HX Taekwon-Do is a dedicated martial arts facility in Harolds Cross, Dublin. We are members of the Irish National Taekwon-Do association, and the International Taekwon-Do Federation.
Classes in the traditional martial art and dynamic combat sport are available every weekday, for both adults and children.

Sign Up.

{jcomments on}I stuck our sign up on the wall on sunny Wednesday. Cheep and cheerful it may be, but it looks great.


I though a five foot sign would be huge, but we could have nearly doubled it.
Now it draws a bit too much attention to the rough-as-bejaysus door with the 14A hand-crafted in white emulsion. If there's another sunny day this week I'll be out there with my painters apron and stencils.


{jcomments on}Had our first, unofficial, training session on Thursday. This was the first use of the gym as a gym, and not as a building site.

This was taken just before we started, obviously we took the plastic off the bags and cleared the floor, which was a bit like opening presents on Christmas morning, kinda.


Also I had a temporary sign made up so people might find out what we are doing here, and we might actually get a few students that we haven't bribed into showing up. Right now I'm calling it a temporary sign, but deep down inside I know that once it is up on the wall it won't be coming back down unless it melts or explodes or something.


In other news; following a long negotiations we have a provisional timetable worked out:

We will have children's classes every weekday at 5pm.

Adults classes will be separated into four categories:

  1. Technical and Self-Defense
  2. Sport TKD
  3. Extreme TKD (Train like a pro!)
  4. Fighting Fit (Fitness and padwork only, no traditional martial art, no sparring, lots of fun)

And will run every weekday at 7pm and 8pm,
There will be three Fighting Fit classes a week, three sport TKD classes, two technical and one or two Extreme TKD sessions.

Also there will be at least one hour 'Open mat' period every evening, sometime between 6pm and 8pm.

The final revision should be in print (and on the web) by the end of the week and classes will start in earnest the week after that.


We are on facebook here.

On yer bike

{jcomments on}This shiny new spin bike mysteriously appeared in the gym the other day.


It would seem that my silent partner is living up to his title, and working on some serious ninja-type skills while he's at it.

So we have our first piece of gym-equipment, not counting the punchbags and shields and stuff.

Exciting times now, we will be open for business from next week. There will be some work on the place still outstanding, but it will be open-able and the sooner we start the better. Also I really need a place to train myself, I'm starting to feel the ring-rust.

The first few classes will probably just be a few friends and the summer training for D.I.T. Taekwon-Do students, since we haven't sorted out advertising or even signage yet.
