My name is Ciaran McDonald M.A., M.Ed. and I'm passionate about Taekwon-do 'Self-Defence' & 'Patterns Applications'.
I have a long background in education and martial arts. I've taught at many of the UK's leading universities and I believe I know 'how people learn'.
I produce books, videos, and courses for instructors and students who want to train effective Taekwon-do self-defence.

Ciaran McDonald M.A., M.Ed.
I am the head instructor of Oxfordshire Taekwon-do and Didcot Old School Karate Jutsu.
I am a 4th Degree in ITF Taekwon-do, A black belt Shidoin in Koryu Uchinadi, A blue belt in Brazilian Jujutsu and I am currently struggling to get my black belt in Kickboxing. However, I have studied many other arts too!
I have spent the last 10 years researching and collecting the hidden applications and lost self defence practices of the Taekwondo-do patterns. I have found these in other older arts and have brought them back to share with my Taekwondo-do brethren.
It is my mission to help 10,000 people in the Taekwon-do world discover the great self-defence in their patterns by 2025.
