Former British full-contact Taekwondo champion and now professional stage, TV and film actor, William Mickleburgh, is offering one month of free martial arts classes for men, women and children of all ages at the Alnwick Squash Club (Aerobic Suite) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

William is travelling to Germany in a couple of weeks to take physical and theory exams under a top panel of Korean Grandmasters from the Kukkiwon World Taekwondo headquarters in Korea. He will be testing alongside some of Europe’s top Taekwondo exponents and hopes to qualify for Seventh Dan Black Belt, making him one of the highest ranked Kukkiwon certified exponents in the country.

Originally from Bath in the west of England, William took up residence in Northumberland several years ago and now has a young family growing up in the area.

William now hopes that, by offering free classes, he can introduce Taekwondo in Northumberland and establish a successful club in the region. Call William on 07812 173226.
