Ryde Taekwondo (PO33): If you would like to build your confidence, enhance your self-esteem, strengthen your body and mind and learn to defend yourself better, 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.
Taekwondo is quite physically demanding, which means it may be considered more suitable for the younger rather than the older generation in Ryde. Its teachings of self-discipline and respect for others make it particularly good for children. Older adults who are not all that fit and active might find it a tad too taxing. For those people who take up Taekwondo when they are younger, continuing the experience into adulthood should not be a problem. Something a bit softer like Tai Chi might be more suitable for the less agile of you.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently developed of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. A group of Korean martial artists in Seoul established some new schools known as "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques. Kicking manoeuvres, especially fast kicking techniques, head kicks and jumping/turning kicks are the main emphasis of Taekwondo, as it eventually became known.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Ryde and all around the world, with over 60 million practitioners worldwide. Now an Olympic sport, Taekwondo is accessible to everyone, and joining a local Ryde Taekwondo club or class is the best way to get yourself involved. While reaching Olympic standard may be aiming a bit high, there is no reason why you cannot become a Taekwondo master.
It seems to be the case that the most attractive element of Taekwondo is self-defence. This isn't hard to believe when you think about the high levels of violence experienced in city and town centres day after day. Being able to defend yourself is a key factor of Taekwondo, but this is balanced by respecting others and exercising self-restraint.
