09 September 2018 WELCOME to our new members and their parents. Please note our main communications is facebook and this news page. While every effort will be made to communicate any changes in class times we ask parents to check in regularly on this page and to follow us on facebook.
About the Club: Clontarf TKD & Killester TKD are jointly known as North Star Taekwon-do. Both clubs compete together under this banner at all Munster, Leinster and National Championships. The Clubs are part of the Irish Taekwon-do Association (NGB for ITF Taekwon-do in Ireland). This places onerous obligations on the club which are taken very seriously. We have had great success in recent years and look forward to more in the future. We are a unique Club, balancing our efforts to ensure to push our junior students to develop their full potential while having great fun. At the other end of the scale, we are heavily involved at the highest level of European and World Taekwon-do and the Irish National Team. While this can mean changes to certain training times, all students benefit from the great experience this gives to our instructors and our more senior grades at the club. Thank you for joining us on our journey.
