Bromsgrove Taekwondo (B61): If you have been looking around Bromsgrove for some ideas for a new hobby, you might want to consider Taekwondo as a possibility. Practising this skill will enable you to learn some self-defence techniques, boost your confidence, strengthen your mind and body and enhance your self-respect. Since being developed in Korea during the 1940's, this more modern martial art has grown in popularity.
Because Taekwondo has quite high physical demands, it is perhaps more suited to the younger generation in Bromsgrove. That is not to say that older people cannot participate in this activity, but simply that there may be other martial arts that are more suited to the less agile among us. Tai Chi would be the perfect example.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently developed of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. Some innovative new schools called "kwans" were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts enthusiasts, mixing a number of various martial arts techniques. The focus of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially head kicks, fast kicking styles and spinning/jumping kicks, and it was later given the name; Taekwondo, meaning "the way of the foot and fist". Today Bromsgrove Taekwondo classes adhere to this tradition.
With over sixty million people participating in Taekwondo classes all around the globe, this has certainly become an extremely popular activity, and if you become really expert at the sport you might even one day qualify for the Olympic Games, of which it has been a part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
A key aspect of Taekwondo is self-defence, and of course this is one of the main reasons that people in Bromsgrove join classes and take up the sport. There has been a worrying increase in violent behaviour in recent years and this is especially prevalent in town and city centres around Worcestershire and the UK in general. The beauty of Taekwondo though, is that it also teaches self-discipline and respect for others, not such common qualities in Bromsgrove nowadays.
Your First Class: If Taekwondo is not something that you've ever done before, you will doubtless be wondering what to expect from your first lesson should you decide to sign up. Different Taekwondo schools in Bromsgrove have different ideas about this but roughly; you will take part in a 15-20 minute warm-up, you will do a bit of technical training, you will learn some forms, you will practice sparring techniques and finally you will warm-down to get your body back into a state of relaxation.
Bromsgrove Taekwondo classes are not just intended for the people of Bromsgrove itself but also for devotees from Redditch, Sidemoor, Hewell Lane, Hewell Grange, Stoke Heath, Worcester, Foxlydiate, Aston Fields, Stoke Prior, Burcot, Lowes Hill, Tardebigge, Finstall, Lickey End, Dodford, Blackwell and other Worcestershire locations.
Everybody who is a member of a Taekwondo club in Bromsgrove or any place else in the United Kingdom, is also required to join British Taekwondo, which is the governing body of the sport.
