Junior Taekwon-Do

The Master Wallace Blackbelt Academy teaches Traditional ITF Tae Kwon-do as taught by Grand Master General Choi Hong Hi 9th degree (1918-2002), founder of Tae Kwon-do.  Our tried and tested curriculum is guaranteed to get you the results you would expect from a professional martial arts programme and it is our goal to ensure that ALL students reach their goal of Black Belt.


A central element of Taekwon-Do are its 24 Patterns (Tul) which are learned as a student progresses through the grades.  These are sets of fundamental movements, both offensive and defensive against an imaginary opponent. They help the student to develop correct technique, balance and precision.


Progression through the Junior Taekwon-Do syllabus is by a hierarchal colour belt grading system. There are six belt colours, ranking from the lowest, white, then through yellow, green, blue, red, to the coveted black belt.  Each colour, with exception of black, has two levels of grade, making ten in total.   

  Although we are a Traditional Martial Arts School, we actively participate in Sport Tae Kwon-do - Competitions. 

Academy students are regular travellers to competitions all over the UK and in some cases, have represented their country in the National Team at International events.  
This will give you another focus for your training and also a feeling of achievement, not only if a trophy is won, but for having the confidence to enter.

Our Programme will build the mental and physical skills to allow you to deal with any intimidating situations that may occur.  Students can then test the effectiveness of their techniques in various ways.

  • Power and accuracy is demonstrated by the breaking of boards. 
  • Speed and co-ordination is demonstrated in free sparring.
Moral culture is a fundamental part of Taekwon-Do with emphasis placed on courtesy to others and self discipline.

Some people worry that teaching children a martial art may lead to them acting more aggressively when in fact the opposite is true.  Children who participate in Martial Arts show improvements in their behaviour as a result of:
  • Discipline
  • Respect
  • Achievement
  • Healthy Competition
  • Camaraderie


Students will learn traditional Tae Kwon-do fundamental movements and familiarise themselves with the application of these movements in patterns and practical fixed sparring exercises.  They will learn pre-arranged step-sparring and free sparring




Students wishing to enrole in the Junior Blackbelt Programme will find the curriculum and the training methods extensive and varied.
