UK Taekwondo: If you've been looking at taking up a hobby to achieve some particular goals such as to build your confidence, develop your body and mind, enhance your self-esteem and learn some self-defence techniques, Taekwondo could be just the thing for you. This relatively modern martial art only came into being in Korea during the 1940's and 1950's.
While not intending to be in any way ageist, Taekwondo can be pretty physical and is generally more appropriate for younger people in UK, it is especially good for children who will become self-disciplined and respecting of others. It can often be too tough for older adults unless they are exceptionally fit and active. However those that take up Taekwondo in UK at a young age will find they can easily carry it on into older adulthood. The less agile of you may find that Tai Chi which is a bit less demanding, is more suitable.
Taekwondo is a martial art that primarily consists of kicking manoeuvres, most notably head-height kicks, spinning/jumping kicks and rapid kicking methods. It started in Seoul, in southern Korea in the 1940's, when a group of martial arts enthusiasts founded schools known as "kwans", which combined various martial arts practices.
With over sixty million fitness enthusiasts taking part in Taekwondo classes all around the globe, this has definitely become a popular activity, and if you really master this martial art you might even one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
