Our classes in Sheffield run 6 days a week, in  Attercliffe, Crosspool, Hillsborough, Walkley and Pitsmoor. All our instructors are DBS checked, fully qualified and insured to teach World/Kukkiwon Taekwondo.

History

In 1998 Andrew Hill  started his World Taekwondo journey at IL GI Taekwondo, a club with its roots in Blackpool whom were members of the British Taekwondo Federation (BTF)  a World Taekwondo (WT) affiliate group.  After IL GI split with the group in Sheffield, the Sheffield based group renamed itself Sangmu Taekwondo, the high grades decided to join the World Taekwonmudo Academy, now known as British Taekwondo & Mudo Academy under the umbrella group British Taekwondo Council (BTC) which is for NON-WT and predominantly ITF groups cutting all links to the WT, ETU and the British Olympic Association.

In 1992 Andrew joined directly to British Taekwondo the National Governing body for World Taekwondo in Great Britain, this has given Pilsung members the pleasure of being recognised by the British Olympic Association via British Taekwondo opening the door for students to gain access to the GB Academy and many other related organisations.

Master Andrew Hill has now retired from teaching Taekwondo but his students have followed in his footsteps and have continued to carry the spirit of Pilsung Taekwondo throughout Sheffield, still under the banner of British Taekwondo.
