Tukido is a dynamic Martial Art which has promoted health & fitness and sportsmanship for over 30 years. It was founded in Scotland in by Hock Aun Teh, a native of Malaysia, who developed Tukido from his own years of experiences in various Martial Arts styles, including Karate, Kung Fu and, more predominantly, Taekwondo. Grandmaster Teh moved to Scotland in the early 1970’s to study at the Glasgow School of Art and is now a renowned artist.

A typical Tukido training session focuses on improving your stamina, strength, flexibility and co-ordination, giving you a full body workout. You do not have to be fit to join, but your fitness will definitely improve with regular classes.

You are more than welcome to come along and try out a class or two free and with no obligation to join. As well as here in the church hall, there are clubs in Motherwell, Irvine, Bellahouston and Kirkintilloch.
