Taekwondo is one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea, South-East Asia in 1945.

With more than sixty million fitness enthusiasts participating in Taekwondo instruction all over the world, this has unquestionably become an extremely popular pastime, and if you become really good at the martial art you might possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
A key aspect of Taekwondo is self-defence, and not surprisingly this is one of the principal reasons that people in Bracknell join classes and take up the sport. There's been a disturbing escalation of violent practices in recent years and this is especially rife in town and city centres throughout Berkshire and Great Britain as a whole.
