Hetton-le-Hole Taekwondo (DH5): If you're looking for ways that you can bolster your self-esteem, build your confidence, learn some valuable self-defence techniques and strengthen your body and mind, you might think about taking up a sport like Taekwondo. This Korean inspired martial art has grown in popularity since its development during the 1940's.
On account of its rather more physical aspects, Taekwondo is perhaps more suited to the younger generation in Hetton-le-Hole and is particularly suited to kids as it's excellent for developing respect for others and self-discipline. Older adults could find it somewhat too challenging unless they're particularly active and fit. Even so, those who take up Taekwondo in Hetton-le-Hole from a young age will discover they can easily continue with it when they are older. The less agile of you could consider something gentler like Tai Chi.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently created of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea, South-East Asia in 1945. A group of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul established some schools known as "kwans", combining a number of martial arts techniques. Taekwondo, which was ultimately called, mainly involves high-kicking manoeuvres, particularly fast kicking strategies, jumping/spinning kicks and head-height kicks.
Popular around the world Taekwondo now has over sixty million students. If you would like to get involved in this activity, which is now an Olympic sport, signing up for a Taekwondo class or club in Hetton-le-Hole is an excellent place to start. There is no reason why you can't reach an advanced standard in this exciting sport, even if you don't have any desire to take part in the Olympics.
It is the self-defence aspect of Taekwondo that generally has the most appeal to people in Hetton-le-Hole. And when you consider the high levels of violence in town and city centres these days, this is hardly surprising. Learning to defend yourself while at the same time applying self-restraint and a respect for others is a key benefit of Taekwondo.
While it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have these self-defence skills in your locker, the odds are that you will never be required to use them outside the regulated setting of a dedicated Taekwondo class.
