About our School of Martial Arts
Members of Kumgang Taekwondo practice under the direction and rules of Taekwondo New Zealand (TNZ), which is in turn affiliated to the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) based in Seoul Korea .
Our goal is excellence and understanding in the art of taekwondo. We hope to make a difference in the lives of our students.
Each year members of Kumgang Taekwondo have the opportunity to participate in various taekwondo competitions held in New Zealand and overseas. We also have a taekwondo camp once a year, which is great fun for everybody (white-black belt).
A very important seminar we run is our Bullying Awareness Seminar and our STAR programme which has become very popular with students and even more with parents.
Our colour belt promotion tests are held four times a year and for black belt once a year. This year we had nine students promoted to black belt with Kukkiwon (WTF headquater in Korea) certificates .
We currently have two dojangs (gyms) in:
Beginners are welcome anytime through the year and may participate in the initial class free of charge. We go through the school holidays and are closed only for a short Christmas break.
