About us

The Nottingham Taekwondo Club was established more than five decades ago by Master Hetherington, making it officially the UK’s longest-serving Taekwondo Club. In 2009, the club rebranded itself as ‘NTC’ (Nottingham Taekwondo Club) as it was taken over by its current Chief Instructor, Mark Moores.

The club is a member of British Taekwondo – the UK’s governing body for WTF Sport Taekwondo and offers a fantastic training environment for students aged four-years and over.

The club also boasts profound success on the national and international stage, with many of its athletes going on to represent Great Britain in major world events, including the European and World Championships.

The club recently expanded its brand by rolling out a branch in Coventry, which is headed up by Chief Instructor Natasha Rawlins.
