Welcome to the studio

Welcome to the Personal Defence Studio – Taren Point. We specialise in hard, committed training in pursuit of perfection of the Coveted Blackbelt and Senior Blackbelt ranks. Based on the traditional art of Tae-Kwon-Do we have a strong emphasis on kicking skills combined with boxing, grappling and take-down skills to make this a very strong, effective and formidable martial art system.

The benefits of training in the martial arts are many from improved focus and discipline to building confidence as your fitness and a very capable ability to defend yourself improves. Most students who train with us make a lifestyle choice which becomes a long term commitment. The reason why students continue to train can be very different from the reasons that got them started.
We train hard with a disciplined and committed attitude. You are offered encouragement and constantly receive instruction from all Senior Blackbelts. Our philosophy is simple – train hard and be the best you can be. Seek to improve every area of your self doubt and become the warrior in spirit you truly are, the person you want to be.

If this is for you and you are looking for something different, please contact us. You will be made very welcome – remember, all current students started with a ‘phone call or email which led to their first lesson and a life changing experience, second to none.
