Meet The Team

Pacific International Taekwondo co-founders, Trevor and Margaret Dicks know a thing or two about martial arts.

Between learning from some of the world’s greatest taekwondo instructors, opening dedicated centres in two countries, and training for over four decades, the husband and wife team have a strong claim to be among the country’s foremost experts.

A chance encounter with martial arts in the UK in 1972 where they trained with the UKTA under the guidance of Grandmaster Rhee Ki Ha, ignited a passion for the sport – and the intense mental and physical strength required to excel in it.

It’s a flame that’s still burning strongly in this unique couple.

In fact, they’ve now spent 40 years doing what they enjoy most: helping people boost their health, fitness, mental well-being, and defence skills, through martial arts.

Why not discover the thrill of Taekwondo with two of its most dedicated instructors?
