Catshill Taekwondo (B61): A Korean martial art that was formulated in the nineteen forties, Taekwondo has grown considerably in popularity since then. If you would like to strengthen your mind and body, enhance your self-respect, learn a bit of self-defence and boost your confidence, Taekwondo could be just the pastime for you.
Taekwondo is quite physically demanding, which means it may be considered more suitable for the younger rather than the older generation in Catshill. Its teachings of self-discipline and respect for others make it particularly good for children. Older adults who are not all that fit and active might find it a tad too taxing. People in Catshill who take up Taekwondo when they are young find it easy to continue when they get older. The less agile of you might consider something softer like Tai Chi.
Based primarily around high-kicking manoeuvres and moves like jumping/turning kicks, fast kicking styles and head kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of various martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts experts in new schools known as "Kwans" during the nineteen forties and fifties. These "Kwans" were given the names Mooduk Kwan, Songmu Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Changmu Kwan and Jido Kwan.
With more than 60 million people engaged in Taekwondo classes all over the world, this has certainly become a popular activity, and if you become really expert at this martial art you may even one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it has been a part ever since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
The thing about Taekwondo that seems to most appeal to people in Catshill is the self-defence aspect of it. You shouldn't be surprised by this, when you bear in mind the high incidence of violence seen in today's town and city centres. However, respecting others and having a good deal of self-restraint goes hand in hand with Taekwondo's self-defence principles.
Although it will give you peace of mind being aware that you have such self-defence skills tucked away inside you, the chances are you will never need to use them outside the controlled atmosphere of an organized Taekwondo class.
What to Expect From Your First Class
Different Taekwondo clubs in Catshill will have different viewpoints on what learners should be covering on their first lesson, however to give you an understanding of what to expect most first Taekwondo classes will include things like a warm-up, a bit of sparring, learning simple Poomse (forms), an overview of kicks, hand attacks, stances and blocking techniques (practical training) and a final warm-down to relax tired muscles and return the body to a state of equilibrium.

Blocks: Taekwondo "blocks", which are used to fend off the various attacks, are called Makgi. They are held in specific positions and employ the hands with parts of the arm. Specific attacks necessitate particular blocks, but "blocks" can also be turned into counter-attacking moves by combining reciprocal punches or kicks. The primary blocks include: Nine Block, Double Forearm Block, Palm Block, Rising Block, Double Knife Hand Block, Single Forearm Block, Low Block, Knife Hand Block and Upper Block.
Safety equipment such as a blue or red trunk guard (hogu), a groin protector, shin pads, a blue/red head guard, hand protectors, forearm guards and a gum shield must be worn in all tournaments supervised by British Taekwondo. Protection from injury is required thanks to the formidable kicking that is an integral element of this sport.
