About The Academy

The Centurion Taekwondo Academy was founded and established by Gerhard Groenewald on 26 July 2010, and forms part of the United Teakwondo Eagles Group Club (UTEG).
We rotate under Kwanjang-nim Eun Woo Lee that is a 9th Dan Grand Master.

Taekwondo translates roughly to “the way of hand and foot.” Tae means striking with the foot and kwon means striking with the fist. As the definitions suggest, taekwondo is a striking sport. That means that athletes make contact when sparring (fighting). During sparring matches, athletes wear protective gear to help keep competitors safe.

Taekwondo originated in Korea. Its current organized form is relatively modern, but versions of the martial art have been present in Korean culture for as long as 1,300 years. It has been an Olympic sport since 2000.

Taekwondo is governed by Kukkiwon, a Korean organization that regulates training and certifications of taekwondo practitioners.
Outside Kukkiwon, there are two primary taekwondo organizations: WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) and ITF (International Taekwon-do Federation). There are some differences between WTF and ITF schools, including sparring rules and traditional poomse (forms). In addition, the WTF governs Olympic taekwondo. Centurion Teakwondo UTEG Club is a WTF academy.

My kids have been with this club for 3 years... Gerhard is an awesome instructor... They have grown so much in confidence and definitively know how to protect themselves. Will recommend this club to anyone looking to do martial arts. Very disciplined and skilled. 5 Stars to them!!
Awesome instructor that really cares for his students. Will recommend for people wanting to get their kids healthy, active and learn discipline. The students love the sport while learning to protect themselves. Also great for parents wanting to get their kids into a anti bullying program.
