CORE CLASSES and DEVELOPMENT PATHWAYS (updated September 2016)

Pathways (re)Explained

Following the structure of many other sports, in October 2016 DTA introduced the concept of ‘Core’ &Development’ Pathways.  ‘Core’ lessons have not changed in day, time or location. However, if you choose, you can try some of our structured pathway classes.

  • Core’  classes cover all aspects of Taekwondo and are suitable for all grades from beginner to Master who want to enjoy fun structured lessons, and work through the Belt system.
  • Development’ classes are specialist classes with particular themes working towards specific goals

The Development Pathways are currently structured into 3 specific areas :-

  1. Sports Taekwondo – working towards Olympic Sparring Competition.
  2. Poomsae / Patterns Classes – to improve your Poomsae, and work towards Poomsae competition.
  3. Demonstration Team – improve you r gymnastic skills, and work toward taking part in public Taekwondo displays

The Development Pathways are open to all but complete beginners.

The Development Pathways compliment many aspects of the CORE classes and can be used to help you work towards your next belt test. Attendance at Development Pathways alone is not sufficient to progress through the belt tests.
