Our Mission Statement
To enhance the lives of our students through the physical and mental training of martial arts. To provide the confidence and skills required to defend themselves and others if necessary.
Our School Concept
Ek-Lips Taekwon-Do School is based at Duston Community Centre in Northampton and is one of a kind! It was founded on the principles of providing quality attention for students by maintaining and teaching traditional elements and etiquettes of the art, as designed by the founder and creator of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi IX. Our working ethos and programs have been carefully designed to cater for diverse students as people join for different reasons. To become a competitor, or to enhance fitness and confidence, or just as a social hobby.
At Ek-Lips Taekwon-Do School the instructors are proud to teach, not only for their passion for the art, but also for their ability to effectively communicate their knowledge to students of all ages. Over the years our instructors have gained a richness in their Taekwon-Do training they believe must be shared with others and not kept to themselves! We continue and attentively craft students to understand the correct use of offensive and defensive techniques in Taekwon-Do, allowing them to learn and digest these methods at their own pace.
The new opening of Ek-Lips Taekwon-Do School launches on 3rd October 2015 adding an additional school under the England Taekwon-Do Association, (ETA). Ek-Lips Taekwon-Do School is delighted to benefit from valuable mentor and instructor Grand Master Ellis, who was the First Grand Master to be promoted to 9th degree in England. He took gradings and seminars under General Choi Hong Hi IX and is now the president of England Taekwon-Do Association (ETA). This is an additional reason for our passion to stay aligned with the origins of this fine art.
