Coalville Taekwondo (LE67): Learning a new skill is always rewarding and the martial arts are a popular choice these days. Taking up something like Taekwondo enables you to build your confidence, strengthen your mind and body, enhance your self-respect and learn some valuable self-defence techniques. Since being developed in Korea during the 1940's, this more modern martial art has grown in popularity.
Due to its rather more physical aspects, Taekwondo is perhaps more suited to the younger person in Coalville and is particularly suitable for children as it is great for developing self-discipline and respect for others. Older adults may find it somewhat too demanding unless they are particularly fit and active. However those who take up Taekwondo in Coalville at a young age will find they can easily carry it on into older adulthood. The less agile of you might consider something softer like Tai Chi.
Taekwondo was only developed fairly recently in Korea (1945). In Seoul, a group of Korean martial arts fanatics established some new schools which they named "kwans", practicing a combination of martial arts techniques. The emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially head-height kicks, fast kicking strategies and jumping/spinning kicks, and it was later given the name; Taekwondo, meaning "the way of the foot and fist".
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.
For the people of Coalville who wish to learn a martial art, a top priority is the aspect of self-defence. Since this is a key principle of Taekwondo, it is easy to see the appeal of this particular sport. With the added bonus of learning self-restraint and having a deep respect for others, signing up for a local Coalville Taekwondo class seems to be a no brainer.
These self-defence techniques may at some point come in handy in the outside world, although it is more likely that you will only be using them within a monitored class environment. However it's a nice feeling knowing that you can always defend yourself if you need to.
