THE HEART OF
Cumbria Taekwondo has been teaching the Korean Martial Art of Taekwondo through out the local community in one form or another for over 40 years. Established in the 1970’s by Master Percy Gill, who opened the first of Cumbria Taekwondo’s clubs based in Kendal.
One of his students Master Phil James eventually took over the running of the club and over the years would establish Cumbria Taekwondo as one of the most successful clubs around achieving worldwide recognition.
Many world class competitors trained out of Kendal at a time before Taekwondo gained status as an Olympic sport. Two of Master James prodigies, Kevin Thompson and Beverley Fallows, experienced successful taekwondo careers under the instruction of Master James and were a natural choice as his successors.
Master Kevin Thompson was promoted to Chief instructor of Cumbria Taekwondo and Master Beverley Fallows was awarded the Head Instructor of the Kendal club where it all began.
I have been involved with Cumbria Taekwondo for over 25 years. It is quite simply the best and most worthwhile club I have ever been involved in.
My 5-year-old boy has recently started and luckily he has the same passion and enthusiasm I have for it.
Cumbria Taekwondo provides awesome training and discipline.
