The most important aspect of Hwa Rang Taekwondo is that it is not only a superior art of self-defence, but that it builds remarkable attributes in its students. Self-confidence makes people generous in their attitudes towards other people. The practice of Taekwondo instills values of modesty, integrity and generosity. These values are fundamentally based on self-confidence and this is in turn created by the ability to defend oneself.

Hunter Hwarangdo is the most advanced Taekwondo Martial Arts Club in Newcastle.

  • "Taekwondo training is great for all ages and has greatly improved my fitness, confidence and flexibility. Self defence knowledge should be a part of everyone's lives these days."
