WA Chief Instructor Dane Meade

Dane Meade commenced his TaeKwonDo training under Master Vernon Low in 1983 in Adelaide, South Australia, and actively trained at the Woodville, Port Adelaide, and Henley Beach branches. On his family’s move to Perth, Western Australia, he transferred his training to study under one of Perth’s most well-known and prominent TaeKwonDo instructors of the time, Senior Instructor Michael Chew.

In 1987, Instructor Dane Meade was promoted to 1st Dan Black Belt. He assisted Senior Instructor Chew with teaching classes at the Morley, Duncraig, Melville, and Midland branches. With his passion and dedication for the martial art, Instructor Dane Meade moved from teaching TaeKwonDo at the Morley SHS gym to opening the Beechboro branch in 1994 and continued to open many more training centres across Perth. In 2003, on the retirement of his Instructor, Michael Chew, Senior Instructor Dane Meade accepted the role of Perth Head Instructor.

In 2020, after 37 years of continuous and dedicated TaeKwonDo training, Chief Instructor Dane Meade was promoted to the rank of 5th Dan Black Belt by Master Instructor Vernon Low and the First TaeKwonDo Australia organisation – the first Western Australian Instructor to be promoted to this prominent rank.       

​Chief Instructor Dane's committed focus is to ensure that traditional martial art standards are not eroded and that respected, time-honoured benchmarks are upheld under his Western Australian leadership.
