About Fit-For-It Taekwondo

Instructor David’s martial arts career started in 1982 training with a small club in Burwood Sydney. Searching for a new club to train at after his club had closed down, he found a Korean Master Instructor Tiger Kim 7th Dan and trained with him through to Black Belt. Instructor David relocated due to work and had to sadly leave Tiger Kim. Shortly after, Instructor David came across Master Instructor Jeong-Tae Kim 7th Dan, who was 1973 WTF World Heavyweight Champion where he trained with to win the 1991 New South Wales Lightweight Black Belt Division Championship and went on to gain his 3rd Dan Black Belt.

Shortly after this time, Instructor David graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Sport and Exercise Science) and also moved to Taiwan where he lived for 15 years. During his time in Taiwan, Instructor David had the opportunity to train with Master Instructor Hsin-Ming 8th Dan, who was the Olympic Taekwondo Coach to the Taiwanese National Team that competed in Sydney at the 2000 Olympics. Instructor David’s son also trained under Master Hsin-Ming from the age of four, from his white belt through to his 1st Dan Black Belt.

Upon returning to Australia, Instructor David moved to Tamworth NSW and trained with a small local club. Wanting more from his training he decided to return to his Taekwondo roots. In July 2018 Instructor David founded the Fit-For-It Taekwondo Academy training in Traditional Taekwondo and Olympic Sport Taekwondo. In September of 2018, Instructor David graded to 4th Dan Black Belt receiving his certification through the Kukkiwon, the World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

Fit-For-It Taekwondo Academy is registered with Australian Taekwondo, the national body for Taekwondo in Australia, the only Taekwondo school in the Tamworth and New England area to be registered with Australian Taekwondo. Instructor David is now excited to share this dynamic, fun and exciting martial art with you at the Tamworth, Oxley Vale Branch.
