Coseley Taekwondo (DY4): If you have been looking around Coseley for some ideas for a new hobby, you might want to consider Taekwondo as a possibility. Practising this skill will enable you to enhance your self-esteem, learn some valuable self-defence techniques, strengthen your mind and body and build your confidence. This more modern of the martial arts was developed in Korea just after World War 2.
Taekwondo is typically far more physically demanding than for example Tai Chi, so unless you are pretty agile and fit you might prefer to find something a bit gentler to boost your fitness levels in Coseley. Younger children are definitely an ideal participants for Taekwondo classes in Coseley, with a lot of fast paced movements going on and plenty of high kicking.
With its origins in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is obviously one of the more recently established of the martial arts and consists of mostly high-kicking moves such as jumping/turning kicks, head-height kicks and fast kicking styles. It began when schools called "kwans" were set up by a bunch of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul, South Korea.
Since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport. This has made it even more popular all over the world with some 60 million people or more regularly attending classes. And it's by joining a Taekwondo class or club that you are able to begin your journey of mastering this unique art.
For the men, women and children of Coseley who are keen on the idea of learning a martial art, a major priority is the element of self-defence. Considering that this is a central concept of Taekwondo, it isn't difficult to see the appeal of this unique sport. With the extra reward of learning self-restraint and having a deep respect for those around you, getting involved in a local Coseley Taekwondo class would seem to be an easy decision.
Whilst it will instill you with self-confidence knowing that you have those self-defence skills tucked away inside you, the chances are you will never need to use them outside of an organised Taekwondo class.
What to Expect From Your First Class
If you've never done Taekwondo before, you may be a bit concerned as to what can be expected on your first class. This varies from club to club but will generally involve all or some of the following. A 15-20 minute warm up to increase heart rate and loosen up muscles, some practical training involving learning some kicks, hand attacks, blocks and stances, studying a few Poomse (forms), an introduction to sparring including attack timing, movement and timing, and finally a warm down to relax and stretch tired muscles.
The United Kingdom's regulating body of the sport is British Taekwondo and if you wish to join a Taekwondo class in Coseley, you'll also be required to register with this organization. You will be able to get lots of details of first aid, health and safety, clubs and members, coaching courses, safeguarding and equality, beginning a new club, coaches and referees, news, events, and more, by visiting British Taekwondo's website.
Beginners in Taekwondo don't need to fret excessively about forms (Poomse, patterns) at the outset, however they will learn some standard ones to start with and progress to more complex forms as they move up the belts (grades/dans). A "form" is indicated by specified aspects of Taekwondo including technique, stance and direction. Getting to grips with such techniques is an important part of mastering Taekwondo.
Competitions and Tournaments
Contests are an important element of the Taekwondo experience, and all the different styles all over the world stage competitions where Taekwondo exponents band together to battle it out. Hard contact is rarely allowed in any of these competitions which primarily incorporate breaking, sparring and patterns. Sparring only is allowed in Olympic and World Taekwondo (WT) tournaments, whilst some hand attacks are permitted in International Taekwon-Do Federation events.
Taekwondo for Beginners

Most of us are content to meet different people, make new friends and improve our levels of fitness, and that is how it ought to be. Yet, as with most matters in life, what you get out of it will be based upon what you put into it. Enjoy! 👊
