Battle Taekwondo (TN33): If you would like to enhance your self-esteem, develop your body and mind, learn a bit of self-defence and boost your confidence, an ideal sport to take up is Taekwondo. This relatively modern martial art only came into being in Korea during the 1940's and 1950's.
It must be said that Taekwondo can be very challenging physically, which can put off the older and less nimble people in Battle from taking this up. To be completely truthful, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are kids and the younger generation, but obviously older individuals who are in excellent physical condition can easily be involved and get benefits from this activity.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently developed of the martial arts, with its early beginnings in Korea in 1945. A group of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul founded some new schools known as "kwans", incorporating many different martial arts techniques. Taekwondo, which it eventually became known as, primarily involves kicking manoeuvres, especially fast kicking strategies, turning/jumping kicks and head-height kicks.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Battle and all around the world, with more than sixty million practitioners worldwide. Enrolling in a local Battle Taekwondo club or class is a great way to get involved in this sport which has even featured in the Olympic Games ever since the Sydney Games in 2000. Though you might not have any ambitions to get involved in Olympic competition, there's no reason why you should not become a maestro of this thrilling martial art and have a bit of fun along the way.
People in Battle take up Taekwondo for many reasons but it is the self-defence aspect that appeals to most. And in these days of increased violence, especially in town and city centres, it is no surprise that this features high on people's list of priorities. In fact one of the key principles of Taekwondo is learning to defend yourself whilst exercising self-restraint and a respect for others.
Your newly learned Taekwondo skills will more than likely never need to be proven outside the regulated environment of an organised Taekwondo class, however being aware that you've got them will instill you with confidence.

This may vary depending on which Battle school you go to, but will usually involve the following. A warm up of fifteen to twenty minutes to increase heart rate and loosen your muscles, a bit of technical training involving learning some hand attacks, blocks, kicks and stances, some work on forms or patterns (Poomse in Korean), a look at sparring including timing, movement and the targeting of attacks, and lastly a warm down to prevent cramping and muscle spasms.

Taekwondo Belts (Rank)
In regards to promotion, ranking and belts there's not actually any real uniformity in Taekwondo, as there are many different styles of Taekwondo which each have their own specific system. There are however parallels and they typically consist of two groups of belts "seniors" and "juniors" represented by black and coloured belts respectively. The senior rankings usually have nine tiers and the junior, 8 to 12 tiers.
In the UK Taekwondo has a sequence of ranks which are referred to as "Kup", these ranks go from 10th (lowest) to 1st (highest). The Taekwondo belt order, much like the vast majority of the martial arts is indicated by a number of colours, these colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediate belts with stripes, specifically white with a yellow stripe, yellow with a green stripe, green with a blue stripe, blue with a red stripe and red with a black stripe. Beginners of Taekwondo in Battle will start out with the Tenth Kup (White Belt), and advance through the various coloured belts until they reach the Red Belt With a Black Stripe (First Kup)
After successfully completing this challenge, Taekwondo trainees in Battle are known as "black belt candidates" which requires them to move through yet another 9 ranks (Dans) right up until they eventually achieve the accolade of "Black Belt". So, the bottom line is, there are 3 principal sections in the Taekwondo belt order, namely Junior Belts, Senior Belts and Black Belts. The Junior group of Taekwondo Belts are; White (Tenth), White With a Yellow Stripe (Ninth), Yellow (Eighth), and Yellow With a Green Stripe (Seventh). The Senior group of Taekwondo Belts are; Green (Sixth), Green With a Blue Stripe (Fifth), Blue (Fourth), Blue With a Red Stripe (Third), Red (Second), and Red With a Black Stripe (First). The Black division of Taekwondo Belts comprise First to Ninth Dan rankings, and involves many years of training and dedication.
