Parallax Taekwon-Do is a professional organisation which aims to promote the art of ITF Taekwon-Do. We provide quality instruction in this practical and effective self-defence. We are members of the International Taekwon-Do Federation and ITF Australia.
Parallax Taekwon-Do opened its doors on the 12th of March 2019 under the Instruction of Mr Marc Fitzsimons. Since our first class we have slowly built a community of children and adults who attend classes on a weekly basis. As the Instructor of Parallax Taekwon-Do, I have been pleased to see a new generation of students gain and enjoy the benefits of ITF Taekwon-Do. For myself, I have been involved in martial arts for most of my life, studying Judo from an early age and then discovering ITF Taekwon-Do at sixteen. I have been training in and teaching Taekwon-Do for over 30 years, achieving the rank of VI Degree Black Belt. I have had a successful martial arts career and have also achieved qualifications as an International Instructor and grading examiner. I previously operated a school in the United Kingdom for over 13 years, guiding many students through to competitive success and several to Black Belt Degree levels. I was a member of the England Taekwon-Do Association for many years and gained recognition to become a Technical commitee and Black Belt grading panel member. I am a dedicated Instructor, and understand that everyone has different goals and reasons for starting to study a martial art. I strive to help and guide every student that I teach to achieve their full potential. I cannot emphasis how much of a positive impact studying ITF Taekwon-Do has had upon my life. If you would like to join us to discover the same benefits please contact us now.
