Holbeach Taekwondo (PE12): 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 enhance your self-esteem, build your confidence, learn some self-defence techniques and develop your body and mind. This Korean inspired martial art has grown in popularity since its development during the 1940's.
It should be said that Taekwondo can be very physically challenging, which could discourage the older and less nimble folks in Holbeach from getting involved. To be honest, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are children and younger people, but of course older individuals who are in great physical health can easily be involved and benefit from this activity.
The sport was first practiced in Korea in around 1945, though the name Taekwondo was not coined until the 1950's. A group of Korean martial arts devotees in Seoul established some schools called "kwans", where they practiced a mix of martial arts techniques. In Taekwondo the main focus is on kicking, in particular jumping/turning kicks, fast kicking techniques and head-height kicks. Nowadays Holbeach Taekwondo classes observe this tradition.
With more than 60 million fitness enthusiasts participating in Taekwondo sessions all over the world, this has certainly become an extremely popular and worthwhile pastime, and if you become really good at this sport you might possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part ever since the 2000 Sydney Games.
For the people of Holbeach who like the idea of learning a martial art, a major priority is the element of self-defence. Since this is a pivotal principle of Taekwondo, it's not difficult to see the appeal of this particular sport. With the added bonus of developing self-restraint and having a degree of respect for those around you, registering for a local Holbeach Taekwondo class would seem to be an easy decision.
There's a pretty good likelihood that your newly learned Taekwondo skills will never see the light of day in your day to day life, but it will unquestionably give you peace of mind knowing that they are sitting in the background should you need them.
What to Expect From Your First Class
If you come to a decision to register for a Taekwondo class in Holbeach, the very first thing you'll wish to know is what will happen on the very first lesson and what will the tutor expect to see from you. Different Taekwondo masters in Holbeach will formulate diverse routines for this first introductory lesson but you can anticipate doing a 15-20 minute warm-up to get the blood circulating and loosen your muscles, learn some simple forms (Poomse), cover some technical training (stances, blocking techniques, hand attacks and kicks), do a small amount of sparring, and last but not least, warm-down.

Some Taekwondo Kicks
One of the key features of Taekwondo is kicking, here is a selection of the most widely used kicking moves: Side Kick (Yeop Chagi), Back Kick (Dwo Chagi), Front Kick (Ap Chagi), Push Kick (Meereo Chagi), Roundhouse Kick (Dollyo Chagi), Axe Kick (Naeryeo Chagi), Hook or Whip Kick (Huryeo Chagi), Crescent Kick (Bandal Chagi). Blocks: To divert and stop an inbound Taekwondo attack, blocks (known as Makgi) are implemented. Held in particular positions, they involve the hand and parts of the arm. Each block can be coordinated with a punch or kick to establish a counter-attacking movement, and each one is appropriate for a certain type of attack. The most important "blocks" (makgi) include: Palm Block, Double Knife Hand Block, Single Forearm Block, Knife Hand Block, Upper Block, Low Block, Double Forearm Block, Rising Block and Nine Block.
Taekwondo Belts (Promotion)
In terms of promotion, ranking and belts there's not actually any standardization in Taekwondo, because there are many different styles of Taekwondo which each have their own specific system. There are however similarities and they usually consist of a couple of groupings of belts "juniors" and "seniors" represented by coloured and black belts respectively. The senior ranks usually have nine levels and the junior, eight to twelve tiers.
Ranks in Taekwondo in the UK are symbolized by what generally known as "Kup". The highest rank is First Kup and the lowest (beginners) is Tenth Kup. As with many of the martial arts, the Taekwondo belt order is indicated by a range of different colours, so that the ranks can be easily identified. These colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with transitional belts with stripes in-between, 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. Beginners of Taekwondo in Holbeach will commence with the White Belt (Tenth Kup), and progress through the different coloured belts until they reach the Red With Black Stripe Belt (First Kup)
After succeeding with this challenge, Taekwondo students in Holbeach are considered to be "black belt candidates" which sees them moving through an additional 9 ranks (Dans) right up until they achieve the ultimate accolade of "Black Belt" status. Therefore, putting it simply, there are three principal groups in the Taekwondo belt order, namely Junior Belts, Senior Belts and Black Belts. The Junior group of Taekwondo Belts are; White (Tenth), White With a Yellow Stripe (Ninth), Yellow (Eighth), and Yellow With a Green Stripe (Seventh). The Senior group of Taekwondo Belts are; Green (Sixth), Green With a Blue Stripe (Fifth), Blue (Fourth), Blue With a Red Stripe (Third), Red (Second), and Red With a Black Stripe (First). The Black group of Taekwondo Belts comprise First to Ninth Dan rankings, and involves many years of dedication.

Taekwondo Forms (Patterns)
Folks just beginning their journey in Taekwondo do not have to fret too much about forms (patterns, Poomse) at the outset, however they will have to learn some basic ones for starters and move on to more challenging forms as they progress through the various belts (grades/dans). A form is denoted by specific elements of Taekwondo including technique, direction and stance. Getting to grips with these techniques is a vital part of perfecting Taekwondo.
