The Pine Rivers club is one of the longest-running clubs in the Bai Rui school. It has been operating in the Strathpine/Petrie area for over 20 years and uses the Pine Rivers Special School Hall which has easy access and parking.
The instructors of the club are Master Rob Taylor (7th Dan) and Master Jan Taylor (7th Dan) who have been part of the Bai Rui school for even longer than the Pine Rivers club has been around. Students who attend the Pine Rivers club are afforded the unique opportunity to train under not one, but TWO of the highest-ranking ITF Taekwon-Do seniors in the country.
Masters Rob & Jan Taylor were able to learn the art first-hand from Senior Master Charles Birch (Bai Rui Taekwon-Do Founder) in their many years of training as his students. They have both trained under First Grand Master Rhee and Senior Grand Master C.E. Sereff, who were the first two Grand Masters appointed by the founder of ITF Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi. Master Rob Taylor has also participated in a seminar conducted by the General himself. They continue to attend seminars and liaise with practitioners nationally and internationally to further their knowledge of the Art. The benefits of these experiences along with their continued commitment is now passed on to their students.
The Club also teaches an Adaptive Taekwon-Do program designed to engage, challenge and promote good health, physical and mental fitness specifically for children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities who would like to learn a martial art.
Both classes are structured so that know matter your age or ability you can learn at your own pace and achieve your own personal goals. Students will learn the mental and physical aspects of Taekwon-Do along with self-control, confidence, focus and self-defence.
