Taekwondo Bognor Regis
Bognor Regis Taekwondo (PO21): A Korean martial art that was created in the 1940's, Taekwondo has grown considerably in popularity since then. If you would like to learn a bit of self-defence, bolster your self-esteem, boost your confidence and develop your body and mind, Taekwondo may be precisely the activity for you.
Taekwondo is an ideal sport for children in Bognor Regis, because it teaches self-discipline and a respect for others. Its more physical aspects make it more suited to younger people. It could prove too taxing for some older adults, but shouldn't be a problem for those who are already fit and active. However those in Bognor Regis who take up Taekwondo at a young age, will find that carrying it on into older adulthood is not a problem. If you consider yourself among the less agile, you could try something like Tai Chi which is much softer.
Based mainly around kicking manoeuvres like rapid kicking methods, head-height kicks and spinning/jumping kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of various martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts specialists in new schools known as "Kwans" in the 1940's and 1950's. These "Kwans" had the names Mooduk Kwan, Jido Kwan, Changmu Kwan, Songmu Kwan and Chungdo Kwan.
Popular all over the world Taekwondo now has over sixty million students. Joining your local Bognor Regis Taekwondo club or class is a great way to get involved in this sport which has even been in the Olympic Games since the Sydney Games of 2000. Whilst nobody would seriously expect you to get to Olympic standard, you can certainly be one of the best Taekwondo exponents in Bognor Regis.
For many people in Bognor Regis, it is the self-defence aspect of Taekwondo that is the most interesting. This isn't hard to believe when you think about the elevated levels of violence witnessed in city centres day after day. However, exercising a good helping of self-restraint and having respect for others goes hand in hand with the self-defence principles of Taekwondo.
These self-defence techniques may at some point come in useful in your day to day life, although it is much more likely you will solely be using them within a supervised class setting. Nevertheless it is a wonderful feeling knowing the fact that you'll always be in a position to defend yourself if you have to.
