Cardiff University Taekwon-Do Club (CUTKD) has been running and competing for 22 years, and is THE most successful martial arts club on campus. Having retained the title of British University Champions, gaining over 250 medals in the past 3 years alone, and being ranked #1 in the league tables, success is what we're all about. We're also the only martial arts club on campus that regularly competes at local, national, and international competitions throughout the year, giving all of our members one of the best fighting competiton experiences Cardiff has to offer - we've never been beaten at university level.

We offer you the chance to learn to spar, defend yourself, get fit, and have fun! Our instructor is one of the UK's top instructors and Wales' head coach: Master Dean Matthews, 7th degree. Unlike other clubs on campus, we offer ALL students the chance to spar in a controlled environment, have tailored classes to all levels, and hold gradings throughout the year.

We're one of few martial arts clubs with permission to train this Autumn Semester due to COVID-19, which is even more reason to try Taekwon-Do if you have never done so before! We will be using a Track app & Trace registration system, enforcing social distancing, and maintaining proper sanitation to decrease risk of contracting COVID-19. For more information, please read our COVID-19 Risk Assessment available on our Facebook Page.

Ranging from complete novices to international standard black belts, our club is open to all and classes are tailored to suit your level - complete beginners are welcome!
We train fitness, strength, stamina, agility, flexibility and of course skill - you won't find another club like us! We work hard and play hard too, with regular socials and fun weekends away. 

We are an ITF (UKTA) club but welcome members from all associations and organisations, including WT, GTUK, TAGB etc.
We also attend WT competitions so there is opportunity for all to compete. The training and qualifications you gain with us are fully certified by the ITF (International Taekwondo Federdation) and are recognised throughout the world! Also, not everyone in the club competes - many people come along purely for the outstanding fitness and social atmosphere - so don't worry if you're not the competitive type!

Feel free to get in contact with our committee via our Facebook or Instagram Pages, or by emailing the club president at HannahDD@cardiff.ac.uk 

Refunds are available, however the circumstances of the refund request will have to be discussed by the committee.
