Fleet Taekwondo (GU51): If you would like to enhance your self-respect, strengthen your body and mind, learn some self-defence techniques and boost your confidence, an ideal sport to take up is Taekwondo. This more modern martial art has quickly grown in popularity since being developed in the 1940's in Korea.
Whilst people of all ages in Fleet can obviously participate in Taekwondo, it is particularly suited to the younger generation because it can be quite demanding physically, children can especially benefit from its teachings of self-discipline and the respect of others. Seniors could find it somewhat too challenging unless they are particularly active and fit. People in Fleet who take up Taekwondo when they are young find it simple to continue when they become older. Tai Chi or something similarly less strenuous might be more suited to the less agile of you.
Taekwondo is a martial art that mainly consists of kicking manoeuvres, in particular turning/jumping kicks, head-height kicks and fast kicking strategies. It began in Seoul, in southern Korea during the 1940's, when a group of martial arts specialists founded schools called "kwans", which blended various martial arts techniques.
Taekwondo has become extremely popular in Fleet and all around the world, with more than 60 million enthusiasts worldwide. Now an Olympic sport, Taekwondo is accessible to anyone, and joining your local Fleet Taekwondo club or class is the easiest way to get yourself involved. While nobody would seriously expect you to get to Olympic standard, you could certainly be one of the best Taekwondo exponents in Fleet.
In these times of increasing violence, it is hardly surprising that people in places like Fleet are taking up self-defence classes like Taekwondo to help them feel safer in their local environment. The self-defence aspect is one of the key factors of Taekwondo but it also teaches self-restraint and a respect for other people, which are disciplines that are largely missing in modern day life.
What to Expect From Your First Lesson: 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 Fleet 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.
The governing body for Taekwondo in the UK is British Taekwondo and anybody wishing to join a Taekwondo club in Fleet must also register with British Taekwondo.
Taekwondo for Beginners: With any sport or activity we have to start somewhere, and Taekwondo is no different. Even the topmost Fleet Taekwondo masters were complete novices at one point. So, what can you expect as a complete beginner at Taekwondo? Beginner classes should give its students enough training to teach them the basics and allow them to gain confidence as they progress. The perfect beginners class should be fun as well as educational, when people are having fun they are more engaged and will learn faster.
