Gorseinon Taekwondo (SA4): Learning a new skill is always rewarding and the martial arts are a popular choice these days. Taking up something like Taekwondo enables you to bolster your self-respect, develop your mind and body, learn some self-defence techniques and build your confidence. This Korean inspired martial art has grown in popularity since its development during the 1940's.
Because Taekwondo has pretty high physical demands, it's possibly more suitable for the younger people of Gorseinon. That isn't to say that older people can't be involved in this particular activity, but just that there might be other martial arts which are more appropriate for the less nimble of us. Tai Chi is the perfect illustration.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently developed of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. Some new schools called "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts fanatics. The emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially rapid kicking strategies, jumping/spinning kicks and head-height kicks, and it was later given the name; Taekwondo, meaning "the way of the foot and fist".
With over sixty million individuals taking part in Taekwondo classes all over the world, this has definitely become an extremely popular pastime, and if you really master this martial art you may even one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been an integral part since the 2000 Sydney Games.
A key aspect of Taekwondo is self-defence, and doubtless this is one of the primary reasons that people in Gorseinon get involved in classes and engage with the sport. There's been a worrying escalation of violent behaviour in recent years and this is especially rampant in city and town centres throughout Wales and the country as a whole. The beauty of Taekwondo though, is that it also promotes self-discipline and a deep respect for others, not such widespread attributes in Gorseinon these days.
These self-defence techniques may sooner or later come in handy in your day to day life, although it is much more likely you'll solely be testing them within a monitored class setting. However it is a reassuring feeling knowing that you will always be able to successfully defend yourself if you need to.
