Welcome to the Pilsley Taekwondo page! Classes are held at Pilsley Village Hall which is located in the centre of the village. Free parking is available next to the hall and there is a bus stop which is a 5 minute walk away.
Students can train on Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 8pm. We also partner with the Alfreton club (see here) which holds a class on Monday evenings from 7pm to 8pm and you are welcome to train at either/both of these venues.
Facilities at Pilsley Taekwondo School
We train in a modern, well lit, village hall with a hard floor well suited to taekwondo. There is seating for parents and those who wish to watch.
The venue is open all year round including school holidays. If you are unable to attend a class due to a closure you are welcome to train at one of the other schools free of charge that week.
Pilsley is a young club so is mainly junior grade students which can be welcoming for a beginner. We have a range of ages of students and encourage both individuals and family groups to join the club.
Note that you don’t have to be fit or have any kind of martial arts experience to start training, we expect to teach you! We don’t have an upper age limit and plenty of people pick up taekwondo in their later life.
For the younger children, we ask that they are able to follow commands and keep their attention for an hour. Typically this is 7+ years old but students as young as 5 have signed up.
History of the Club
Pilsley school is the newest club in the NottsTKD group and was formed in May 2017 by James Seaman. The club has developed quickly and has some good overlap with the Alfreton school and is already producing some fantastic students.
If you would like to visit us, simply come along and watch a class. You do not need to book in advance, just show up and see what you think.
If you enjoyed watching a class then you can come back for another lesson where you have a go. Wear tracksuit bottoms/t-shirt or similar loose fitting clothes and join in.
The first two training sessions are free and there is no pressure to join. Assuming you enjoy all of this, we can arrange for a license and buy you a dobok (the suit we train in) and you can become a part of the club.
