The La Trobe University Taekwondo Club Inc. was established in the seventies by students at La Trobe University (under the guidance of Grand Master Yong Dai Cho, 9th Dan black belt, Kukkiwon).
Head Instructor: Master Yukyung Song
The La Trobe Taekwondo Club trains 2 times a week, 2 hours each session. During a class, expect to thoroughly warm up and attentively stretch before running through some kicking drills or body weight exercises. They are generally set up to learn and practice the art of taekwondo, so particular forms, combos, patterns and respectable mannerisms are normal. There are opportunities for sparring as well as other challenging and fun drills. Each class ends with a warm down that usually consists of deep stretches.
Outside of training, there are regular social events that occur usually once a month. Examples of the activities are bowling, dinner, karaoke, camping, rock climbing, ice skating and more. The group are very social and are always keen to catch up or meet new people.
As a member of this club, you are expected to be mindful and respectable to those around you. Assist in packing equipment away, listen carefully to the instructor and voice out any concerns, so that a resolution can be made. There are opportunities to be part of the committee, in which allows the practice of responsibility and possibly learning a new skill set to work within a group. We always highly encourage people to try compete as it's a very fulfilling and insightful experience.
The La Trobe Taekwondo Club will teach you the principles of the martial arts, strengthen your mind and body, and welcome you to a fun and diverse of group for many events, experiences and enthusiasm.
