The AFTA was established in 1984, under the guidance of Master Instructor John Callegari. Whilst keeping all of the traditional values of Tae Kwon-Do, Master Callegari set out to create a dynamic, realistic, and effective form of Tae Kwon-Do in Australia, and thus the AFTA was formed.
The AFTA offers its students traditional Tae Kwon-Do techniques, including striking, and kicking; flexibility, fitness and strength training; along with effective and realistic self defence.
AFTA classes are conducted for both children and adults, and focus on practicing realistic techniques with strength and precision. The AFTA is constantly evolving and provides students with the opportunity to attend tournaments and seminars, to allow them to expand their Martial Arts knowledge.
The AFTA has training centres in New South Wales and Queensland with the Academy Head Quarters based in Sydney. It is the goal of your Instructor to provide you with the most comprehensive, powerful, and effective Freestyle Tae Kwon-Do training available in the country.
AFTA Instructors hold Working With Children Checks and current First Aid Certificates. They are also all registered members of the Australian governing body of Taekwondo – Australian Taekwondo.
AFTA Black Belts hold international accreditation through the Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, Korea. All AFTA Black Belts are registered members of the Australian governing body of Taekwondo – Australian Taekwondo.
