We have a club located in the North Mon primary school hall (see classes section for times) and also a full time Taekwon-Do centre in Carrigaline located in Unit 11, Kilnagleary Business Park. North Mon Taekwon-Do is one of the longest established Taekwon-Do schools in Cork having opened in 1991 and recently celebrated in 22nd Anniversary. We cater for male and female,adults,teenagers and kids 3 years and over. Our TKD KUBZ classes cater for both male and female kids aged 4 to 5, with Taekwon-Do Kids, Junior Taekwon-Do and Teenage & Adult classes available. It’s one of Ireland’s leading Taekwon-Do schools thanks to its loyal members and professional attitude of all its black belt instructors.
Each new member commences training at their own pace, with encouragement and motivation from our instructors. Classes for junior members will have an emphasis towards participation, practical self defense techniques, raising childrens safety awareness levels based on common sense pointers and helping them with their self esteem and self confidence, co-ordination,exercise and concentration levels as well as making new friends.
Classes for teenagers and adults will consist of basic Taekwon-Do techniques, confidence building,practical self defence movements as well as aerobic exercise to help raise and improve fitness levels.

What is Taekwon-Do?
Taekwon-Do is the Korean art of self defence founded by General Choi Hong Hi in 1955. “Tae” means Hand , “kwon” means the foot and “Do” means the art or the way of life. Taekwon-Do is a martial art that has no equal in either power or technique , which have been developed by the principles of modern science. It provides the practician with a fine weapon to defend himself or herself. Used wrongly, Taekwon-Do can be a lethal weapon. Therefore the mental training must always be stressed to prevent the student from misusing it and to promote a strong sense of justice, fortitude,humanity and resolve.
