Jennifer Treasure Tae Kwon Do
You can join anytime at this club in Swansea which I am trying to build after returning to Wales after 40 years. We have a dedicated group of children and adults. As a senior instructor and one of the first women to take up Tae Kwon Do in Singapore and having recently returned from Belgium after running my own organization for 22 years, my intention is to offer quality lessons to the Swansea Community.
As a traditional practitioner, I am having to adapt to the changing martial arts climate by offering interesting and fun courses whilst trying to keep the traditional form of Tae Kwon Do alive. My focus is not on fighting like clubs with the old dynastic style of training, where you get injured after a few months. You won't learn anything in this way, it takes time and patience. I teach technique which offers a host of benefits, not least, fitness, self defence, balance, self-confidence, discipline, respect which will help to equip the student develop life skills. Tae Kwon Do should be enjoyable as an activity and most of my students like my classes. Though it is a fighting art, it is a way of life and a culture. The Art is a discipline of the body but more importantly the mind. This needs to be remembered by our students regularly to preserve the tradition and help develop the art. Modern day arts which are purely just about fighting, are bereft of the old traditional 'Way'; examples manifold themselves in debates over which is the best style on the internet and other media.
