about us

founded in January 2015

Our first school was opened in Totton in January 2015 by Mr Adam Swain, then third degree black belt, and his wife Mrs Jennifer Swain, then fourth degree black belt. In June 2015 we took on our second school in Fareham.

Mr and Mrs Swain are both International Taekwon-Do competitors and aspire to share the martial art they love – what better way than by teaching it!

The instructors at Swain Taekwon-Do have many years training, competition and teaching experience between them and are united by two main goals:
1. Spreading high standard Taekwon-Do
2. Helping their students to reach their personal goals.

All our instructors are fully qualified, have Martial Arts Instructor insurance and undergo regular DBS checks, First Aid and Child Safeguarding courses.

Swain Taekwon-Do is part of the Professional Unification of Martial Arts (P.U.M.A.), one of the UKs largest and most forward thinking Martial Arts associations. This provides Swain Taekwon-Do students with access to seminars, competitions and training camps throughout the year. These ensure that we are meeting standards consistent across the country.

P.U.M.A. is associated with ITF-England; the National Governing Body of the International Taekwon-Do Federation. This gives P.U.M.A. members access to international training and competition opportunities including World and European championships.

Our aim at Swain Taekwon-Do is to create champions in life, for life, by sharing high quality ITF Taekwon-Do to all.
