MAUL-TKD goes virtual

MAUL-TKD classes are now running virtually. All members have been emailed – if you haven’t received a message and should have done, please get in touch with the instructor team ASAP.

This is the first time we’ve tried to run our full classes virtually, with all members joining over the internet, so please bear with us while we work out any kinks in the process. We obviously won’t be able to do all of the usual training activities remotely but most of our syllabus can be revised without a partner!

Please see our student resources if you haven’t already got your belt’s syllabus.

Like the rest of the country, we’re not sure when we’ll be back to in-person classes at the school but we’ll keep members posted.

In-person classes cancelled until further notice

In line with government advice that all non-essential social activities should be avoided, MAUL-TKD is suspending classes at the school until further notice.

The instructor team will be testing a variety of teaching methods so that starting next week (24th March) we can begin offering virtual training sessions for both our MiNi and Ori clubs on Tuesdays only. We will wear our doboks and our belts and treat these sessions with the respect and love we would treat any session, even as we practice forms around tables and avoid kicking hanging lights! Training will be different, but it will be no less the martial art we all love.

Once we find our footing in these virtual sessions, we will then move back to our two sessions per week. Please be prepared fifteen minutes early at a minimum for these sessions, as technical issues may take a while to sort out for the first couple of sessions.

Please confirm if you would like to participate in these virtual sessions, and specifically if you have the computer/webcam/wifi set-up/living room space to do so, by email. This information was circulated to all club members and, for MiNis, parent/guardian contacts on the evening of Monday 16th March.

Update (20/03/20)

Virtual classes (VirtuMAUL!) are planned, starting in the week commencing Monday 23 March. Members have all been emailed The information about how to participate – if you haven’t got it, contact your instructors.
