Stockton Taekwondo has been running at the Elm Tree Center for the past for the past 14 years and was founded by Mike Winship.
The club meets every Friday night from 6pm until 8:30pm and is split into two different sessions.
Session 1 – Junior Class
This class is aimed at children from the ages 6 plus. Our junior class aims to teach children the basics of the sport along with general stretching, fitness and light stamina. Mike has trained several children up to black belt level and currently has a number of high grades in the class.
The junior class costs £2.50 per child and starts at 6pm until 7pm.
Session 2 – Adult Class
The second of the nights classes is for adults of 16 years and above. Much like the junior class, this class focus’s on the techniques of the sport along with stretching, sparring, self defence, breaking techniques and stamina.
The adult class costs £3.00 per student and starts at 7pm until 8:30pm.
About the class
Taekwondo is a fast and energetic sport that everyone can enjoy, however, a good general level of fitness is required to get the full benefit of the training. We are happy to welcome anyone to come along and join in a class, whether experienced or beginner. So feel free to come along and check it out.

Sessions can be very lively and energetic so wear clothing best suited for exercise like tracksuit bottoms or shorts and t-shirts or sweatshirts. Please do not wear jeans and remember to remove all jewellery prior to training.
