Grandmaster Lindsay Lawrence 8th dan, and President of Taekwondo Chungdokwan GB is your instructor. Internationally renowned, Grandmaster Lawrence has had a huge input in the development of Taekwondo in Great Britain.
Twice world silver and bronze medallist, twice European champion, and World Games bronze in addition to ten national titles, Grandmaster Lawrence is a very experienced and accomplished martial artist.
Inspired by the Kung-fu movies of his youth, Grandmaster Lawrence began Taekwondo in a local hall under the instruction of Grandmaster Frederick Lee. Just over a year later Grandmaster Lawrence had achieved his blackbelt and soon after had been entered into the European championships. Knowing little more than the basics, Grandmaster Lawrence learnt fast, observing the other competitors in the days leading up to his first ever competition. From that point there was no looking back with Grandmaster Lee guiding his protégé into more international competitions and even some filming in Hong Kong.
