Daventry Tigers & TKD


Daventry Tigers

This is where it all started.  Daventry Tigers was formed in April 2012 to provide fun Taekwondo lessons for children.  It has grown from strength to strength, and is one of the largest TAGB clubs in the country, boasting local, National and even World champions.  We don't just look after the best students though, we aim to make every student the best they can be.

Multiple Instructors

We have a large number of excellent Assistant & Junior Instructors, together with our new Classroom Assistants.  This allows us to break up the classes into smaller groups by belt level, ability or even age, so you can be sure your child gets the best attention.  Students are prepared well for grading exams, and go into each one knowing well what is required.

Tiger Cubs

Tiger Cubs is a starter class for the very young.  This is for children aged 4-5 years old only.  We keep the class very small so its suitable for the very young ones and for those who are perhaps a little more timid, before they are ready to move into the main Tigers class.  There's a lot of games in Tiger Cubs, as children of this age have short attention spans they need to mix things up more.  We now have junior Classroom Assistants and Junior Instructors in the Cubs class, which makes the ratio of teachers to children very high, so your child will get very individual attention.

Main Tigers

Children can start at Tigers from around 4-5 years old, every child is different and we don't prejudge.   Classes are 45 minutes long, and we break for a game in the middle.  The Tigers learn more Taekwondo than in Cubs, but always in a fun and engaging way. 

Intermediate Class

Once a Tiger has passed 3 belts, they move into the Intermediate Class.  There's a bit of a step up as they move on to train with higher belt level students.  They also train with Adults, so it's an ideal class for Families to attend and train together.  Classes are now an hour long, but we still break for a game in the middle.  Sometimes we even let the adults join in the games! 

Advanced Class

The Advanced class is for red belts and above, which normally takes a few years for children, less for adults.  By this stage, students need to be training at least twice per week.  There's a lot to learn and you need to improve as you work towards that coveted Black Belt.  

Now students are training in with the Black Belts, and standards are high.  Lessons are an hour long, and there's no games.  However, we do still try to make it fun for everyone.  One Advanced lesson each week is taught by 8th Degree World Master Jackson White, to ensure even the higher Dan grades get taught from a higher belt.
