About

Our Philosophy

At Australian School of Taekwondo, we pride ourselves on delivering quality martial art training taught by passionate and highly qualified instructors. Our programs teach more than just the movements of Tae Kwon-Do, we believe it is just as important to train the mind to be strong, as it is the body. All of our students are treated equally and we strive to teach the importance of kindness and health and to respect all members of our society.

Tae-Kwon-Do is my passion and my life, I run my club with professionalism and pride. There is nothing I would not do to help my students reach their goals.– Chief Instructor Tom Foggo

THE PROGRAM

The Australian School of Taekwondo programs are age specific…we aim to promote healthy bodies and minds and increases self-confidence in all students. Our programs consist of Self Defence tuition in the form of Taekwondo yet you will learn how to overcome all challenges that may confront you in the community, school and workforce. A strong and confident mind and body will arm you with the tools to deal with all situations that may arise.

Main Goals

The program focuses on four main goals that are essential to our way of life.

Respect

Respect plays a major part in the practice of martial arts. Respect for country, master, instructors, senior ranks, dojang (“house of discipline,” AKA martial arts school) and self.

Discipline

Discipline to commit to a goal, and persevere through all challenges. It is essential that students practice on a regular weekly basis and that they follow the instructions given by the instructor. A part of training is to instil discipline as part of a person’s lifestyle.

Persistence

All great leaders understand the importance of persistence. Parents must understand that their children will benefit with consistent training and discipline in the dojang. Unless the person is injured or ill, it is best to attend class at least three times per week.

Leadership

We promote leadership in our program by creating strong role models and leaders. Our black belts take on a leadership role and help teach other students in the class. Their skill set is then passed on to other students.

GRADING

Our students have the opportunity to be graded every three months (depending on their level of commitment and ability) at a Grading Test. At this test, students will perform the martial art techniques they have learnt and have the chance to be graded by the Instructor General of Australian School of Taekwondo.

This is an important part of the Australian School of Taekwondo journey because it builds our students confidence as they progress to higher belt levels. All parents, guardians and spectators are welcome to attend. It is a fantastic opportunity to see what our students have been taught in classes.
