About Bakewell Tae Kwon-Do School

Hi my name is Martin Hilton, know as George and i am the instructor at Bakewell Tae Kwon-Do. I started the club in bakewell in june 1994 having gained my black belt at a club in Chesterfield where i live

Having achieved my goal of black belt in 1990 i decided to set myself a new target , that of becoming an instructor and to teach others the art that had become so dear to me

Over the next 3 years i continued to work within the club as an assistant instructor , increasing my knowledge in teaching and after several courses at our academy in bristol i successfully passed my instructors examination

Now i was ready to start my own club!

A good location was an important factor in my choice of Bakewell is that at that time there seemed not too many things were available for people with a sporting interest

So the club was born! the seed planted!

The growth of the club was slow at first , but strong and the club gained its first black belt in 1998

Since those early days of Bakewell Tae Kwon-Do i have successfully gained my second Dan , the club has currently gained many black belts, some as young as 10 years old and several still training.

As we have grown as a club we have had to move to new premises located just out of Bakewell , we now train at the war memorial in Ashford in the Water .

As a seed will grow into a Towering Tree , then training in Tae Kwon-do can help you grow physically as well as mentally for a better way of life, of that i am in no doubt
