About The Club
Premier Taekwondo Leeds Club was established in 2018 by Master Amir, 5th Dan instructor in Leeds (LS17, LS15, LS14, LS8) teach all level Taekwondo.
Classes are aimed at delivering strong technique, whilst encouraging pupils to challenge themselves physically and mentally, which, in turn, promotes self-confidence.
We opened an additional class (Lil Dragons) for age 4-6 years which has achieved so much interest. It’s great to see so many students starting so young.
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.
My personal journey with Taekwondo has seen me through to the championship level for my weight category, in Iran and have lots of experience in that.
When did you start TKD?
I started Martial Arts back in my home town of Isfahan in Iran when I was 6 years old with Kung Fu, and later at the age of 8 I started Taekwondo and enjoyed it more.
Whilst I enjoy all aspects of Taekwondo, my favourite aspect has to be sparring and teaching my classes in Leeds and seeing my students grow.
I was recognised as a National Instructor in the Iran as well as National Referee in every Taekwondo competition.
I love working with children and aspire to teach them more than just Taekwondo, and want to help them learn to be a good person, be respectful and humble.
