March Taekwondo (PE15): If you are looking for ways to build your confidence, enhance your self-respect, learn self-defence and strengthen your body and mind, you might consider taking up a sport like Taekwondo. This more modern martial art has quickly grown in popularity since being developed in the 1940's in Korea.
The mere mention of Taekwondo, brings to mind images of sprightly young children doing punching and kicking exercises. Keeping up with the physical demands of the sport might be easier for the younger generation, but this does not mean that people of any age can participate in, and enjoy the many benefits of this activity. Being fairly agile does however help you to enjoy all the intricacies of Taekwondo.
Based largely around kicking manoeuvres and moves like head kicks, rapid kicking styles and spinning/jumping kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of various diverse martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts specialists in new schools called "Kwans" in the nineteen forties and fifties. These "Kwans" had the names Changmu Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Mooduk Kwan, Jido Kwan and Songmu Kwan.
Taekwondo is popular with the people of March and with over 60 million others worldwide. This sport has even featured in the Olympic Games since 2000, and if you want to get involved, joining a local March Taekwondo club or class is a good place to start. While nobody would expect you to get to Olympic standard, you can certainly be one of the best Taekwondo exponents in March.
For many people in March, it is the self-defence aspect of Taekwondo that has the most appeal. And when you consider the high levels of violence in town and city centres these days, this is hardly surprising. It is a key factor of Taekwondo that you can become confident in your ability to defend yourself and at the same time learn to respect others and learn self-restraint.
There is a pretty good likelihood that your newly mastered Taekwondo skills will never have to be used in your day to day life, but it will certainly give you a secure feeling knowing that they are sitting in the background should you need them.

Beginners Taekwondo March

Beginners classes are fabulous, since there is no pressure and everything is carried out at a slow, relaxed pace. Having fun whilst learning is the main goal initially and students who are having a great time tend to learn a lot faster and digest significantly more of what they're being taught. Even Taekwondo masters started out as naive newbies, so take that very first step and who knows where you'll wind up!
Taekwondo Safety Equipment
Tournaments regulated by British Taekwondo policies require various items of protective gear to be worn, these include: a mouth guard, a blue or red head guard, hand guards, shin guards, forearm guards, blue or red body armour (hogu) and a groin guard. This is necessary on account of the formidable kicking attacks being practiced.
Taekwondo Belts (Rank)
In Tae kwon do there's not really any standardisation in relation to ranking and belts. It's all subject to which style you happen to be looking at, since there are such a diversity of Taekwondo styles and rules. However, they are generally divided into two groupings "junior (colour) belts and "senior" (black) belts. The junior/colour ranks consist of white to red, with anything from 8 to 12 rankings, whilst the black/senior belts generally have nine ranks.
In the UK Taekwondo has a sequence of ranks (belts) that are known as "Kup", these ranks go from Tenth (lowest) to First (highest). The Taekwondo belt order, like many of the martial arts is portrayed by a number of different colours, these colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediate belts with stripes, 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 in March starting out in Taekwondo will begin with the White Belt (10th Kup), and proceed through the colours until they reach the Red With Black Stripe Belt (1st Kup).
Taekwondo students in March become "black belt candidates" once they've successfully completed this process, and they'll then be faced with progressing through an additional nine ranks (called Dans) if they aspire to achieve the ultimate accolade of "Black Belt" in Taekwondo. So, to put it simply, there are three main groupings in the Taekwondo belt order, namely Junior, Senior and Black Belts. The Taekwondo Belts in the Junior division comprise; 10th (White), 9th (White With Yellow Stripe), 8th (Yellow), and 7th (Yellow With Green Stripe). The Taekwondo Belts in the Senior group are; 6th (Green), 5th (Green With Blue Stripe), 4th (Blue), 3rd ( Blue With Red Stripe), 2nd (Red), and 1st (Red With Black Stripe). The Taekwondo Belts in the Black group range from 1st to 9th Dan, a process which takes a considerable number of years.

Taekwondo Forms (Poomse)
Beginners in Taekwondo don't have to worry too much about forms (Poomse, patterns) in the early days, but they will get to grips with some important ones for starters and progress to more challenging "forms" as they move up the belts (dans/grades). A "form" is signified by specified elements of Taekwondo including direction, stance and technique. Learning these techniques is an important part of perfecting Taekwondo.
