Thank You for Supporting Your UKTC Club

21st May, 2020
 Dear Students/Parents,

Our dedicated team of Instructors would like to thank our members who have been taking part in our online Little Tiger Cubs, Active Tigers and Taekwondo-Do classes.
Our Zoom classes have been especially well received and we are delighted with the fantastic feedback we are receiving from students. Interacting with students in our online classes and individual Zoom lessons has added an exciting new dimension to the class experience.
We are thankful and humbled by the ongoing commitment and support our members have shown to the UKTC and Little Tiger Cubs. It has meant a great deal to our Instructors through these very challenging months.
During April and May, we wanted to thank everyone for their support by offering Virtual Gift Vouchers for both months. We are delighted that many of our members have enjoyed redeeming them to participate in our special online events. Unfortunately, as this period of disruption is running longer than we anticipated, we are unable to offer any further vouchers. If there is anyone who still has vouchers to redeem, please kindly do this by 30th June 2020. If you would like to redeem any voucher value at our UKTC Shop, please contact your club instructor directly. They will be happy to assist you.
You can also redeem our Virtual Gift Vouchers by participating in our online Pre-Grading Seminars, online Black Belt Training, online Gradings and Assessments, online 1-2-1 Private Training sessions and some of our special online events we have planned in the next few weeks.
If you would prefer not to redeem the vouchers but instead re-invest their value in your clubs future, please be assured that we will use this generous financial support to continue improving and offering the very best online content available.
Thank you again for all your wonderful support.
Stay fit and healthy.
Kind regards,
Master Stephen Rooney

Breaking News - Online Grading Opportunity with Master Stephen Rooney

22nd March, 2020
If you missed your grading in March please read the online offer below:

Online Grading Opportunity with Master Stephen Rooney
Limited Time Offer – Online Gradings for Active Tigers & UKTC Taekwon-Do students

Dear Parents/Students,

As the recent closure of halls descended quickly on our clubs, we were unable to conduct our quarterly gradings for some of our students. In particular, we were unable to conduct gradings for our students in Inverclyde, Erskine, Perthshire, Balfron and Lancashire. We are very disappointed to have let down our students and hope the following offer will be of interest.

We would like to offer the opportunity to test for everyone whose scheduled gradings were cancelled. This includes students who missed their recent gradings in other areas. As it is currently not safe to conduct in the normal way we would like to offer the opportunity to be assessed online.

Anyone who has missed their opportunity to test with Master Stephen Rooney can apply for an online assessment by sending an email to or by sending a pm (private message) to the UKTC Facebook page or to your instructor/club Facebook page.

Please state the student name, current rank (belt) and club (venue/town) where you/they normally train.

You will receive a reply email or pm stating what exercises you should demonstrate in a short video or series of videos (30 secs to 90 secs). This can be done using your phone and sending privately by Facebook pm or by email.

If the assessment is successful, you will be invited to make payment and will receive your new belt/tags and certificate by standard post. Grading books will be stamped at a future UKTC event.

The cost of assessment, which includes postage costs, will be £50. Details of how to make a bank transfer will be supplied on successful assessment for the new higher rank. Payment will only be required if the assessment is successful.

Breaking News – The UKTC are creating an Online Tuition Programme in response to the Covid-19 Virus. All classes will continue as normal.

12th March, 2020
Breaking News – The UKTC are creating an Online Tuition Programme

It’s important at this time that we continue to communicate with our parents and students at UKTC and Little Tiger Cubs. We are aware of the current situation and wish to confirm that our classes will continue as normal.

In response to the potential future disruption caused by the Covid-19 Virus, the UKTC are currently creating an Online Tuition Programme for students who may miss classes in the next few months.

Dear Student/Parent,

The UKTC would like to assure all members that we are currently working on a number of online training options for all students who are unable to attend classes or whose club may be temporarily affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19).

These online training videos and live feeds will cover all aspects of the training received in a normal class which will ensure that all members can continue with their learning and development in the period that any disruption is caused.

We will continue to update everyone in the coming weeks and would ask that everyone continues to follow the government and NHS guidelines of regularly washing their hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol gel, as well as coughing or sneezing in to a tissue then discarding in a bucket immediately.

During this period of potential disruption we would ask that all members continue their training as normal, using the online training platform where necessary.

If any student, Little Tiger Cubs or Taekwon-Do, is likely to miss a number of classes, please be assured that the UKTC will provide complimentary classes and events to help make up the lost hours of training. The potential disruption which may be created by the Covid-19 virus is likely to be limited and therefore the UKTC kindly asks all members to continue their membership as normal, safe in the knowledge that the highest level of service and tuition will be provided.

Please keep checking our Facebook pages, Instagram account and Website page for updates.
