About The Club
Hello and welcome to Premier Taekwondo HD. We are a satellite branch of Premier Taekwondo and have branches in Marsden and Golcar which are run by me, Master Amber (pictured to the right). The branches both opened in September 2018 and at present, teach foundation level Taekwondo. Classes are aimed at delivering strong technique, whilst encouraging pupils to challenge themselves physically and mentally, which, in turn promotes self-confidence.
Pupils work towards set goals and every 3 months, are given the opportunity to attend a grading and qualify for their next belt. This teaches pupils how to work hard to achieve their goals by learning self-discipline.
All pupils are encouraged to work to the best of their ability and make progress towards whatever goal they have set for themselves.
Golcar and Marsden
Hi, I’m Master Amber and I’ve been a part of the Premier family for a number of years now. I started training here to help my son, who loves the sport and just wouldn’t stop practicing at home. Shortly after joining, I realised how much I loved taekwondo too and became more and more involved, joining the Elite Sparring Team for a while and then the Poomsae Team.
Taekwondo has now become a family sport, with my husband and daughter also training.
As well as running the Marsden & Golcar venues, I am also Lead-Instructor in the Lil’ Dragon’s sessions at the main branch in Birkby. My background is working in schools and I love working with children.
“I love seeing the journey the children make from their very first session. Each lesson is a journey in itself and it’s great to see how, with a little encouragement, the children challenge themselves to achieve a new goal. It could be learning a new kick, or just simply perfecting an old technique. They are constantly moving forwards and their sense of achievement is so rewarding for both them and me.”
