About

Our Philosophy

At NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do Brisbane. We pride ourselves on delivering quality martial art training taught by passionate and highly qualified instructors. Our programs teach more than just the movements of Tae Kwon-Do, we believe it is just as important to train the mind to be strong, as it is the body.

National Tae Kwon-Do is my passion and my life, I run my club with professionalism and pride. There is nothing I would not do to help my students reach their goals.– Chief Instructor Tom Foggo

THE PROGRAM

For the past forty years, NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do’s program has proven time and time again that it is an excellent program that teaches a high standard of martial arts, promotes healthy bodies and minds and increases self-confidence in its students.  NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do currently has training centres operating Australia wide, teaching our one of a kind program to thousands of children, teenagers and adults daily.

Main Goals

Instructor General Allen Byrne, established this program focusing on four main goals that are essential to our way of life.

Respect

Respect plays a major part in the practice of martial arts. Respect for country, master, instructors, senior ranks, dojang (“house of discipline,” AKA martial arts school) and self.

Discipline

Discipline to commit to a goal, and persevere through all challenges. It is essential that students practice on a regular weekly basis and that they follow the instructions given by the instructor. A part of training is to instil discipline as part of a person’s lifestyle.

Persistence

All great leaders understand the importance of persistence. Parents must understand that their children will benefit with consistent training and discipline in the dojang. Unless the person is injured or ill, it is best to attend class at least three times per week.

Leadership

We promote leadership in our program by creating strong role models and leaders. Our black belts take on a leadership role and help teach other students in the class. Their skill set is then passed on to other students.

GRADING

We are not involved in tournaments, however, our students have the opportunity to be graded every three months (depending on their level of commitment and ability) at a Grading Test. At this test, students will perform the martial art techniques they have learnt and have the chance to be graded by the Instructor General of NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do Australia.

This is an important part of the NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do journey because it builds our students confidence as they progress to higher belt levels. All parents, guardians and spectators are welcome to attend. It is a fantastic opportunity to see what our students have been taught in classes.

Our Values

History

NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do is one of the original longest standing martial arts clubs within Australia. We have been teaching the same, high quality and disciplined, self defence program for many years under the guidance of Mr Allen Byrne. Due to the high demand for our club, we have opened our Brisbane centres, so that more people have the opportunity to take part in this Tae Kwon-Do training.

An Australian received full-time instruction in Tae Kwon-Do, known then as Moo duk-kwon (Korean Karate).That man, Mr Allen Byrne, eventually became the founder of Australia’s NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do.

Mr. Byrne was summonsed to Canberra, the Nation’s Capital, to introduce Tae Kwon-Do to members of the armed forces, diplomatic corps, law enforcement and of course interested members of the public.

Master Tae Kwon-Do Instructor, Allen Byrne’s, name spread throughout the nation and it wasn’t long before requests to introduce NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do to other states of Australia were received.

NATIONAL Tae Kwno-Do cemented itself as Australia’s strongest growing martial art school with quality training centres Australia wide and its children’s program now being taught to the general public.

Chief Instructor, Tom Foggo, starts classes here due to the high demand for National Tae Kwon-Do’s program to be taught in the Brisbane.

That respect and reputation are still very much alive in Australia today. Mr. Byrne is associated with all NATIONAL Tae Kwon-Do centres and the high-quality martial art that he instilled back in the 1970′s is still being taught today.
