Kidderminster Taekwondo (DY10): Originally created in Korea in the 1940s and 1950s, Taekwondo is a fast combatative sport that has become exceedingly popular over the past 30 years or so. For people who wish to enhance your self-esteem, strengthen your mind and body, build your confidence and learn self-defence, Taekwondo could be the ideal pastime or fitness activity.
While people of all ages in Kidderminster can of course participate in Taekwondo, it is particularly suited to the younger generation since it can be quite physically demanding, children can especially benefit from its teachings of self-discipline and the respect of others. It can sometimes be too taxing for older adults unless they are exceptionally fit and active. However those who take up Taekwondo in Kidderminster at a young age will find they can easily carry it on into older adulthood. If you consider yourself among the less agile, you could try something like Tai Chi which is much softer.
Taekwondo is a martial art that primarily features high-kicking manoeuvres and moves, in particular head kicks, fast kicking techniques and jumping/turning kicks. It started in Seoul, in southern Korea in the 1940's, when a group of martial arts specialists established schools known as "kwans", which merged a number of martial arts practices.
Now an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has over sixty million followers all around the world, and even though you might not aspire to be an Olympic Games sportsman, you are still able to register for a Taekwondo club or class to learn what will undoubtedly turn out to be a worthwhile and intriguing activity.
