Here's some things to know about us
KYO SA NIM MR BRETT NELSON
Chief Instructor of the Prestwich Centre
I began my martial arts training because I refused to just sit and watch whilst my son took part. Ever since then I have been hooked.
I love how Tang Soo Do focuses on the whole person - mind, body and soul. This isn’t just punching and kicking, this is Martial Arts!
KYO SA NIM MR HARRIS NELSON
Chief Instructor of the Oldham Centre
I started martial arts back in 2006, learning Shotokan Karate & gained my black belt. I then moved on to Tang Soo Do. I love martial arts - it's a great way to stay fit and it is a really fun activity to do with your friends and family.
KYO SA NIM MISS ABBIE NELSON
I support the Instructors in class, helping other students to learn and to perfect their techniques. I also help to demonstrate some of the different moves to the class.
I started Tang Soo Do with my mum so I could keep fit, learn to defend myself and to take part in a family activity that we can all do.
KYO SA NIM MR NICK OGDEN
Chief Instructor of the Middleton Centre
I only started Martial arts in my mid-thirties when my family and I wanted to find an activity to do together. We all instantly became hooked, and I haven’t looked back since. For me it’s more than just the physical training, it’s also about mental discipline and perseverance to keep pushing yourself. I like to use this philosophy in my teaching, and always try to get the best out everyone who enters the Do Jang.
KYO SA NIM MRS MARTA KELLY
I wanted my son to be able to defend himself in life and improve his concentration. I joined martial arts to support him in his training but also I wished to be a martial artist myself. In our centres, I was always treated as an individual with my own strengths and weaknesses which I really like. Joining the Assistant Instructor Training program also helped me become a better and mentally stronger person. My hobby has changed into passion and career and now I have the opportunity to lead and support others on their journey to a better future.
KYO SA NIM MRS CAROL PLUMMER
My martial arts journey started when I wanted to find something to push me out of my comfort zone, to improve my fitness and build on my confidence as I was entering a new decade! I had no idea I would become completely hooked, and I ended up joining the Assistant Instructor Training Programme, and getting my black belt. I love it and my hope is to try to share my passion for martial arts with others. If I can do it, anyone can!
