Professional Taekwondo is very ambitious in its approach. This is in response to the observed needs of the Gambian society. We are not limited by the small size of The Gambia. On the contrary, while we are small, we think big and this is our motto. At Professional Taekwondo Gambia, we refuse to be boxed in by the small size of the country and its geographical location. In this respect, we are offering the following programmes:
Technical Taekwondo training
This cover: Kibon Donjarg (basic movements) with Kibon Kisool (basic techniques), Kyorugi (sparring), Poomsae (forms), Hoosinsul (Self-defense) Kyopa (Breaking) and Mukyum (Meditation). In each training session, students are taken through these building blocks of taekwondo practice. Consequently, each session will take two hours.
Physical body conditioning
Thursdays and Saturdays are reserved for body conditioning intended to build: strength, agility, flexibility and speed. These sessions are held outside the Dojang, in the vast front yard. This is for Taekwondo students. However, others may join.
Self-defense for women
Not everyone is willing to make Taekwondo their way of life but would like to benefit from what Taekwondo has to offer in terms of Self-defense. And with the growing crime in The Gambia, this programme is designed to equip women with the necessary self-defense skills to repel an attack and/or neutralize an attacker. These classes are offered three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday lasting one hour.
From time to time, Professional Taekwondo Gambia organizes outings for students to different parts of the country. In these outings, training sessions will be held for several hours, covering the programmes presented above.
As a way of increasing familiarity with Taekwondo and changing perceptions, Professional Taekwondo Gambia will organize demonstrations in schools, villages, military and police barracks.
Professional Taekwondo Gambia will be organizing seminars on different areas of Taekwondo. We will be bringing other Masters from other countries to cover specific areas to broaden the expertise of our students.
