Taekwondo Lytham St Annes

Taekwondo is a martial art that mainly consists of kicking manoeuvres, in particular fast kicking methods, jumping/spinning kicks and head-height kicks. 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.

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.

While there is much to be gained by doing Taekwondo, it is the self-defence aspect that most Lytham St Annes people are interested in. And when you consider the high levels of violence in town and city centres these days, this is hardly surprising. Being able to defend yourself is a key factor of Taekwondo, but this is tempered by learning self-restraint and a respect for others.

Your First Class: If you have never done Taekwondo before you may be a little concerned as to what to expect on your first lesson. This will vary from school to school but will usually involve some or all of the following. A 15-20 minute warm up to increase heart rate and loosen muscles, some technical training involving learning some stances, hand attacks, blocks and kicks, learning some forms (or Poomse), an introduction to sparring including movement, timing and the targeting of attacks, and lastly a warm down to relax and stretch tired muscles.
