Chinnor Taekwondo (OX39): Created during the nineteen forties in Korea, Taekwondo is a martial art that has grown dramatically in popularity in recent years. Well known as a way to boost your confidence, bolster your self-esteem, strengthen your body and mind and learn some self-defence moves, it has been adopted by many millions of fitness enthusiasts across the globe.
Taekwondo is generally far more demanding physically than for example Tai Chi, so unless you're pretty agile and fit you might prefer to find something a little bit gentler to boost your fitness levels in Chinnor. Children and younger people are clearly the perfect participants for Taekwondo classes in Chinnor, with lots of fast paced movements going on and a great deal of high kicking.
Based mostly around high-kicking manoeuvres and moves like jumping/turning kicks, rapid kicking strategies and head kicks, Taekwondo was developed from the techniques of various diverse martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts specialists in new schools called "Kwans" during the 1940's and 1950's. These "Kwans" were given the names Changmu Kwan, Jido Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Songmu Kwan and Mooduk Kwan.
Since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport. This has added to its popularity worldwide with some 60 million people or more routinely taking part in classes. And it is by enrolling in a Taekwondo class or club that you can begin your quest of mastering this remarkable art.
A key element of Taekwondo is self-defence, and obviously this is one of the primary reasons that individuals in Chinnor get involved in classes and engage with the sport. There's been a disconcerting increase in violent conduct in recent years and this is especially common in city and town centres throughout Oxfordshire and the nation as a whole.

The senior levels usually have nine ranks and the junior, 8 to 12 levels.

As with many of the martial arts, the Taekwondo belt order is denoted by a range of different colours, so that the ranks are easily identified.
