Seventh-Degree Black-Belt Master Ady Jones started Taekwondo when he was just 11. He started competing in 1992 and went onto win numerous national and world titles. He also trained in the US and South Korea. Sixteen years ago, he retired from the competitive circuit in 2007, but went back and won the men’s lightweight sparring title at the world championships in 2013.
He started his business in Ruabon fitting classes in around his job at Kellogg’s. After a few years of juggling work commitments with the martial arts business, Ady took the decision to leave Kellogg’s in June 2014. This was to concentrate full time on his teaching!
He runs the business with his wife, Sarah, who used to work at MBNA in Chester before moving into the Taekwondo business with her husband in 2016. She’s no slouch when it comes to martial arts – she’s a second-degree black belt herself. This theme runs in the family: Bertie, 15, has held a first-degree black belt since he was 10. Even Poppy, 8, has a red belt! Amongst Ady’s trainees has been Jade Jones, the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medallist in the women’s 57kg category and the 2019 World champion.
Ady’s classes run seven days a week with a full-time centre on Wrexham Industrial Estate and additional locations in Ruabon, Llay, Gresford and Rossett and with classes from ages two up to adult, there is a session for everyone!
Taekwondo is a multi-beneficial discipline which can help improve your fitness and boost your confidence. Other aspects it helps to develop are concentration, listening skills, respect, stress reduction, an appreciation of teamwork and anti-bullying techniques.
