The Academy was founded in September 1999 by Master Derek Sumner. Since then Livingwell has grown into a nationally and internationally recognised club, renowned for its' performance on both a regional and national level.


Now boasting over 300 members at some of the most desirable locations in the south-east, Livingwell is continuing to grow at an astonishing rate. Our main training centre is in Horley but other venues include Horsham, Reigate, Copthorne and our London based Force 5 Division at Abbeywood, Belvedere, Blackheath and Orpington. 


Master Derek Sumner has over 30 years experience and is a qualified Kukkiwon 7th Dan Master Instructor who is also a qualified Poomsae International referee in Martial Arts and fitness training. Livingwell Taekwondo Academy now has over 10 approved instructors,  fully qualified First Aiders who are all DBS checked.

We have one 8th Dan Grand Master, one 7th Dan Master, three 5th Dan Masters, two 4th Dan grade instructors

and more who are all Kukkiwon Dan grade certified. 


We believe that everyone has the ability to progress and become a Black belt. Our qualified Instructors will work with you and your ability to ensure that you receive the best guidance and support. From Child to Adult, from Para to Freestyle, no matter your ability - anything is achievable. 


Please check out our Club Introduction Video (below) for a presentation of our training. Further videos of public demonstrations and National competitions can be found via our Club Video link on our website. 


We are not just a Martial Arts club but a sporting family. We welcome you to come and visit us and join in, so you can be the best you can be!
