Our Instructors



Master Robert Robertson, founder and Head instructor at Raw Taekwondo Scotland, and has been practicing for over 33 years. Robert found his passion for Taekwondo when his father took him along to a local class that his cousins attended. The next week he joined and the rest is history. 



Raw Taekwondo Scotland Sunday 11am and Kilysth sessions are taught by Mr George Devenney. George is a Taekwondo 3rd Dan with a solid background in traditional training, over 35 years of experience and 20 years teaching experience. 



Rowan tried Taekwondo for the first time in Australia in 2009, because she wanted to know more about the sport that Robert was involved in. She wanted to support Robert and understand as much as possible before she started helping with the club.



Mr Adam Neil is another of our instructors at Raw Taekwondo. He started Taekwondo at 8 years old and it has been a part of him for 18 years. He was inspired from watching all those martial arts films as a youngster.

Hi! My names Faye and i’ve been training in Taekwondo since i was 16. I progressed very quickly and became a black belt at the age of 20 due to committing a lot of my time to the sport during my late teenage years. Taekwondo has taught me to be extremely passionate, have self discipline and most importantly it has shown me to respect others through good conduct and sportsmanship.



I started taekwondo at eight years old and now currently hold a second degree black belt. I have been one of the instructors at Raw taekwondo since December 2017 and have loved every minute. I am grateful for all the different people I have been able to teach over the years, young and old. The coaching team at RAW is world class and I am very proud to be a part of it.



I got offered an amazing opportunity to become a coach at Raw when I turned 16 and also this was when I achieved my black belt (first Dan). Becoming a coach at Raw was one of my best decisions that I have made as it helped my confidence grow more and more with each training session. It was also a dream of mine to work with young people and Raw made that dream possible for me.


Kate started training as an adult in 2005 with her son at a family club Spalding Kickers, England.  Now a 4th Dan and C Class Poomsae Referee, she has since moved to Scotland and had the opportunity to train at some great clubs.
