"I was instantly hooked from the very first lesson! The moral culture of Tae Kwon Do is something that can benefit everyone. I have been fortunate enough to travel around the world with teams of marvellous people."

"Tae Kwon Do became my everything. I lived, breathed, slept TKD. I passed my black belt, and very much like passing your driving test, that is actually when you "start" to learn? This is when my TKD life truly began! Tae Kwon Do shaped me into the person I am today."

"Our TKD journey started in 1998 when we enrolled Ashley into Cheadle club. Carly's TKD really reached another level under the brilliant tuition of Master Gayle. We competed with teams from USA, Canada, Nepal, Scotland, Ireland, Argentina, and lots of other countries. Tae Kwon Do was our life for 11 brilliant years where we made some great friends and met some inspiring people."
