For residents and visitors of all ages will be held at Baddeck Academy on Thursdays October 30 and November 6 at the Fitness Area (Small gym) at Baddeck Academy from 6:30-8:00 pm. * Please wear comfortable clothing and you’ll be in bare feet.
We wish to see if there is enough interest in the community for a program or possible club now and in the future as there was a lot of interest expressed by the Baddeck & Area Community last year, but a certified/qualified instructor could not be confirmed, so efforts are underway again this season.
Certified Instructor Earl Burke (Burke’s TaeKwonDo / Mi’Kmaw First Nation Taekwondo Association) will be leading the try it sessions and future programming/club if there is enough interest. For further information and/or to register for a Taekwondo Program, please call earl at 902.322.5714

Taekwondo means “the way of foot and fist”, which is an accurate description of this Korean martial art. Taekwondo debuted as a demonstration sport at the 1988 Olympics, but wasn’t officially added until 2000. Today, more than 60 million people in 190 countries participate in Taekwondo, and its popularity is growing in Canada.
The Program will follow the Canadian Sport for Life “Active For Life” Taekwondo Model:
Taekwondo teaches participants fundamental movement skills, fundamental sport skills and the ABCs – agility, balance, coordination and speed – of physical literacy. This physical literacy is developed through learning different sparring techniques, martial arts (patterns), and self-defence.
Taekwondo’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model consists of eight stages
•Active Start (M, F 3-5) – Introduces fundamental movement skills through physical activity and play.
•FUNdamentals (M 6-9, F 6-8) – Develops fundamental movement skills that teach overall body and limb control while emphasizing fun activity in a safe and non-threatening environment.
•Learn to Train (M 10-12, F 9-11) – Consolidates and refines basic Taekwondo skills and introduces practical tactical knowledge and decision making.
•Train to Train (M 12-16, F 11-15) – Begins to specialize in combative Taekwondo and introduces proper training for the development of proper lifting techniques. Begin emphasis on sparring.
•Train to Compete (M 16-18+, F 15-17+) – Focuses on the training process rather than the outcome of the competition while emphasizing hard work, self-discipline and commitment. Continued emphasis on sparring.
•Learn to Win (M 18-21+, F 17-19+) – Establishes and reinforces belief in ability to perform in competition or against opponents, through the development of specific attack and defense strategies. Further emphasizes sparring.
•Train to Win (M 21+, F 19+) – Maximizes ability to perform on demand at the highest levels, regardless of external factors or other elements that may affect performance. Concludes emphasis on sparring.
•Active for Life (M, F all ages) – Encourages individuals to remain physically active and involved in Taekwondo, whether competitively or recreationally, for life. Emphasis on martial arts.
