The Hadri Taekwondo Academy first opened its doors in July 1994 with the first class in Walthamstow. Under the instruction of Master Esrar, the academy has rapidly expanded to offer classes in various locations around London. The academy teaches the Korean Martial Art of Taekwondo, known for its spectacular array of fluid and powerful kicks, and offers both traditional and sports coaching of Olympic style WTF Taekwondo as well as practical self-defence skills. Head Instructor Master Esrar Ahmed is a 5th DAN Black Belt, Kukkiwon Qualified International Instructor and a vastly experienced coach and competitor. He leads a team of highly qualified and experienced coaches to ensure all classes are managed properly. All of Hadri Taekwondo Academy's Instructors are CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checked. The Academy competes up and down the country in local, national and international competitions, most recently winning the 1st Place Team trophy at the UTF International Championships in 2011. The club is open to people of all levels and not just those interested in competing.

About the Taster
Your three Taekwondo classes will cover kicking, punching and sparring techniques as well as personal and weapons self defense. Every class will start with a warm-up of stamina and endurance training and stretching before the kicking and punching commences. You will undergo vigorous exercise routines and learn how to apply different techniques (both traditional and Olympic-style Taekwondo) and practice with pads. You'll also be challenged mentally through Poomse (patterns) and meditation. The academy welcome students of all levels from beginners to advanced and the average class size is 30 people, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and observe people of different levels. Don't be put off by the different coloured belts around you. Just find your own pace and have fun. All classes are taught by head instructor Master Esrar Ahmed who is a 5th Dan Black Belt Kukkiwon-qualified International Instructor and a vastly experienced coach and competitor so you can be confident you're in good hands.
What’s great about it?
