Welcome to DEDEN TaeKwon-Do
DEDEN-TKD is a group of family friendly clubs offering modern and professional martial arts training, with classes located in Bolton and North Manchester.
We practice traditional ITF Taekwon-Do, as first developed by General Choi Hong Hi on 11th April 1955.
Our clubs are members of the T-UK organisation (Taekwon-Do United kingdom) and form part of Trident Taekwon-Do, which is a group of clubs throughout Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester, which also includes a full time Taekwon-Do Academy based in Sale, Cheshire.
Our national organisation (T-UK) has its headquarters in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire. With many other clubs throughout the rest of England and Scotland.
Globally we are members of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), which was founded by General Choi Hong Hi on 22nd March 1966. These regional, national and global affiliations ensure that our students have the very best tuition and opportunities available.
Our classes include a full range of techniques, including technical detail, patterns, pad work, physical workouts, self-defence techniques, free sparring, destruction (breaking boards) and theoretical knowledge.
This ensures that our members get an excellent fitness workout, as well as developing flexibility, realistic self-defence ability, mental strength, confidence and knowledge. Taekwon-Do has been scientifically proven to provide all of these benefits and it is great fun too.
Our students have had great tournament success, winning many medals and trophies throughout the North West and the UK.
We even boast a former World Champion in our ranks!!.
The tournaments that we attend are categorised so that members of any age and grade level can take part and compete against comparable opponents.
