Your Health & Safety with British Taekwondo

British Taekwondo puts the health and safety of its members as its highest priority. Our objective is to minimise the risk and impact of injury for everybody participating in Taekwondo.

Taekwondo is a martial art and a full-contact combat sport, and therefore by its very nature there is always a risk of some minor injury. The British Taekwondo Health & Safety Policy and Procedures are based upon eliminating any serious injuries and an on-going commitment to continually work to reduce risks.
