Fred Langston

“Hello, my name is Fred and I wanted to personally welcome you to the site and to T.A.G.B Taekwondo. Whether you are considering joining our club or are just interested in Taekwondo as a martial art you will find plenty of information here to get you started. However there really is no substitute for coming along to have a look at the club and its ethos. Feel free to chat with our instructors and the students to be sure that Taekwondo is right for you.


We welcome everyone from Taekwondo masters to total beginners. You don't need to be fit to start. Men, women, teenagers and children are all welcome. Contact us for more information or come along ten minutes before a lesson to have a chat.”


-Fred Langston (4th Dan) Instructor

Kidsgrove & Newcastle Taekwondo is a family friendly martial arts club training men, women, teenagers and children. We have been teaching Taekwondo since 1997. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art using punches, kicks and blocks to provide an effective form of unarmed self-defence. Developed from Shotokan Karate and the ancient Korean art of Tae-Kyon, Taekwondo is known for its powerful techniques and is practiced by the Korean army.


Some choose to train to lose weight or keep fit, some love to compete in local and national competitions and others come because it is a great way for families to have fun together. Whatever your reasons for training with us you will find that Taekwondo has many benefits including increased fitness and flexibility, increased confidence, a means of self-defence, the opportunity to compete or eventually become an umpire or instructor yourself. Not to mention meeting a bunch of great new friends!


In addition to training within the dojang (training hall) we also have day trips and excursions that are a huge success and as you can see we don’t always take ourselves too seriously but we do train in a disciplined environment upholding the five tenets of Taekwondo – Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance and Indomitable Spirit.


We hope you enjoy training as much as we do!

The club is a part of the T.A.G.B. (Taekwondo Association of Great Britain), the largest single martial arts association in Europe. The T.A.G.B currently has over 20,000 members training in over 600 clubs across the UK.
