Whangarei Central

The Whangarei Central branch of Pacific Sun Taekwondo is the organisation’s longest running school, operating out of Whangarei Girls High School in Lupton Avenue since the mid 1990s.

Senior Instructor Dion McCracken (pictured) has been the Branch Instructor of Whangarei Central since 2003 and has been training with Pacific Sun Taekwondo since 1997. He passed his 1st Dan Black Belt examination in 2002, his 2nd Dan examination in 2006 and his 3rd Dan in 2011.

The Whangarei Central Branch runs two training nights per week, with a seperate Junior and Senior class and also hosts a monthly “advanced training” for Blue Belt students and up.

The branch is in the fortunate position of having seven additional Instructors and Assistant Instructors, providing a high quality learning environment for its students.

Senior Instructor Dion, along with Instructors Sam Butturini and Chris Dick are also Protect Self Defence Accredited Trainers (Level 1) and are qualified to incorporate the fundamentals of this unique and highly effective reality based self defence system in class.
