Bolton Taekwondo (BL1): Originally developed in Korea during the 1940's and 50's, Taekwondo is a fast combatative sport that has become increasingly popular over the last 30 years or so. For those of you who wish to bolster your self-esteem, strengthen your mind and body, learn some self-defence moves and boost your confidence, Taekwondo could be the ideal hobby or fitness activity.
It has to be said that Taekwondo can be quite physically demanding, which might put off the older and less agile people in Bolton from taking this up. To be fair, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are children and the younger generation, but certainly older people who are in good physical health can easily take part and get benefits from this activity.
With its beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently developed of the martial arts and involves mainly kicking moves such as head-height kicks, spinning/jumping kicks and fast kicking methods. It began when schools called "kwans" were established by a group of Korean martial artists in Seoul, South Korea.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Bolton and all around the world, with over 60 million practitioners worldwide. Joining a local Bolton Taekwondo club or class is a good way to get involved in this sport which has even featured in the Olympic Games since the Sydney Games of 2000. While nobody would expect you to get to Olympic standard, you can certainly be one of the best Taekwondo exponents in Bolton.
