Herttoniemi Taekwondo Club

Herttoniemi Taekwondo Club has a long tradition in Helsinki. Our own Grand Master Dae Jin Hwang (9. dan) first introduced Finland to Taekwondo back in 1979. We have been operating and teaching Taekwondo in Herttoniemi since mid-eighties. We are part of The Finnish Taekwondo Union and we are also a member of The Finnish Taekwondo Federation.

Our Head Instructor In Kwon Hwang (7. dan) has over 30 years of experience in Taekwondo. He has operated as an International Poomsae (=forms) Referee in European and World Championships, coached the Finnish National Poomsae National Team after his personal competitive career and has also been a Member of the Board in Finnish Taekwondo Federation.

The instructors of our club have several years of experience in Taekwondo and other sports alike. In Herttoniemi we put great emphasis on conducting exercises and teaching classes according to clear and well planned training programs. We want everyone to have a fair chance to develop according to one's age, belt rank and personal targets.

Participating to competitions in both sparring and/or forms is voluntary - what matters most is the joy of exercise and enjoying Taekwondo. For those interested in competing we have very experienced and specialized coaching available along with separate supportive training.

Taekwondo Hwang Herttoniemi - The joy of exercise and enjoyment of Taekwondo!
