Testimonials

I initially enrolled my daughter to learn some basic self-defence and also to gain some fitness. Since joining Taekwondo she is learning a valuable new skill set that is giving her more confidence, fitness, discipline, respect and the ability to protect herself should a situation arise.

Pacific International Taekwondo is a family environment and we were made feel welcome from day one. I am really impressed with all the instructors who guide the students to better themselves. They give so much of their time to ensure that each student is ready on grading day.

I would thoroughly recommend Taekwondo  to anyone who would like to build their confidence or fitness level or learn a new skill.

Pacific International TKD is a great organisation to belong to. Every aspect of the club is Professional and well organised.

It’s really satisfying belonging to a club full of like mind people. Having trained at several clubs in Pacific International TKD  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of the Instructors who have all been very encouraging, helpful and supportive.

It’s a lot of fun and a great form of exercise too.

I’d recommend Pacific International Taekwondo to anyone… kids or adults.. The training and the discipline could better anyone’s life

My name is Alanna and since commencing training at Pacific International Tae Kwon Do as a white belt I have increased not only my fitness and strength but also my self confidence.

I have lost an incredible amount of weight and I have not felt this good about myself in years. I am an anxiety sufferer and a busy mum so a training session is a much needed “me time” and is a fantastic help to my mental wellbeing. I always complete a training session feeling invigorated and happy.

I am currently a very proud green belt. Next stop blue belt and I am determined to go all the way to black belt and beyond. My ultimate goal is to become an instructor to share my knowledge and skills with people wanting to learn and feel the way I do about Tae Kwon do. It is definitely a positive influence in my life.

I really enjoy my training sessions with Pacific International Taekwondo, it helps relieve study stress and get fit in an enjoyable way.

SI Shane is my instructor and has taught me a lot during my time at Albany Creek but all the instructors are very helpful whenever I ask for advice.

I would recommend Pacific Int Taekwondo to anyone who wants to have fun and even make new friends while becoming stronger and more flexible.

It’s really difficult to put into words exactly what Pac Int Tkd is and does. It has taught me more about myself and what I’m capable of than anything I’ve ever done. I’ve met some amazing people and watched them do some of the most incredible things.

It’s fun and exciting and constantly challenging, but most of all it’s a journey that once I began I never wanted to stop.

I have been training with Pacific International Taekwondo since I was 10 years old. It has taught me many things in that time, not only about defending myself but it has helped build my confidence, made me more disciplined and it taught me how to respect both myself and others.

There are a lot of health benefits to Taekwondo as well. Over the years I have gotten fitter and stronger.

Overall Pacific international Taekwondo was everything I was looking for when I wanted to learn martial art and so much more! – I would recommend it to anyone no matter who they were.

Taekwondo with Pacific International is more than just martial art training.  It’s a way of life and this is reflected in the tenets or the way we do things.  All tenets are easily and importantly transferable outside the training hall.

Courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit are all great concepts for adults and younger students to learn. Training as a family unit also means we learn lots about each other and what’s required for improvement and support.  As a parent with young boys, learning Taekwondo improves confidence, strength and fitness, while enabling them to hold their own.  Not to mention a great way to meet new people.

Pacific Int Taekwondo for me is a great activity. It encompasses fitness training, strength training- both inner and outer and entrusts great discipline. I can also do the sport with my children in the same class. My daughters aged 6 & 10 learn about commitment and rewards for effort (through grading). I feel more relaxed in the knowledge that they will be better able to have the confidence to protect themselves in today’s world if they need to. The environment in which I train and grade with my daughters is good and safe with very committed and enthusiastic people. My Instructors and Master Instructor Dicks are very inspirational and positive people for me and family to be around. I thoroughly enjoy doing this sport.
