“I joined Cobourg TKD because I needed to challenge myself more and improve my self confidence as well. As a young Lad I had taken martial arts before and never stuck with it long enough to achieve any rankings. I feel that earning my yellow belt was a great accomplishment for me, and has set me on a path to become the best I can be. I really enjoy going to Cobourg TKD because of the people. Not only are the instructors skilled but they make training fun with their up beat and positive energy and sometimes they add a bit of humor to the mix. I feel that if anyone wants to learn Tae Kwon Do that incorporates other Martial Arts to broaden the students spectrum, and a fun positive atmosphere, than Cobourg Tae Kwon Do is the place to train. Thank you Cobourg TKD!”
The training methods, skills, and drills will get you in great shape. Taekwondo simply meets the 3 requirements for an effective workout and training program.
“I started because I wanted to try what it is like. I like how I’m learning how to defend myself and it is a fun workout. I believe I can achieve anything if I set my mind on it. I also learned that the time is now and you can’t take it back. I recommend Taekwondo because it’s a fun way to get fit and it’s not a boring routine that you do everyday in the gym.”
“I started because my dad was a member and he thought I would like it so I joined up. The thing I like best is the workout at the beginning and how in shape you can get by going regularly. I also like the self defense moves and combos we are taught. I have achieved a very good state of physical fitness. I think someone else should join because it is lots of fun, the people and the instructors are great and it will get you in great shape.”
Here at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do we teach Traditional World Taekwondo blended with a mix of other systems including Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Kempo, Hapkido, Jiu Jitsu, and Kali. This mixture of systems gives our students a well rounded martial arts program that will help them prepare for whatever they may encountered. We train the systems that are simple to learn and remember and are effective in high stress environments and situations. The student will learn the values of traditional martial arts as the related to modern times through modern teaching and training methods and drills.
“I would watch TKD class before kick boxing & found it so interesting that I wanted to try it. The class was doing really good work but also enjoying it as well. The best part I would say is the comradely and the way that everyone is so willing to help others. No one ever makes fun and the laughter is mutual. I have achieved self pride in doing something that I was sure I could not do and surprised myself by not giving up. I am proud to tell people I am part of Cobourg TKD. It’s fun, lots of help so you can achieve your goals, very nice helpful people at the club, most excellent way to get in shape.”
Our Students learn to defend themselves against common strikes, chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as knives, sticks, and firearms. Just as important, our students learn situational awareness and how to function during the stress and shock of a sudden violent attack or encounter.
“I was new in Cobourg at the beginning of September 2010, as fan of Taekwondo, the first thing for me was to find a taekwondo club in the city. With some research I found Cobourg Taekwondo. As soon as I started training with Master Jonathan I saw the great potential. He is personable and professional. He encourages his students by teaching them the great tenets of Taekwondo which are: Integrity, Perseverance, Courtesy, Self-control and Indomitable Spirit. Even after class, we can benefit with his teaching through his blog and Facebook page. A little while after I started training with Master Jonathan I had chance to earn my 3rd Kukkiwon Black Belt Dan. That was a great achievement that I could be proud of. In addition I am now preparing for my 4th Kwan style Dan grading.For me, it is the right place that everyone who wants to learn Taekwondo and to “Become a Champion of Life”.” Youssoufou
