Taekwondo karate belts


Melbourne Taekwondo Centre has been proudly teaching Taekwondo to students of all ages since its humble beginnings back in 1963. We have always been at the forefront of Taekwondo development in Australia and internationally, as we are the home to Australia’s only two World Sports Taekwondo Champions. Today, we operate 12 branches all across Victoria, and maintain our consistent goal of introducing new students to Taekwondo and supporting them to develop skills for life from beginner to Blackbelt.

Our Chief Instructor, Grand Master Jack Rozinszky 9th Dan, is recognised as the pioneer of Taekwondo in Australia and has been recognised by the “Taekwondo Hall of Fame”.

  • For ages 8-12. Taekwondo is an exciting, fun and energetic Korean martial art and Olympic sport, characterised not only by its use of blocks and punches but also by its emphasis on dynamic kicking. Taekwondo uses moves such as sidekicks, roundhouses and back kicks, sometimes in conjunction with spinning and jumping manoeuvres.

    Taekwondo also focuses on the development of important skills to prepare you for life, including confidence, respect, discipline, concentration, hand/foot/eye coordination, as well as health and fitness. Our Taekwondo classes have been specially designed to give you and/or your child the edge needed to succeed in life.



For ages 13+. The Seniors class is for adults who want to lose weight, learn practical self-defence and develop their Taekwondo techniques in a safe, fun and welcoming environment. All classes are carefully planned and designed to progress you steadily towards Black Belt. Enjoying the process, you will create winning habits and disciplines that will positively affect other areas of your life.
