Modesty, etiquette, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. Our son was introduced to the five tenets of taekwondo when he was a wide-eyed five-year old in tracky bottoms turning up for a taster session at the Church Hall in Ickenham with Tony Butcher. Eleven years later, he is a Second Dan Black Belt and a senior grade in the club but it’s those five tenets that he has absorbed and they will help him for the rest of his life. Tony’s boundless dedication to his students and his enthusiasm in helping them learn and develop new skills both mental and physical have helped make our son the young man he is today.
