About Us


Taekwondo4Fitness is a family-friendly martial arts school based in Košice in Slovakia, offering martial arts classes, fitness, discipline, self-defence, online and venue-based for kids and adults. Students and their parents can be confident of being professionally trained to the highest standards and in a fun and controlled environment.

Taekwondo4Fitness was founded in May 2019 with British Taekwondo, the largest governing body in the United Kingdom. In March 2021, it became a member of the Independent Taekwondo Organisation. The ITO runs as an independent free community.

It is not affiliated with any association or alliance and works with Korean Combat Martial Arts, ITF HQ and WT Kukkiwon HQ. It is not bound to any instructions of higher institutions and can decide in a free and well-being way to its members.

All good martial artists and Taekwondo practitioners live by the code of ethics and are expected to continuously maintain the Five Tenets of Taekwondo which are etiquette, modesty, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit.

The five tenets are a guide for a student’s behaviour – inside and outside the dojang. As a Taekwondo Instructor, it is my commitment to preserving these principles.

A strong Team specialized in Fitness, Martial Arts and Nutrition

My wife and I are very passionate about fitness, nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle. We work hard to achieve our health and fitness goals. Continued professional development (CPD) and further training are crucial for staying up-to-date with our knowledge and skillset.


My martial arts journey started in 1989 when I was 13 years old. For the past 30 years, I was practising Taekwondo in different schools across Europe. I trained in countries like Germany, Austria, Slovakia and the United Kingdom and had great mentors who taught me the various aspects of Taekwondo.

My goal is to inspire and motivate the youth and adults to become more active, make healthier choices, and share the experience of shaping oneself into a better person each and every day. I became a Taekwondo Instructor to help my students achieve their health and fitness goals with martial arts.

I deliver fun and engaging martial arts classes for all ages and abilities online and venue-based in Košice, Slovakia. I also offer 1:1 Coaching to work with you on specific areas to help you achieve your goals, for example, improving the required skills to pass a belt promotion exam. This is also an excellent opportunity for beginners to enable them to get started more quickly.

Specific areas are, for example

  • Taekwondo basics (stances, hand and foot techniques)
  • Taegeuk Poomsae
  • One-Step-Sparring
  • Self-Defence
  • Korean Terminology 
  • Fitness and flexibility
  • etc.

Health Benefits

You do not just pay for Taekwondo! You invest in the fitness, health and opportunities that this sport provides to help you develop the attributes that will serve you throughout your life and allow you to endow others’ lives.
Taekwondo is an excellent form of exercise and fantastic martial art to practise, bringing health improvements such as balance, flexibility, stamina, strength and posture.
It reduces the risk of developing several diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition to the physical health improvements, Taekwondo is also known to benefit mental health through increased confidence, improved self-esteem, focus, concentration levels and self-discipline.

If you want to get fit and lose weight, you need to fix your diet! You can’t overtrain a lousy diet, and eventually, the bad eating habits will translate into your health.
