Welcome to BTA!

The Brisbane Taekwon-Do Academy (BTA) was established in 2020, and is run by Sabum Michael, and boosabums Jack,Jess, and Tara, all dedicated and passionate instructors of Taekwon-Do!

Founded on the teachings of General Choi Hong Hi, the Academy teaches students through the ideals and tenets of Traditional Taekwon-Do - Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.  Students will learn traditional ITF patterns, as well as the practical use of blocks and attacks through step sparring and self-defence. The academy aims to foster confidence and personal growth in a judgement free environment, to help you reach your personal goals. 

At BTA, classes are optimised to allow students to put their best foot forward in learning and understanding materials.  Students will have the opportunity every three months to present to grade and progress through the ranks.
