Adelaide’s Premier Martial Arts Academy

First Taekwondo was established with the purpose of helping Adelaide residents improve their level of discipline, respect and ability in self defence. Our martial arts/self defence classes stem from the ancient art of taekwondo. However, we take this practice and make it practical for modern day uses. As times are becoming more unpredictable it is important to have at least a basic skillset in the ways of self defence.

We provide our training in a comfortable, welcoming environment, and are always happy to see new faces at our north and south Adelaide locations. Our training differs from other methods such as karate and Muay Thai as there is a strong emphasis on the power of the kick. One of the key elements of taekwondo is respect, and we have a great deal of respect for our students whether they have been practising for some time or if they are new to the art.

So, whether you are located in the northern or southern suburbs, feel free to get in contact with our friendly team – we’re sure we will have a training centre located near you.

Components of taekwondo

There are five core elements of taekwondo that add to its being one of the most important methods of martial arts trained in modern society. These core principles include:

  • Be honourable to your friends
  • Make a just kill
  • Never retreat in battle
  • Loyalty to your king
  • Obey your parents

With these principles making up the moral code of taekwondo, we then go to work on developing a skillset that will improve your discipline, self-respect, levels of confidence and sporting ability. This being said, one of the main things we stress here at First Taekwondo is the importance of being able to defend yourself in the modern age.

Life can be unpredictable, and you never know when your ability to defend yourself and others may be brought into question. This is where the method of taekwondo we teach is highly effective. Taekwondo helps students with the ability to quickly neutralise a situation and eliminate further threats from an aggressor.
