Daventry Taekwondo (NN11): A Korean martial art that was developed during the nineteen forties, Taekwondo has grown considerably in popularity since then. If you'd like to boost your confidence, bolster your self-respect, develop your body and mind and learn to defend yourself, Taekwondo could be just the pastime for you.
Because Taekwondo has pretty high physical requirements, it is possibly more suitable for the younger generation in Daventry. That's not to say that older individuals cannot be involved in this activity, but merely that there might be alternative martial arts which are more appropriate for the less agile of us. Tai Chi is a perfect example.
Taekwondo is a martial art that mostly consists of high-kicking moves and manoeuvres, in particular head-height kicks, turning/jumping kicks and fast kicking techniques. It started in Seoul, in southern Korea during the 1940's, when a group of martial arts enthusiasts established schools called "kwans", which combined a variety of martial arts practices.
These days an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has more than sixty million enthusiasts worldwide, and though you might not have any aspirations to be an Olympic Games sportsman, you can still register for a Taekwondo class or club to master what will undoubtedly prove to be a fulfilling and interesting activity.
For the people of Daventry who like the idea of learning a martial art, a major priority is the element of self-defence. Considering that this is a key principle of Taekwondo, it's not difficult to appreciate the attraction of this specific sport. With the extra benefit of developing self-restraint and having a deep-rooted respect for those around you, enrolling in a local Daventry Taekwondo class would seem to be a no brainer.
Although it will give you peace of mind being aware that you have those self-defence skills tucked away inside you, the odds are you will never have to use them outside the controlled setting of a dedicated Taekwondo class.
Your First Taekwondo Lesson
If you've never done Taekwondo previously, you may be a bit anxious as to what to expect on your first lesson. This can vary from club to club but will typically consist of some or all of the following. A fifteen to twenty minute warm up to loosen up muscles and increase your heart rate, some practical training involving learning some kicks, hand attacks, blocks and stances, learning some forms, an introduction to sparring which will include movement, attack timing and timing, and lastly a warm down to relax and stretch weary muscles.
Anyone who joins a Taekwondo class in Daventry has to also register with British Taekwondo which is the regulating body of the sport in Britain.
