About Us

We are a family oriented WTF style Taekwondo club based in the lovely village of Overton which is near Basingstoke, Hampshire. Founded in 1997, the club has trained in various venues across Basingstoke, but we have never lost our connection to the village. Our members range in age from six to sixties.

We teach WTF Taekwondo, which is a combination of the Olympic sport, patterns, basics, sparring and self defence. Our aim is to introduce the benefits of Taekwondo to everyone, regardless of age, gender or ability.

We are part of  Chungdokwan or the Bluewave school founded in 1944 by Won Kuk Lee. Chungdokwan was the first martial at school or kwan in Korea to teach Taekwondo. Through Chungdokwan we are affiliated to the world headquarters of Taekwondo, Kukkiwon in South Korea.

Overton Taekwondo is a member of British Taekwondo who are the governing body for World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) Taekwondo in the United Kingdom.

Overton Taekwondo is a charity. Our instructors are not paid, so all class fees go back into the club. We have a committee of Charity trustees who ensure the responsible and effective financial management of the club. We are a club run by our members and are always ready to welcome volunteers!

All our instructors have full CRB/DBS checks in place, full indemnity insurance, and are trained in first aid and safeguarding. We aim to make Taekwondo a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Many of our members have competed in local and national competitions. Several have travelled abroad to compete or take part in sports exchanges. We do our best to be a friendly club with lots of opportunities to socialise!
