Telford Taekwondo (TF1): 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 strengthen your mind and body, build your confidence, enhance your self-esteem and learn some valuable self-defence techniques, Taekwondo might be just the activity for you.
When talking about Taekwondo, many people in Telford consider that this is a sport for young children. While the younger generation should find the physical demands of Taekwondo easier to contend with, there's nothing at all to stop people of all ages taking part. It should however be said that if you are fairly agile you will definately get more enjoyment out of Taekwondo.
Taekwondo is a martial art that mainly consists of kicking manoeuvres, in particular jumping/turning kicks, rapid kicking techniques and head 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.
In these times of increasing violence, it is hardly surprising that people in places like Telford are taking up self-defence classes like Taekwondo to help them feel safer in their local environment. The self-defence aspect is one of the key factors of Taekwondo but it also teaches self-restraint and a respect for other people, which are disciplines that are largely missing in modern day life.
Your First Telford Taekwondo 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 Telford 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.
Taekwondo Forms (Patterns): Taekwondo forms (also known as patterns or Poomse) are identified by certain facets such as technique, direction and stance. From the outset you will learn some of the basic forms, and in order to progress through the grades (belts) you will need to learn some more advanced ones.
Telford Taekwondo for Beginners: Even the very best exponents of Taekwondo in Telford had to start as novices, so it is no shame to be a complete beginner at Taekwondo, or any other activity for that matter. The aim of a Taekwondo beginners class is to teach a few basics, increase confidence and build a solid foundation for the future. Most important of all is that it should be fun, students having fun will learn quicker and be better engaged.
Telford Taekwondo clubs can normally offer Taekwondo for fitness, Taekwondo patterns, Taekwondo kicks, Taekwondo for older adults, Taekwondo etiquette, Taekwondo for beginners, Taekwondo for children, Taekwondo for self-defence, Taekwondo stances, Taekwondo forms and more in Telford, .
In Summary: We cannot all be like Jade Jones or Lutalo Muhammad, and I guess that we wouldn't all want to be. Taekwondo isn't just about Olympic titles and National Championships. Most of us are happy to improve our fitness, make new friends and meet different people, and that is how it should be. However, as with most things in life, what you get out of it will depend on what you put into it. Good luck!
