Do I need any prior experience to joining AUTKD?
Not at all! AUTKD is open to anyone, no matter their skill level or affiliation. Many of our members have started Taekwon-Do when they entered university
What do I need to start training?
At first, you only need comfortable clothes, some water, and yourself. If you intend to grade, you will need to purchase a dobok which is the uniform for Taekwon-Do.
Is there the possibility to try training?
Yes! We have a Give-It-A-Go session during Freshers Week where you can train with us and see if you like it. Of course, you can also join during the semester. In any case, your first two sessions are free of charge.
I trained Taekwon-Do before but with another organisation. Can I still join?
Yes, you can definitely join us. However, you need to be aware that we only train the ITF style and that techniques, sparring, patterns etc. will all be taught and practiced according to ITF rules.
I have a pre-existing health condition but I really want to learn Taekwon-Do. Would that be an issue?
Of course you are allowed to join us but please be aware that Taekwon-Do is a martial art. This means that you will perform vigorous exercise and at some point even sparring. Please talk to the instructors first to make sure they are aware of your condition. In any case, please also read our Safety Code.
