Just wanted to say thank you for being such a great club! Our son loves the sessions and we love that it's always so positive, friendly and fun. Really proud to be part of DES Taekwon Do. Keep doing what you're doing!
DES Taekwon-do is such a friendly and welcoming group. Since she was four years old Taekwon-do has been teaching my daughter concentration, discipline and respect as well as boosting her self-esteem. As we approach the difficult teenage years it's good to know that she has the tools and confidence to defend herself if a night out ever goes wrong."

We joined last year and have found DES TKD run by Derek and family as simply a fantastic club to be a part of. Our son is quite shy and we wanted him to experience a sport that breeds confidence, discipline, and to form friendships but the most important thing was enjoyment. All of these things have been achieved without question!
Derek, Julie, Liam and Ciaran have always made us feel welcome and Derek has a fantastic natural affinity with the children that he always gets the best out of them.
My son, a ‘Little Puma’, always enjoys each session and has participated in competitions growing in confidence throughout, he has even won a bronze and silver medal to date.
This really is wonderful club to be a part of. There is a real togetherness, we really couldn’t recommend DES TKD any higher.

I love going to little Puma’s because I have learnt the little Puma drill with Sir and Liam. I really like the games we play.

When I first started Sir, Liam and the other senior grades helped me loads. I was really nervous but they made it great fun and sometimes we play games. We all just want to do our best for Sir and each other. Doing tae kwon do has made me more confident in everything and I was even awarded a trophy for most improved student. I look forward to training every week.
I took up taekwondo 7 years ago, this club was recommended to me by a friend and I have not look back since joining. I was never really into sport but after my first class I knew I had finally found the sport for me. Mr Skidmore has supported me through my journey to black belt and I can’t thank him enough. My passion is sparring and I love to compete at as many tournaments as possible and I also love to help out in class.
