My name is Petros Karavasilis and I have been studying the art of Taekwondo for over 28 years. I’m currently a 4th Dan black belt registered with World Taekwondo. I’ve been a member of the Greek national team from 2003 to 2010, a member of the National Taekwondo military team in 2008 and a member of the Australian national team in 2019. 

Taekwondo is an Olympic sport originating from Korea. It is a martial art that focuses on respect, discipline and self-control. It is characterized by its emphasis on speed and agility and more specifically on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques.

Saint Spyridon Taekwondo curriculum:

  • A focus on mental and ethical discipline, etiquette, justice, respect, and self-confidence
  • Both anaerobic and aerobic workout, including stretching
  • Learning the fundamental techniques of taekwondo; these generally include kicks, blocks, punches, and strikes, with somewhat less emphasis on grappling and holds
  • Self-defense techniques and forms (pumsae)
  • Examinations to progress to the next rank
  • Development of personal success and leadership skills

Timetable and cost:

  • Wednesdays and Fridays during school terms from 3:40-4:30 for beginners and 4:30-5:30 for advanced
  • $90 per term (uniform and grading fees are not included) 
It is an absolute privilege to be working with an outstanding group of young superstarts who are ready to put in the work, challenge themselves and take their skills to the next level.
