Beginning in 1946, shortly after the end of the occupation, new martial arts schools called kwans were opened in Seoul. These schools were established by Korean martial artists who had studied primarily in Japan during the Japanese rule. The umbrella term traditional taekwondo typically refers to the martial arts practiced by the kwans during the 1940s and 1950s, though in reality the term “taekwondo” had not yet been coined at that time, and indeed each kwan was practicing their own unique style of martial art. During this timeframe taekwondo was also adopted for use by the South Korean military, which only served to increase its popularity among civilian martial arts schools.
Founded by Master Robertson in 2010, his vision was to create a club that provides affordable and accessible sport to children, young people and adults.
“It’s about offering an opportunity to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get involved.”
– Master Robertson
Raw Taekwondo has expanded from a small class of students in Abronhill, in 2016 Raw opened its full time Taekwondo Centre Fully equipped with mats with classes six times a week.
