Your KBT Team
Chief Master Steve Plant
5th Degree Master Instructor
"I'm 54 this year and still don't feel any older physically, than I did at age 20. I make sure that I train everyday and keep my weight down and muscle tone up. Life is all about eating sensibly and enjoying the sport/training that we do. Your body is a gift from God and you should do everything possible to maintain it. Keeping your flexibility is an important key to a full and long life. Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan is our style of training. It has served me well; and it will you too."
"Personally I think that I am one of the lucky people . I have a wonderful family ( Three kids and five grandkids) loyal friends and Instructors. I am in good shape and feel great."
"On top of that I'm co-owner of the biggest martial arts academy in the area. I have fantastic students both adults and juniors that are so supportive they make me very proud."
"We like to train with dedication here at KBT. We are passionate about getting results and helping the people that have put their faith in us."
"Every Black Belt student that we create is another success story that we will brag about. We have lots of success stories. All ages, all sizes."
Master Nicola Hurcombe
5th Degree Chief Instructor
Speciality: Building Confidence
Miss Hurcombe's calm and gentle nature ensures that new students young and old are made to feel comfortable and reassured when starting a martial arts programme.
She has been training in Taekwondo for 19 years and is also a qualified aerobics instructor.
Her sunny personality means that students from 5 to 65 years old can take their first steps towards Black Belt in a fun and easy manner.
This enables the building blocks of confidence of each individual student to grow and be nurtured by all the KBT staff.
Master Nicola Hurcombe is the BEST. We have created many qualified Instructors at KBT and of course, in time they move on to other things. However.......
Miss Hurcombe is the one person we could never replace. She is the leading force of KBT.
Senior Instructor Ben Cheeseman

Instructor of the Year 2013
Speciality: Educating and Competition Fighting
Mr Cheeseman is our gentle giant. 6ft 4inches of muscle with the speed and agility of a lion. Mr Cheeseman is KBT's iron man!
However, he is also a great technician and has a patient and friendly manner that is appreciated by all of the students training at our centre. You know that you are in good hands and working with a true professional when you are being taught by this fantastic all rounder.
Mr Cheeseman likes to travel and in doing so he has gained life skills,knowledge and experience. If you are going to be taught martial arts by someone then who better than someone that has experienced life to the full and is able to share these experiences.
