Enderby Taekwondo (LE19): If you are looking to take up a new hobby which will enable you to enhance your self-respect, boost your confidence, learn to defend yourself better and strengthen your body and mind, you might consider Taekwondo as a possible candidate. A more modern martial art, Taekwondo was first developed in the 1940's and 50's in Korea.
While not intending to be in any way ageist, Taekwondo can be rather physical and is generally more suited to younger people in Enderby, it is especially good for children who will learn to be self-disciplined and respecting of others. Older adults may find it somewhat too taxing unless they are particularly fit and active. However those in Enderby who take up Taekwondo at a young age, will find that carrying it on into older adulthood is not a problem. The less agile of you might consider something softer like Tai Chi.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. Some innovative new schools called "kwans", mixing various martial arts techniques were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts lovers. Taekwondo, which it later became known as, mostly entails kicking movements, especially jumping/turning kicks, head kicks and rapid kicking techniques. Nowadays Enderby Taekwondo classes stick to this tradition.
Taekwondo now has over 60 million practitioners worldwide and has become very popular in Enderby and throughout the UK. Since the Sydney Games (2000) Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport and if you want to give it a go, joining a local Enderby Taekwondo club or class is a good way to get involved. There is no reason why you cannot reach a high standard in this thrilling sport, even if you have no desire to compete in the Olympics.
The thing about Taekwondo that seems to most interest people in Enderby is the self-defence element of it. And when you consider the high levels of violence in city centres these days, this is not surprising. Being able to defend yourself is a key factor of Taekwondo, but this is balanced by exercising self-restraint and respecting others.
Although it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have such self-defence skills in your locker, the chances are that you'll never need to use them outside the monitored environment of an organised Taekwondo class.
What to Expect From Your First Lesson
For those of you who have never tried Taekwondo before, you will no doubt be interested to know what to expect from your first class. This could vary subject to which Enderby school you go to, but will typically involve the following. A warm up of fifteen to twenty minutes to increase your heart rate and loosen the muscles, some technical training covering some stances, hand attacks, kicks and blocking techniques, learning the basic forms or patterns, a look at sparring including good timing, precise movement and the accurate targeting of attacks, and to finish off a warm down with muscle stretching and relaxing.
Taekwondo of course also has got its own governing body, and in Britain it is British Taekwondo. Anybody wishing to join a Taekwondo club in Enderby has to become a registered member of this organisation. You will be able to read about beginning a new Taekwondo club, equality and safeguarding, news, coaches and referees, events, health and safety, clubs and members, first aid, coaching courses, and more on British Taekwondo's website, and find out the latest news reports on their Facebook or Twitter page.

Taekwondo Belts (Promotion)
Because there are a number of kinds of Taekwondo there's never really been any standardized arrangement for assigning belts (grades). What exists however is fairly similar and comprises two belt groupings "junior" and "senior" ("colour" and "black"), each one of these groupings is split into grades, 8 to 12 colours in the case of juniors and nine "blacks" for the seniors.
In the UK there are a set of ranks in Taekwondo which are known as "Kup". The lowest is 10th Kup and the highest is 1st Kup. The Taekwondo belt order, similar to the vast majority of the martial arts is indicated by a number of colours, these colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediate belts with stripes, specifically 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. Students in Enderby getting started in Taekwondo will commence with the 10th Kup (White Belt), and move up through the coloured belts until they accomplish the Red Belt With a Black Stripe (1st Kup).
After this training has been completed, Enderby Taekwondo trainees are referred to as "black belt candidates", and they then need to earn an additional 9 Dans (ranks) if they're to become a Taekwondo "Black Belt", which is the consummate accolade. So, the bottom line is, there are three primary groups in the Taekwondo belt order, namely Junior Belt, Senior Belt and Black Belt. The Junior Taekwondo Belts comprise; White (10th), White With Yellow Stripe (9th), Yellow (8th), and Yellow With Green Stripe (7th). The Senior Taekwondo Belts are; 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 will take a considerable number of years to successfully progress through.
