Cynon Valley Tang Soo Do

We’re a family friendly club that caters for all abilities. Whether you're a beginner or just want to improve your fitness and learn self-defence.

Operating as usual


Tang Soo Everyone, following up from yesterday’s message.

Firstly you should not attend if either you are feeling unwell or if you are displaying any of the published symptoms of COVID 19.
There will be a questionnaire which we will require you to complete upon entry to the venue. Students should arrive in uniform, Please note that all children must be dropped off and collected after class.

Temperature checks will be carried out, note that all students must use the supplied hand sanitiser upon entry and exit. Face masks are not at present compulsory but you can wear them if you feel more comfortable doing so.

Class registers will be undertaken for traceability purposes. There is to be full social distancing during class therefore there will be no sparring or self defence. Hand techniques, kicking and forms will be worked on.

Finally please ensure you arrive a minimum of 5 minutes before class. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow.


Tang Soo Everyone, hope you’re all well.
As previously advised classes are returning on Monday at the normal times and Wednesday at 6:30 for the little Dragons And 7pm for everyone else.

There are certain rules that we will all have to follow, I will update you tomorrow on what you are to expect.


Students hope you’re all well. Can you please forward me your mobile numbers please, I need them to create a WhatsApp group. If you don’t want to message them to me please send them to Mr Jones 07715 703700.
Tang Soo.


Hello everyone hope you’re all still well. As we are slowly moving towards Post Lockdown, classes are still likely to a be little way off yet. However in preparation, if you would like any refresher videos of any forms, just let me know and I’ll sort one out for you.
If you’d also like to send either me or Master Butler a video if you’re having a little trouble with one then feel free.
Hang in there.

Tang Soo
Mr Jones


Evening everyone, just checking in on you all.
I hope you’re all fit, well and staying safe. I’d be grateful if you could send a little reply so we know you’re ok. Also it would be appreciated if you could post a photo of a proud moment you have experienced during your time training in Tang Soo do.
Thank you and Tang Soo !


Dear All

Apologies for the short notice, but this has been a very fluid situation, and advice has been changing daily.

Following todays announcements with the school closures, we feel that it would be irresponsible to continue class for the present time.

We are therefore cancelling all classes, until the schools return to normal. I am sure you will understand this is for the safety of us all, both students and teachers alike.

For those of you who were scheduled for testing we are really sorry, and will look as this as soon as some normality returns.

Stay safe and look after your loved ones, in this very difficult times.

Grateful if you could share please.

Tang Soo !!


Please note the effects of storm Dennis thankfully missed the Y.M.C.A. and classes will be running as normal this evening.
Thank you.

For those of you who would like the details of Ryan’s funeral.


Information for competitors.


I write this with great sadness in my heart. We have recently learned that one of our senior club members Ryan Hamer was involved in a car accident in the early hours of Sunday morning and has since tragically passed away.

Ryan had been a student at our club from the age of 8, and through his hard work and dedication, over the years he worked through the grades eventually attaining the rank of 2nd Dan Black Belt. He became a well-respected member and friend of the club and with his supportive and pleasant nature had a positive influence over many of his fellow students and friends.

Ryan had recently taken some time away from training to concentrate on his love of music which indeed was his passion; he played the drums in his own band “Rapture”, who our thoughts are also with at this difficult time.

On behalf of everyone at the club, we would like to offer our deepest condolences to Ryan’s family and friends.

Ryan’s family have requested that in his memory, people help with raising awareness of the importance of blood donation, and to ensure the Hospitals Blood Banks have enough stock for emergencies such as this.

Taking around 30 mins of your time, you can make such a difference, please book via

RIP Ryan xx
