Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia is a family run Taekwondo organization we are100% Australian owned. We Instruct traditional Taekwondo (“original Taekwondo” “Chan-Hon Taekwon-do”) a style of martial art with all the original patterns ( forms, Hyung`s). Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia take pride in living by the traditional tenets of Taekwondo.

Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia Our philosophy is to teach you and your family a traditional taekwondo style (“original Taekwondo” “Chan-Hon Taekwon-do”) in a fun family friendly environment. Our instructing style will bring confidence and assurance that you will be able to progress in the art no matter what level of fitness or experience you begin with.; you can be assured that you will be getting the best instruction possible.

The following statement is thought provoking and very true! 

Martial Arts should be thought of as an insurance policy in self defence and self protection 

Most people will insure their cars, health, property, and possessions, but we generally do not give the same thought to ourselves in the same way in regards to awareness of personal safety. 

Mums, dads, brothers, sisters, grandparents, daughters and sons all going about daily life we never know when our safety could be put at risk.

Regular exercise has many benefits improving cardiovascular health, improve fitness levels, body toning, increase confidence, coordination and flexibility and improved sleeping patterns. Learning new skills improves the memory keeping it sharp and focused and is known to alleviate stress levels. There are many benefits and reasons why taking up a martial art is beneficial to your life, being street wise and learning how to defend yourself against an attacker or bully is something that everyone should know how to do safely and effectively. 

At Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia we ensure that you and your family get the best possible experience from your classes.

Ensuring a safe and effective warm up followed by stretching routines carried out under the guidance of Master Instructor Trevor Sayers 5th Dan Black Belt who is  a fully qualified Personal Trainer.

The Benefits of Taekwondo for Children

 In the modern age many children spend a lot of time on electronic equipment encouraging children to take up an activity that they enjoy outside of the home and school has many benefits. 

Sometimes in life you have to be able to jump in and have the ability to do things yourself independently.

Taekwondo will help children develop self-confidence, Discipline, Respect, Concentration, Strength, Balance and Flexibility.

Self-confidence comes from learning techniques required to perform particular moves, such as stances kicks punches and blocks.

Discipline and Respect comes from students learning to follow instructions given to them by their instructors.

Respect comes through the student needing to show respect to their fellow student, their instructors while training.

Respect starts at the doors of the Dojang as all students and instructors no matter their rank are expected to Bow as they enter and leave the Dojang as a sign of respect for having somewhere to train.

Concentration comes also from learning and growing in self-confidence as concentration is needed in everything we as martial artists do.

Strength, Balance and Flexibility comes from our training.

As we train we not only train our mind we also train our body to be strong, balanced and flexible.

A body that is Strong, Balanced, and Flexible combined with a mind that has the Self-confidence, Discipline, Respect and Concentration 

Can achieve their goals!

Master Instructor and Founder
Trevor Sayers
5th Dan Black Belt Instructor

Master Instructor Trevor’s love of martial arts stems from his childhood growing up watching all the great martial artists on television and films, starting back in England back in the 70’s with a short period in Judo. 

In the early 90’s in Australia Master Instructor Trevor began classes in Kickboxing and Mauy Thai; then ventured out to find the martial art that was to become his passion; Traditional Taekwondo otherwise known as “original Taekwondo” “Chan-Hon Taekwon-do”

Master Trevor`s  dedication and passion and noted natural ability for the art saw him rise up the ranks to 1st Dan Black Belt in March 2011 and promoted to Branch Instructor in Logan

In 2013 Master Instructor Trevor was promoted to 2nd Dan Black Belt & 3rd Dan Black Belt in 2015 with promotion to Regional Instructor with many years of instructing in the Logan and South Brisbane Region bringing many students through from White Belt to Black Belt.

Journey to and Beyond Black Belt 

We encourage our students every step of the way in their Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia journey.

 We instill in our students that by reaching black belt rank this does not mean that the journey has ended rather that it has only just begun.

Reaching the rank black belt is just the start of a journey that can last a lifetime and with it brings a lifetime of memories, achievements, and goals that all students should all be proud of.

Instructors at Yong-gi Taekwondo Australia will encourage students to reach higher levels and confidence within the art.

At Yong-gi taekwondo Australia our Black Belt ranks have an age requirement that we follow without exception which are as follows:

Junior Black Belt: - ages 10 yrs-14 yrs (Black Belt with white stripe that runs the length of the belt)


Yudanja Black Belt: - ages 14 yrs-17 yrs (Complete Black Belt)


1st Dan Black Belt: - ages 17 yrs plus (Embroidered Black Belt with Dan Rank)


What does Yong-gi mean?

Yong-gi is translated from Korean as meaning "Courage" this tenet we believe is the start of any journey through life it is a predecessor to change which creates strength of character.

Courage is not the absence of fear; it is the ability to achieve one’s goals despite fear

Real courage, from a martial arts point of view, should be in terms of the willingness to defend justice and truth, regardless of danger, personal interest or cost.

The stand tall in the face of corruption and speak out when wrong is evident, and take proactive steps to rectify the situation, be it at club level, within an organisation, within your community or within a nation.

The preparedness to sacrifice is the underlying quality of a true martial artist. No great human achievement can ever be conquered without some personal sacrifice.

We would love you to join us in this courageous and wonderful journey !
