TOTAL TKD is an independent member of ITF England and was established in 1994. It currently consists of 10 Instructors with over 500 students and has promoted more than 70 black belts. The objective of our work is to give students the opportunity and guidance to learn authentic ITF Taekwon-Do. Master Symonds, the founder of the academy, is currently a 7th degree Black belt International Instructor and Examiner.
Taekwon-Do is the most practiced martial art in the world offering a great way to keep in shape physically and mentally, while learning how to defend yourself.
On Saturday 30 September 2023, Master Symonds was successful in his promotion to 8th degree under GM Ellis & GM Nardizzi.
This was the first time in ITF England history that a Master Grading had been held by the Grand Masters, making it an even more special occasion.
The grading lasted over 2 hours with Master Symonds performing 6 black belt patterns, variations of self defence, step sparring, multi-target breaking and theory.
The grading showed Master Symonds true perseverance and indomitable spirit after 34 years of training - congratulations!
