Welcome to Wood Tae Kwon Do


Welcome to Adrian and Val Wood club's for Tae Kwon Do. All clubs are members of the Tae Kwon Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB).

Currently clubs are located in Hertford, Chingford/Ilford, Watford, Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes.

This site is an introduction to Tae Kwon Do and in particular to our clubs. It provides general information about Tae Kwon Do and also specific information for the club members.

Adrian Wood

Adrian Wood has been training for over 19 years with the TAGB and is a 5th degree black belt, currently training for his 6th degree.  He has been a TAGB instructor for over 16years.

Adrian took up Tae Kwon Do having initially accompanying his younger brother to a demonstration.  From that first lesson he was hooked.

He started entering competitions from early on his career and has fought for his country in the European Championships.  He has also achieved student of the year within his instructor’s club.

Although now retired from competitions he eagerly encourages his own students to enter as many competitions as they can and has produced many medal winners.

He has coached over 60 students to Black Belt standard

“I draw my inspiration from my late mother who always wanted to be a gym instructor and encouraged me to follow my dreams” says Adrian”.

“Try to be the best you can and always aim high”.



Val Wood

Val Wood has been practising Tae Kwon Do for over 17years. Having watched her husband Adrian for two years she decided to take up the sport herself.

Val has been teaching professionally for over 12 years and successfully runs three Tae Kwon Do Schools.

Val is also a qualfied aerobics instructor and uses her knowledge of aerobics to incorporate into her Tae Kwon Do classes.

"I always try to make my lessons fun" says Val. I have such a passion for my sport and I adore teaching. It gives me such pleasure to see a student take on board what I have taught them. Juniors especially are very good at taking on board information.

I now have coached over 20 students to black belt standard and I am so proud of them.

The most important passion in my life (other than Adrian) is our son Thomas. Thomas is now 9 years old and I marvel at him every day. He is so intelligent and he could kick and punch a pad on demand at 3 years old and now has taken up the art and now a blue belt.
