You will have to contact them directly with your query using the details provided. Thanks for reading, though!

      Hi L Robb, if you are still looking for a good martial arts class in North Edinburgh, Mr Luke McGowan teaches Tae Kwon Do out of Ainslie Park Leisure Centre on Monday and Fridays.

      Hi Rory,

      All the classes listed are found through online research or by people requesting their classes to be listed, so unfortunately we currently don’t have any further information for you.

      If we do hear anything the class will be added to the list!
