Welcome to Boston Taekwondo
Boston Taekwondo and Kim's Kickers Taekwondo are based in Boston, Lincolnshire, UK, and we teach the World Taekwondo (WT) style of taekwondo which you can see in the Olympics. Our National Governing Body is British Taekwondo.
Boston Taekwondo's Chief Instructor is Master Alan Steeper, 7th Dan, who has more than 38 years of experience in teaching Taekwondo and has been running Boston Taekwondo for over 30 years. Kim's Kicker's chief instructor is Master Kimberley Stancer, 5th Dan, who has more than 15 years of experience in teaching Taekwondo. Kimberley started her taekwondo journey with Boston Taekwondo and started Kim's Kickers over 10 years ago with Alan's help. Our club's have an average of 140 members training at the present moment. Classes are available for children from 4 years to adults, and all experience levels, from beginners to National competitors.
At Boston Taekwondo we teach a syllabus which helps to promote self-discipline, etiquette, modesty, perseverence, and indomitable spirit, which are taekwondo's tenets. Promoting confidence, strength, cardiovascular fitness, focus and suppleness are very important to us, but we also promote fun, friendship and so much more. Each student will have access to a Dojo Login app which allows them to track their classes and their progress towards their next grading, which allows independent learning and keeps parents up to date with their child's progress.
Our member's and insructor's safety is extremely important to us. We ask that everyone sanitizes their hands as they enter the hall and advise parents to wear a mask when in the training hall. Please do not come to training if you have any symptoms of COVID-19.
