Bacup Taekwondo (OL13): Learning a new skill is always rewarding and the martial arts are a popular choice these days. Taking up something like Taekwondo enables you to build your confidence, strengthen your body and mind, bolster your self-respect and learn some useful self-defence techniques. Since being developed in Korea during the 1940's, this more modern martial art has grown in popularity.
Taekwondo is an ideal sport for children in Bacup, because it teaches self-discipline and a respect for others. Its more physical aspects make it more suited to younger people. Older adults who are not all that fit and active might find it a tad too taxing. Carrying their Taekwondo experience through into older adulthood should not however be a problem for those who start when they are younger. The less agile of you might find that Tai Chi which is a bit softer is more suitable.
With its early beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts and consists of primarily kicking moves such as rapid kicking strategies, turning/jumping kicks and head-height kicks. It started when schools called "kwans" were established by a bunch of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul, South Korea.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Bacup and all around the world, with over 60 million practitioners worldwide. If you want to get involved in this activity, which is now an Olympic sport, joining a Taekwondo club or class in Bacup is a good place to start. There is no reason why you cannot become a master of this exciting martial art, even if you do not aspire to Olympic competition.
A key element of Taekwondo is self-defence, and naturally this is one of the primary reasons that folks in Bacup sign up to classes and engage with the sport. There has been a worrying increase in violent behaviour over the last few years and this is especially widespread in town and city centres throughout Lancashire and the country in general. The good thing about Taekwondo though, is that it also encourages self-discipline and a deep respect for others, not such familiar characteristics in Bacup these days.
With luck, outside your local Taekwondo club environment, you won't ever need to apply your newly learned skills to defend yourself.
