Horndean Taekwondo (PO8): If you have been looking around Horndean for some ideas for a new hobby, you might want to consider Taekwondo as a possibility. Practising this skill will enable you to learn a bit of self-defence, build your confidence, develop your body and mind and enhance your self-esteem. A more modern martial art, Taekwondo was first developed in the 1940's and 50's in Korea.
Taekwondo is an ideal sport for children in Horndean, because it teaches self-discipline and a respect for others. Its more physical aspects make it more suited to younger people. It could prove too taxing for some older adults, but shouldn't be a problem for those who are already fit and active. However those in Horndean who take up Taekwondo at a young age, will find that carrying it on into older adulthood is not a problem. If you are less agile you could always try something a bit softer such as Tai Chi or Yoga.
The sport was developed in Korea in 1945, though it was not named Taekwondo until the 1950's. Some innovative new schools called "kwans" were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts lovers, blending a number of various martial arts techniques. This later became known as Taekwondo and the main emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially head kicks, rapid kicking strategies and turning/jumping kicks. Today Horndean Taekwondo classes abide by this tradition.
Ever since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been a competitive Olympic sport. This has made it even more popular around the world with some 60 million people or more actively attending classes. And it's by signing up to a Taekwondo class or club that you can commence your adventure of learning this fascinating activity.
Of all the many benefits of doing this sport, it is the self-defence aspect of Taekwondo that the people of Horndean consider most alluring. And in these days of increasing violence, particularly in town and city centres, it is no great surprise that this features on top of people's priority list. Being able to defend yourself is a key principle of Taekwondo, but this is balanced by exercising self-restraint and respecting others.
While it is nice to know that you can defend yourself any time you need to, you should be hoping that you never need to do this outside of your local Taekwondo club environment.
Your First Lesson
If you've never done Taekwondo previously, you might be a bit apprehensive as to what can be expected on your very first lesson. This can vary from school to school but will normally involve all or some of the following. A fifteen to twenty minute warm up to increase heart rate and loosen up muscles, a bit of technical training including learning some stances, blocks, hand attacks and kicks, discovering a few forms (or Poomse), a brief introduction to sparring which will include the timing of attacks, movement and timing, and finally a warm down to relax and stretch weary muscles.
