High Success Rates & Nurturing Instruction

DEDEN-TKD is a group of family friendly clubs offering modern and professional martial arts training, with classes located in Bolton, North Manchester and Warrington.

We practice traditional ITF Taekwon-Do, as first developed by General Choi Hong Hi on 11th April 1955.
Our clubs form part of the Trident Taekwon-Do Group, which is a group of clubs throughout Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Including a full time Taekwon-Do Academy based in Sale, Cheshire.

Nationally we are part of the Taekwon-Do United Kingdom organisation (T-UK) who’s headquarters are based in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire. With many clubs throughout England and Scotland.
Globally we are members of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), which was founded by General Choi Hong Hi on 22nd March 1966. These regional, national and global affiliations ensure that our students have the very best tuition and opportunities available.

Our classes include a full range of techniques, including technical detail, patterns, pad work, physical workouts, self-defence techniques, free sparring, destruction (breaking boards) and theoretical knowledge.
This ensures that our members get an excellent fitness workout, as well as developing flexibility, self-defence competence, mental strength, confidence and knowledge. Taekwon-Do has been proven to provide all of these benefits and it is great fun too.

Many of our students have had great tournament success, winning medals and trophies at both local and national, Trident, T-UK and ITF events. We also bost in our ranks a former World Champion.
The tournaments that we hold and attend are categorised in such a way, that, members of any age and grade level can take part and compete against comparable opponents.

New members are always very welcome and our classes cater for people of all abilities and fitness levels.
No experience is required and your first lesson is completely free!!
