    About Trainor Taekwondo

    Trainor Taekwondo schools specialise in the teaching of effective self-defence and Olympic Sport Taekwondo competition skills in a responsible, safe class environment. Classes promote respect for personal health and wellbeing and foster an attitude of personal growth and development.

    Teaching Philosophy of Trainor Taekwondo Academy

    Principal Instructors, Russell and Janine Trainor have combined their passion and expertise in Taekwondo with their professional training as school teachers to develop a range of programs to suit all ages and levels of ability. Russell and Janine have developed a unique teaching philosophy within the martial arts that promotes traditional values of discipline and personal achievement in a class environment that nurtures the achievement of each individual student. The intrinsic value of Trainor Taekwondo’s programs goes well beyond instruction in the martial arts.

    The ten step program to Black Belt becomes a personal development experience where students develop a lifelong interest in personal health, fitness, goal setting and a ‘can-do‘ attitude toward achieving personal sporting or career goals, along with an enhanced sense of personal safety and confidence.

    Janine and Russell oversee all programs and each class has at least two coaches. All coaching staff are people of the highest moral standards first and foremost. Trainor Taekwondo prides itself on being the most professional and successful martial arts school in regional Victoria.

    Trainor Taekwondo schools welcome new members seeking to gain professional martial arts instruction by a student focus school.
