My two boys (aged 4 and 6) have started Little Ninja sessions recently and they LOVE it. They talk about it all week and are excited to learn the new skills. Really good instructors and a great space at Countess Mountbatten.

I was very hesitant about starting a martial art but couldn't find any self defense classes that fit my schedule. From day one I was totally thrown out of my comfort zone. I'm normally pretty confident and not afraid to look like a wally in public but this was another level. Attending these classes made me realise areas of insecurity that I didn't know I had and helped me get passed this "fake it till you make it" facade. I've learned how to be vulnerable and sit with that discomfort to then build it up again, and actually learned a lot of self defense along the way. Plus it turns out I really like hitting things - and that's much cheaper than therapy. Everyone has been really welcoming and friendly and there's a real feeling of being part of a team. Alex shows you how the, pretty silly looking, moves actually translate into real life and I feel a lot more confident, from a self defense point of view, because of it. Thank you for not letting me leave when I tried to change my mind before the first class!

We have been coming to AO Taekwondo for a little over a year now. Our children - 15, 11 & 7 absolutely love it! The classes cater for all ages and abilities, with knowledgeable, patient and fun instructors. Watching from the sidelines for some time, my wife has now decided to join too and they all look forward to classes and learning new skills every week. Thank you Mr Overy & Team ????

Excellent instructor, still always developing his considerable skills and passing on the knowledge to his students. Very friendly club. Lessons throughout the week, and Saturday mornings. Also does after-school clubs, as arranged by various schools.

I've done taekwondo for a number of years on and off but AO taekwondo is by far the best club I have attended. The club instructor Alex Overy is very welcoming to any student that walks through the dojang door doesn't matter about age or fitness levels. The club also has a number of other black belt instructor's which are very knowledgeable and also willing to help where and when they can. So for a fun and family friendly club give AO Taekwondo a call and come join a great club

Amazing club! We have been training for a few years now and even through lockdowns the club managed to stay active. Alex is always full of energy and keep lessons interesting. Taekwondo has helped with my son's confidence and focus massively and for me... Good to stay active inside and outside the dojang with regular socials to keep the club spirit afloat. I would recommend to all beginners and experienced martial artists. Also kids and adults and families are catered for.

We joined A.O. Tae Kwon-Do as I've always wanted to do a martial arts and it gave us an activity we could do as a family. The club is really friendly, run by a professional and fun instructor. It's been great for learning self defence, for keeping fit and for the children and our self confidence. I highly recommend this club to anyone who wants to do a martial art.
