Eagling's Taekwondo

Welcome to Eagling's Taekwondo

skillsDale Eaglings Taekwondo was founded by the Late Dale Eagling in 1971 and is the oldest Taekwondo Club in Tasmania and indeed one of the oldest in Australia. Master Dale Eagling pioneered Taekwondo in Tasmania in 1971 and our clubs have enjoyed strong suppport in the state since that time. In 2011 Eaglings Taekwondo turned 40 years old, a record we are extremely proud of. During that time we have taught over 30,000 Tasmanians the art of Taekwondo.

Our web site should answer all questions you have about our club. We encourage you to try out Taekwondo as a benefit both physically and mentally.

Taekwondo is the ideal sport for the whole family. Taekwondo promotes fitness and reinforces positive social attitudes and values amongst its members. You don't need to be fit to start amd you can start from 4 years old. Eaglings Taekwondo provides a safe and professional environment for you and your family to train. Eaglings Taekwondo is an accredited "child safe" organisation. Contact us today for a program that can be tailored to your personal or family needs. For More information click here

In 2010 Dale Eagling’s Taekwondo received and was presented with an  Approval Certificate from Child Wise as being a “Child Safe Organisation”.  This has been a major task for the club over the last 5 years in reviewing their Member Protection Policy and, in consultation with Child Wise, have now had their Policy Approved. 

Our club is the first organisation in Australia (private or public sector) to receive such a certificate.  The benefits to the club are immeasurable, as it promotes a better understanding within the community and above all provides SAFE places for children to learn the art of Taekwondo.   For more details please contact Child Wise on or speak with Hugh or Angela Eagling about the club's experience.

DETKD is a Child Safe organisation and is committed to the protection of children and young people.  We have a Member Protection Policy in place to ensure a friendly and safe environment in which to experience Taekwondo.

 We provide the framework for a Taekwondo training environment that is fair, supportive and equitable.   A copy of our full Member Protection Policy can be viewed and downloaded from this website. Click here.
