Sunninghill Taekwondo (SL5): 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 learn some useful self-defence techniques, build your confidence, strengthen your mind and body and bolster your self-esteem, Taekwondo might be just the activity for you.
It has to be said that Taekwondo can be quite physically demanding, which might put off the older and less agile people in Sunninghill from taking this up. To be fair, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are children and the younger generation, but certainly older people who are in good physical health can easily take part and get benefits from this activity.
Taekwondo started in Korea in 1945. In Seoul, a group of Korean martial arts fanatics established some new schools which they named "kwans", practicing a combination of martial arts techniques. Kicking manoeuvres, especially fast kicking techniques, jumping/turning kicks and head-height kicks are the main emphasis of Taekwondo, as it eventually became known.Today Sunninghill Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
The number of Taekwondo practitioners globally, now exceeds sixty million. Now an Olympic sport, Taekwondo is accessible to everyone, and signing up for a local Sunninghill Taekwondo class or club is the best way to get yourself involved. Whilst reaching Olympic standard may be beyond you, there is no reason why you cannot still become a Taekwondo master.
For the people of Sunninghill who wish to learn a martial art, a top priority is the aspect of self-defence. Since this is a key principle of Taekwondo, it is easy to see the appeal of this particular sport. With the added bonus of learning self-restraint and having a deep respect for others, signing up for a local Sunninghill Taekwondo class seems to be a no brainer.
What to Expect From Your First Lesson: If Taekwondo is not something that you've ever done before, you will doubtless be wondering what to expect from your first lesson should you decide to sign up. Different Taekwondo schools in Sunninghill have different ideas about this but roughly; you will take part in a 15-20 minute warm-up, you will do a bit of technical training, you will learn some forms, you will practice sparring techniques and finally you will warm-down to get your body back into a state of relaxation.
