About Us | Mains Martial Arts Neath

Lauren Main

My Name is Lauren Main. I am the founder of Main’s Martial Arts. Firstly I would like to welcome you to our website and I hope your TaeKwon-Do journey begins with us today, I can assure you that you will be in good hands with Mains Martial Arts and we look forward to welcoming you to our Martial Arts family.

I am currently a 4th degree black belt in ITF TaeKwon-Do and a recognised international instructor. I started my taekwondo journey when I was eight years old. I joined my local taekwondo club called in Fleur De Lys, Blackwood, South Wales. My reason for starting Taekwon-do was because I was heavily bullied in school and I wanted to learn how to defend myself and build my self-confidence.

I fell in love with taekwondo instantly and started competing across the UK in many competitions. I became multiple times ITF British, Welsh, Scottish and English champion within my category and as a result I was selected to be a member of the ITF Welsh Taekwon-do Team, Representing Wales provided opportunities to travel and compete in some amazing countries such as Uzbekistan, Croatia, Estonia and many more. I then established myself on the international circuit and become a World and European medallist.

My dream as a child was to become an Olympian, not necessary in taekwondo but since I established that I could kick people the head pretty good then why not start with that sport. I took part in the 2012 Olympic fighting chance program which allowed me win a bronze medal the BTCB British TKD international championships and compete next Olympians including MBE Jade Jones, Bianca Walkden and many more but unfortunately the dream ended as I had to stop training in 2011 due to sustaining a serious injury.

In 2016 I decided to return to taekwondo. I knew at that point that my Olympic dream was just a dream but maybe I could help another person achieve their dreams, so I become an instructor and opened Mains Martial Arts.
After returning to Taekwondo and watching my own students compete ( and win) I knew my competition days was not over just yet. I am currently serving in the royal navy reserves and I was selected represent the Royal Navy in taekwondo and compete in the Armed Forces championships. I became Armed Forces champion and royal navy champion in 2017 and 2018 WT and ITF taekwondo, for my success I was awarded the armed forces in Wales award 2019.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TEACHING AND passing on my knowledge to my students nearly as much as I love learning taekwondo.
I aim to make everyone who joins Main Martial Arts very welcome and a part of our taekwondo family instantly. My lessons are fun, exciting and varied. I believe my classes have an edge because I know what is needed to make a champion, as a result I was awarded NPT PASS Coach of the year 2020 and have been selected for coach of the year 2022 and Club of the year 2022..
Martial Arts has opened many doors and provided life changing opportunities for myself.
It could do the same for you!!
