What is taekwondo?

Meaning "the art of hand and foot", taekwondo is a martial art originating in Korea over 60 years ago. It is known for its strong kicks and elements of self-defence.

As a sport taekwondo offers the perfect combination of fitness, strength, balance, flexibility and self-defence. It's also really good fun and a great confidence booster.

Taekwondo is for All

At Taekwondo4All we believe that taekwondo is for everyone, regardless of age or ability, and the benefits of the sport go beyond the physical - it inspires personal improvement, improves focus and builds confidence.


Why not come along to one of our friendly classes here in Leicester and see for yourself? We currently offer group sessions for children or women-only, as well as one-2-one sessions.


We also offer sessions in reality-based self-defence, taught by a female instructor with a trauma-informed approach. 

These sessions are tailored to the requirements of the students, and are run either as group workshops or on a one-2-one basis.


I have been going to Tamsin’s class for about 6-7 weeks now and I just love it. Tamsin is a great instructor and makes you feel at ease and I feel like I’ve had a good work out by the end of the class. The exercises are brilliant, I enjoy the line work, sparring and building my core strength. The stretches are amazing too!

Meet the Instructor


Tamsin Davis IV Dan


Hello, I'm Tamsin and I've been practising taekwondo and other martial arts for over 17 years.

I'm now a 4th Dan black belt and a qualified instructor with the British Taekwondo Council and a member of the UK ITF.

As part of my qualification I am fully DBS-checked and trained in Safeguarding and Emergency First Aid for sporting injuries.

I am also a qualified instructor in real life self-defence and run short courses and 1-2-1 sessions teaching self protection for women.

I'm particularly passionate about introducing more women and girls to the sport as the benefits go beyond just physical exercise. Why not come along to one of our friendly classes and see for yourself?
