwondo teaches more than physical fighting skills, it enhances spirit and life and brings many rewards including


Improved health, fitness and flexibility;
Increased self confidence;
Improved balance and coordination;
Self defence skills;
Self discipline and control;
Team spirit
