KTMA Taekwondo Academy stands out as a top martial arts training facility in Singapore, with two locations, including one at Novena (171A/B Thomson Road).
Founded in 2015, this academy has quickly risen to be among Singapore’s premier destinations for Taekwondo training, especially for young children.
Short for ‘Korean Taekwondo Martial Art’, KTMA’s curriculum is developed in collaboration with global experts and is frequently updated to remain current.
What sets their coaching apart is the academy’s commitment to hiring instructors who possess a genuine passion for teaching, prioritizing this over their background and qualifications.
For those considering joining, the academy offers classes tailored for Tiny Tots, Juniors, and Kids. The early stages of training focus on mastering Taekwondo basics, and building core strength, and flexibility before progressing to specialized techniques.
The grading for beginners aged 12 and below follows the Singapore Taekwondo Federation’s system, comprising Foundation 1, Foundation 2, and Foundation 3 levels.
Additionally, the academy offers a Sparring Class suitable for all ages that emphasizes self-defense while enhancing agility and stamina. Other class options include Pattern/Sparring Competitions (with chances to compete both locally and internationally), a Black Belt Class, and a Self-Defence/Anti-Bullying program during holidays, teaching practical defense techniques.
