Established and based in Shrewsbury, and now with schools across Shropshire, Universal Martial Arts is lead by Master James Kessler (7th Degree Black Belt and ITF International Instructor & Examiner) and his team of instructors.
We teach authentic ITF Taekwon-Do to men, women & children of all ages and abilities.
Some Martial Arts schools choose to follow a very old curriculum and use out-dated teaching methods which may be unsuitable for modern-day students. Whilst others teach a free-style system which is often unrecognised and unregulated.
What separates us is that we provide the best of both worlds. Our syllabus is authentic ITF Taekwon-Do as developed by its founder, General Choi Hong Hi. We ensure that instead of a military style approach, our students are guided through the curriculum at a pace that suits them. This means that we keep our students longer and ensure they reach and maintain a high standard.
In addition to our standard time tables, we regularly host and attend seminars with prominent Taekwon-Do World Masters.
All our instructors are insured and undergo a criminal record check with the Disclosure Barring Service - DBS (formerly known as the CRB check) every 18-months. In line with the policy of the British Taekwon-Do Council and UK Sport.
