Teens & Adults


For ages 13+, our Adult & Teens class consists of an intense 90 minute class, doing various training exercises to build strength, endurance, power, and learn the fundamental techniques.

The Kids Program

Bully-proof your child with our comprehensive program for 3-7 year old's. Our program teaches everything a child needs to know to becoming an independent person, including fire safety, stranger danger, bullying awareness, household hazards, and much more. Along with that we teach all basic techniques in Taekwon-Do to help protect themselves against bullies and attackers.

During a typical Kids Lesson, we play various games to warm up, cover basic Taekwon-Do techniques, and do role play to practice danger awareness and moral teaching. After the lesson, the children will be awarded 'ticks' for every challenge they achieved in the lesson, which after collecting a certain amount may do their grading for the next belt. Every term we also cover a topic of danger, such as fire safety, bullying awareness, and stranger danger. After completing the course the children receive a badge for their uniform as a sign of achievement!

Chief Instructor Grand Master Donato Nardizzi
Our Chief Instructor is a 9th Degree in ITF Taekwon-Do, the highest rank. There are less than 35 Grand Masters in the World.

He is the Chairman of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) Kids Development Committee and creator of the Kids Program, which is official program of the International Taekwon-Do Federation taught globally.

I train taekwondo and kickboxing here under Grandmaster Nardizzi (taekwondo) and Mr Jason Ogden (kickboxing) . GM Nardizzi has been the best instructor i have trained under over the years. With the nature of my job, im often moving around the country and training taekwondo under different instructors. But hands down GM Nardizzi is the best instructor ive trained under. I only started kickboxing at Impact last year under mr ogden. He too is one of the best martial arts instructors ive trained under. He has trained up fighters to become kickboxing national champions. His classes are very welcoming and very vigorous and if youre looking for a good work out and a great teacher his classes are where to go!

Unfortunately I can’t rate this place highly… I booked a Myui Thai lesson, travelled there (it’s quite far from my house) and when I arrived the guy at the desk told me ‘it’s cancelled’ I got no warning or compensation. I was just told that I could pay for a kickboxing class a week later instead. Soo I had to travel straight back home..what a waste of time and money!!! I was looking forward to going. Shame….
