Barry Tae Kwon Do

Castleland Community Centre Barry Tae Kwon Do

Barry Taekwondo is part of the British Taekwondo and Mudo Academy (BTMA) which is part of the British Taekwondo Council which is the governing body for Taekwondo in the UK


Barry Taekwondo is currently a fairly small club. This gives us the benefit of being able to focus on the individual needs of our students and at time give them one to one training with our chief instructor—Master Leon Shakespeare 6th degree black belt— or under the chief instructor of our sister club from Pencoed—Master Brian Jones 5th degree black belt.

We strive to create a comfortable environment for our students and to teach them to the best of our abilities.
