Assistant Instructors

Will Mathers

With a love of martial arts films and a desire to fly through the air executing a perfect side kick I started training in Taekwondo in 2008. Although I started off with the GTUK I transferred to the TAGB in 2013. During my journey in Taekwondo I have trained under several different instructors and gained my black belt under the tutelage of Mr. Harris in 2018. In addition to continuing in my own training I also enjoy passing on the martial arts skills I have been fortunate to learn. I find Taekwondo to be great exercise physically and mentally and hope to one day achieve that perfect flying side kick.
