David Murphy began his 45 years of training in martial arts with Judo at the age of nine, where he stayed for  four years. He then moved on to Karate and over a period of time studied four different styles. During this time he also trained in JuJitso. He settled with Tae Kwon Do at the age of 22 and has stayed with this discipline ever since.

 

During his time training in Tae Kwon Do he entered and won various Scottish, English and British titles, and at the peak of his years competing won three World Championships in 1988 ,  1991  and 1994.   He  founded the Coatbridge club which has been running for the past twenty five years. The Club has produced many World, European, British, and Scottish Champions as well as winning the Scottish Club Championship 13 years in a row.  Mr Murphy has also been involved and responsible for coaching the Scottish team who won gold at the last World Championship which was held in Birmingham in 2007 .

 

Mr Murphy states that Taekwon-do is first and foremost a Martial Art and competing is only a small part of this discipline. It is the individuals choice whether or not to compete. There are many all round benefits from regular training including self defence, fitness or a way of boosting confidence,  all can be achieved through Taekwon-do.

What Is Taekwon-Do?

Taekwon-Do is the scientific use of the body in self defence – a body that has gained the ultimate use of its facilities through intensive, physical and mental training.

Originating in Korea, Taekwon-Do was developed in its present form in the last century and inaugurated in 1955 by its founder and head of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), Major General Choi Hong Hi.

Translated from Korean, ‘Tae’ means to jump , Kick or smash with the foot; ‘Kwon’ means to punch or destroy with the hand or fist; and ‘Do’ means art way or method. Therefore Taekwon-Do literally means ‘the art of hand and foot’.
