Cardiff University Tae Kwon-Do Club (CUTKD) has been running and competing for 20 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 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.

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 WTF, GTUK, TAGB etc.
We also attend WTF 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!

Just drop in to any class to give it a go!

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