Venue:
Belvidere School
Crowmere Road

The course cost is open to students interested in helping other students progress in their Taekwondo. For example, this includes adult blue belts and above who may be helping out with juniors in your club, or 16/17 year old black belts interested in “learning the ropes”.

Assistant Instructors who may be left unsupervised to conduct a lesson require insurance and need to be 18+ years old.

Another positive aspect of completing the course includes:

  • Developing understanding of TKD through teaching
  • Having a great talking point in job interviews
  • Enhancing CVs or College Applications
