About the Academy

Cornwall Taekwondo Academy has been established for over 20 years and has schools in Pool, Camborne and Truro. 


We are known as a family friendly academy, where all new students are made to feel welcome. Our classes are aimed at improving individual performance, enjoyment and developing an effective form of self-defence, for people of all ages and abilities. Taekwondo is an excellent way to get fit, relieve stress, improve confidence, meet new friends and experience martial art classes that are challenging and fun.

​We are members of Global Taekwondo International (GTI), a family of Taekwondo Schools located throughout the UK.
