Rayleigh Taekwondo (SS6): A Korean martial art that was developed during the 1940's, Taekwondo has continued to grow in popularity since then. If you would like to bolster your self-respect, build your confidence, learn some self-defence moves and strengthen your mind and body, Taekwondo might be just the activity for you.
Taekwondo is generally a lot more demanding physically than for example Tai Chi, so unless you are pretty fit and agile you might prefer to find something a little gentler to improve your fitness in Rayleigh. Younger children are certainly the perfect participants for Taekwondo classes in Rayleigh, with lots of fast movements going on and plenty of high kicking.
Based mostly around kicking manoeuvres like fast kicking methods, head-height kicks and spinning/jumping kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of different martial arts, by a group of Seoul martial arts experts in new schools called "Kwans" during the 1940's and 1950's. These "Kwans" had the names Songmu Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Changmu Kwan, Jido Kwan, Mooduk Kwan.
The total number of Taekwondo practitioners worldwide, now exceeds 60 million. Since the Sydney Games (2000) Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport and if you want to give it a go, joining a local Rayleigh Taekwondo club or class is a good way to get involved. While you may not aspire to Olympic competition, there is no reason why you cannot become a master of this exciting martial art and have some fun along the way.

Since this is a key principle of Taekwondo, it is easy to see the appeal of this particular sport.
