Who are we?

The CERN Taekwondo Club, founded in 2013, is part of the CERN Martial Arts Club. The club arises from the enthusiasm of a group of friends to practice and share their favorite sport.

Since September 2015, the instructor is master Pascal Norek, Taekwondo 5th DAN teacher. Find out more about our instructor in the Sabomnim page.

The aim of the club is to teach Taekwondo to every person who wishes to join, enjoy great fun and get fit. Whether you are beginner or expert, and independently of sex, age or physical condition, Taekwondo will give you the boost you are looking for.

The course focuses on traditional and modern styles of Taekwondo, be it Poomsae, self-defence or fighting. At all times, everybody's safety is our priority.

We are deeply indebted to CERN and its Staff Association for giving us this amazing opportunity.

It is thanks to the support of the CERN Martial Arts Club that we could transform a summer's dream into cool reality.

We thank our graphics magician Eamonn Maguire, who gave this club its nice logo and an appealing poster.
