Or you may just be looking for a regular fitness class, at Brighton & Hove Taekwon-Do we welcome everybody and all levels.

You need to make sure you arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the start of the class as you will need to complete a registration form before you join (to be completed by a parent or guardian if under 18 years) and pay for the class.

You will need to wear appropriate clothing for exercise, something similar to jogging bottoms and t-shirt, we train bare foot in Taekwon-Do, and bring a bottle of water.
