Loughborough Taekwondo (LE11): Developed during the 1940's in Korea, Taekwondo is a martial art that has grown in popularity in the last 20 years or so. Well known as a means by which to learn some valuable self-defence techniques, develop your body and mind, enhance your self-esteem and build your confidence, it has been adopted by many millions of people throughout the world.
It has to be said that Taekwondo can be quite physically challenging, which might put off the older and less agile people in Loughborough from becoming involved. To be truthful, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are children and younger people, but unquestionably older individuals who are in decent physical condition can easily participate and benefit from this sport.
Based mostly around kicking manoeuvres and moves like fast kicking strategies, spinning/jumping kicks and head kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the practices of various diverse martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts specialists in new schools known as "Kwans" during the nineteen forties and fifties. These "Kwans" had the names Songmu Kwan, Changmu Kwan, Jido Kwan, Chungdo Kwan and Mooduk Kwan.
Popular worldwide Taekwondo now has over 60 million enthusiasts. Joining your local Loughborough Taekwondo class or club is the best way to get involved in this sport which has even been in the Olympic Games since the 2000 Sydney Games. There's no reason why you can't reach an advanced standard in this exhilarating sport, even if you have no desire to take part in the Olympics.

The self-defence element is one of the primary factors of Taekwondo but it also promotes self-restraint and a deep respect for others around us, which are characteristics that are frequently missing in modern day life.
Your eagerly mastered Taekwondo skills will most likely never have to be proven outside the regulated setting of an organized Taekwondo class, however being aware of the fact that you have them will instill you with confidence.
What to Expect From Your First Class
If Taekwondo isn't something that you've ever had a go at before, you will doubtless be curious about what to expect from your first lesson if you make up your mind to sign up. Different Taekwondo schools in the Loughborough area have different ideas about this but roughly; you'll participate in a fifteen to twenty minute warm-up, you will do a certain amount of technical training, you'll learn some forms, you will practice sparring methods and lastly you will warm-down to help your body get back into a relaxed state again.
Anybody who joins a Taekwondo class in Loughborough must also register with British Taekwondo which is the governing body of the sport in the British Isles.

Taekwondo Patterns (Forms)
Forms are a key element of Taekwondo and are essential if you are to master this thrilling sporting activity. Several basic Taekwondo forms have to be learned at the start and more elaborate forms have to be mastered so as to move through the various belts. A Taekwondo form is characterised by a number of variables such as direction, technique and stance.
There are a whole host of competitions in Taekwondo involving all the different styles. They mainly include patterns (forms), breaking and sparring with almost no "hard contact". ITF competitions don't allow too much contact but may permit hand attacks towards the head. WT (World Taekwondo) and Olympic contests only allow sparring. Multi-style tournaments are also held.
Tournaments governed by British Taekwondo rules require various items of protective equipment to be worn, these include things like: a groin protector, forearm guards, shin pads, a mouth guard, hand guards, a red or blue head protector and blue/red body armour. This is necessary on account of the vigorous kicking moves being employed.
