Solihull Taekwondo (B91): If you are looking to take up a new hobby which will enable you to learn a bit of self-defence, enhance your self-respect, strengthen your body and mind and boost your confidence, you might consider Taekwondo as a possible candidate. This relatively modern martial art only came into being in Korea during the 1940's and 1950's.
Because Taekwondo has quite high physical demands, it is perhaps more suited to the younger generation in Solihull. That is not to say that older people cannot participate in this activity, but simply that there may be other martial arts that are more suited to the less agile among us. Tai Chi would be the perfect example.
With its beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently developed of the martial arts and involves mainly kicking moves such as fast kicking strategies, head-height kicks and turning/jumping kicks. It began when schools called "kwans" were established by a group of Korean martial artists in Seoul, South Korea.
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.
For many people in Solihull, it is the self-defence element of Taekwondo that has the most appeal. And its no surprise that this sits prominently on people's list of priorities when you take into account the rising levels of violence seen nowadays in city centres throughout Britain.
