Holland-on-Sea Taekwondo (CO15): 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 develop your mind and body, learn some self-defence techniques, bolster your self-respect and boost your confidence. A more modern martial art, Taekwondo was first developed in the 1940's and 50's in Korea.
It has to be asserted that Taekwondo can be very challenging physically, which could discourage the less agile and more elderly folks in Holland-on-Sea from getting involved. To be fair, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are kids and younger people, but unquestionably older people who are in decent physical condition can easily be involved and get benefits from this activity.
With its root beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts and consists of mainly high-kicking moves such as fast kicking strategies, head kicks and jumping/turning kicks. It started when schools called "kwans" were set up by a bunch of Korean martial artists in Seoul, South Korea.
Nowadays an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has more than sixty million enthusiasts worldwide, and although you might not aspire to be an Olympic Games sportsman, you can still register for a Taekwondo class or club to master what will undoubtedly turn out to be a fulfilling and intriguing pastime.
For the men, women and children of Holland-on-Sea who are keen on the idea of learning a martial art, a big priority is the aspect of self-defence. Since this is a pivotal concept of Taekwondo, it's not difficult to see the appeal of this specific sport. With the additional bonus of learning self-restraint and having a degree of respect for others, signing up for a local Holland-on-Sea Taekwondo class seems to be a no brainer.
While it will give you peace of mind being aware that you have these self-defence skills in your locker, the chances are you'll never have to test them outside the monitored environment of an actual Taekwondo class.

The ranking and belt system can get quite bewildering in Taekwondo as there isn't any standardized system throughout the various Taekwondo disciplines.

The number of rankings in the junior groupings varies over the disciplines but is normally somewhere between 8 and 12 belts, while the senior groupings typically has nine belts or dans.

The 10th Kup (White Belt) is what Taekwondo beginners in Holland-on-Sea will commence with, they will then move up through the coloured belts, finally reaching the Red With Black Stripe Belt (1st Kup), after around three to four years of dedication.
Taekwondo students in Holland-on-Sea become "black belt candidates" once they have worked their way through these rankings, and they'll then be faced with proceeding through an additional nine ranks (Dans) if they wish to achieve the supreme distinction Taekwondo Black Belt.
