L.T.S.I. Taekwondo leading the way
Welcome to the LTSI

Taekwondo is an amazing martial art to learn. There are two forms of Taekwondo: ITF and WT. You can learn more here. Have a look at the history and facts on this site and contact one of our instructors today. All offer FREE trial classes, so you have nothing to lose.
Instructors: Welcome to the Lions Taekwondo Schools Independent, an independent Taekwondo group who are 100% driven by traditional values as laid down by the Founder. We believe that hard work and staying true to the Founder’s last wishes is the only way to go. Our group has no interest in any National Governing Bodies, hence why we are independent. Our reason is simply that we feel NGBs are run on fear and ego and seem to use restrictive practices in their operations. We, as an independent group, remain committed.
At the head of the L.T.S.I. is Senior Master Snow, a registered 8th Degree Black Belt under the ITF Union. Chris, or as many refer to him as Master Snow, has nearly 40 years in the art. He is one of the most active senior Masters around, who even today still trains two hours a day personally. This is why many state he is a man of action, not words. Alongside this, the L.T.S.I. is backed up by Mr. Smith, 6th Degree, who has been with him for over 27 years and Miss Leonard. The three deal with the administration of the L.T.S.I. and make a very dedicated team.
The L.T.S.I. has no Chairman, no board members, and will not entertain one person using authority to govern – all decisions are made by the administration once we are sure it’s the best choice for everyone.
