Kapiti Coast


Mr Woodill began training at the Waikanae ITKD club since its beginning in 2005. He joined with his son Calum and since then my Wife Sue and Daughter Alana have also joined.


Mrs Woodill started Taekwon-Do at the Waikanae Club in 2007, with her daughter Alana, and with Mr Greg Christie as our instructor. Her husband Chris and her son Calum were already students at the Waikanae club, so training became a twice weekly family event.

She completed my first Dan Black Belt training in 2011 and in 2013, she and Chris became the new Instructors at the Kapiti Coast Taekwon-Do club.

The club has a family focus where parents/guardians ate encouraged to join in with their children''s training, learning about Taekwon-Do.

Mr Meek originally started Taekwon-Do as a teenager at the Khandallah club in 1995 under Master Patterson. After a few years break, he then returned back to the Khandallah club in the early 2000''s as an adult where he has trained ever since until recently opening the Lyall Bay club in 2020.
