Recognized as a means by which to develop your body and mind, learn some self-defence moves, bolster your self-esteem and build your confidence, it has been embraced by many millions of fitness enthusiasts across the globe.
Taekwondo can be quite physically demanding, therefore it might be considered more appropriate for the younger rather than the older generation in Conisbrough.

The most used Taekwondo "blocks" include: Nine Block, Double Knife Hand Block, Single Forearm Block, Rising Block, Palm Block, Double Forearm Block, Low Block, Knife Hand Block and Upper Block.
Taekwondo Belts (Promotion)
When it comes to ranking, belts and promotion there isn't actually any real standardization in Taekwondo, as there are various different styles of Taekwondo each of which has their own unique arrangement. There are however parallels and they normally comprise two groupings of belts "juniors" and "seniors" represented by coloured and black belts respectively. The senior grades normally have 9 ranks and the junior, eight to twelve levels.
In the UK there are a set of ranks (belts) in Taekwondo that are known as "Kup". The lowest (beginners) rank is 10th Kup and the highest is 1st Kup. The Taekwondo belt order, just like many of the martial arts is denoted by a range of colours, these colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediary belts with stripes, namely 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. The White Belt (10th Kup) is what Taekwondo beginners in Conisbrough will commence with, they will then advance through the coloured belts, eventually reaching the Red With Black Stripe Belt (1st Kup), which will take about three to four years.
After succeeding with this challenge, Taekwondo trainees in Conisbrough are known as "black belt candidates" which requires them to move through yet another nine ranks (Dans) right up until they eventually achieve the distinction of "Black Belt" status. Hence, the Taekwondo belt order can be grouped into 3 divisions; Junior Belt, Senior Belt and Black Belt. The Junior Taekwondo Belts are; White (10th), White With Yellow Stripe (9th), Yellow (8th), and Yellow With Green Stripe (7th). The Senior Taekwondo Belts comprise; Green (6th), Green With Blue Stripe (5th), Blue (4th), Blue With Red Stripe (3rd), Red (2nd) and Red With Black Stripe (1st). The Black Taekwondo Belts go from 1st to 9th Dan which can take a considerable number of years to progress through.

What you get out of Taekwondo will be proportional to what you put into it (as is the case with life in general).
