My name is Senior Master Hiron John. I am 8th Degree Black Belt in TaeKwon-Do and 2nd Degree in Aikido. I have been doing martial arts for the past 43 years. I am presently a member with the International Linked TaeKwon-Do Federation. I have won several medals in TaeKwon-Do championships in and outside of England. I am also the Founder of UKTI TaeKwon-Do & the President ILTF Malta.


Senior Master John started Martial Arts when he was 10 years old and then he went on to study Karate, Judo, Boxing, Wing chun, Thai Boxing, Kick Boxing, Aikido and then finally settled in TaeKwon-Do in 1981. Now Master John follows the traditional path laid down by the founder of TaeKwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi.
