Taekwondo Classes

If you’re reading this, it means you’re considering starting taekwondo classes at Power with Purpose. What you don’t know yet is that you’ll become part of our Taekwondo family, grow as a human and become stronger – mentally and physically – than you ever thought you could.

We’re passionate about offering a unique family-focused, whole-person development approach to taekwondo. We believe that taekwondo is more than just a physical activity – it’s a powerful tool for developing discipline, respect, self-confidence and resilience, both on and off the mat.


Classes for young, old and in-between

Our family friendly classes give everyone – Mum and Dad, siblings and singles – a workout that will leave you exhausted and exhilarated.

Our core mission and purpose are to encourage the personal growth of every individual in our club. We achieve this by providing a safe and nurturing, yet challenging and empowering, environment. We work with our students on a physical and cognitive level to get results.

With a focus on personalised attention and a supportive community, we work with each student to help them achieve their goals and reach their full potential, both physically and mentally.

Our certification with taekwondo governing body Kukkiwon allows us to offer world-class and globally recognised taekwondo training and grading outcomes.

Children in a Taekwondo class

Mixed classes

All our Taekwondo classes are mixed. This means that young children, teenagers and adults all train together in the same class.

This unconventional approach to class configuration teaches our students respect and teamwork, and allows them to gain inspiration from people from all walks of life.

For children, taekwondo offers a wide range of benefits, including improved coordination, balance, flexibility and enhanced focus and self-control. Through our fun and interactive in-person or online classes, children learn essential life skills such as discipline, respect and perseverance, which can help them succeed in all areas of their lives.

For parents, taekwondo is a great way to stay active and healthy while also learning valuable self-defence skills. Our classes provide a welcoming and supportive community where parents can connect with like-minded individuals and set positive examples for their children.

The universal benefits of Taekwondo

For children, specifically, the benefits of martial arts training are well documented and recognised by scores of health professionals.

Apart from growing physical strength, fitness and physical skills, we’ve also seen the following changes in our students as a direct consequence of their training at Power with Purpose:

  • improved concentration
  • increased self-control
  • improved school grades
  • better social skills
  • demonstrating more respect for others
  • reduced ADHD symptoms
  • emerging leadership skills
  • the means and confidence to protect themselves against bullies.
Children and adults in a Taekwondo class

We're pro-family

When parents train with their kids, we often observe strengthened family bonds, increased respect for each other and smiling, happy families.

The Rahn father-and-sons trio behind Power with Purpose, Michael, Matt and Jason, have experienced first-hand the positive impact of group classes in their relationships.

At Power with Purpose, we hold regular family-friendly social events like movie nights and holiday celebrations for all ages.


No-contact taekwondo training

Our taekwondo training does not involve physical contact. Students learn techniques and become fast and accurate in a safe environment. As their skills develop, we teach them how to become more powerful and how to deal with confrontation.

The belt system challenges students to find their personal best and work consistently towards personal goals. As Sa Beom Nim Michael always says, “Best is best.” Be the best you can be and that’s just perfect.

Every class includes a discussion about society and how to stay safe. We talk about protection and boundaries and how to avoid confrontation, keeping your head high.

How fast will I move towards a black belt?

The average student will be eligible to take the test after three to five years, and the training doesn’t end there! Each student can then move up a dan (or rank) after passing their black belt test.

The training and study for each dan increase as you look to further progress through the ranks. For example, to obtain a third dan you would have needed to train for five more years after obtaining your black belt: two years to earn your second dan and a further three years to earn your third dan.

Michael, Matthew and Jason Rahn are all sixth dan black belts. This commands a huge amount of respect in taekwondo, signifying leadership, expertise, many years of training and teaching, a high level of discipline and a wealth of knowledge.
