Pudsey Taekwondo (LS28): If you are looking for ways to learn self-defence, enhance your self-respect, develop your body and mind and build your confidence, you might think about taking up a sport like Taekwondo. This Korean inspired martial art has grown in popularity since its development during the 1940's and 50's.
Because Taekwondo has fairly high physical requirements, it is possibly more suited to the younger generation in Pudsey. That is not to say that the older generation cannot take part in this popular activity, but simply that there could be other martial arts which are more suitable for the less agile of us. Tai Chi would be the perfect illustration.
The sport was first practiced in Korea in about 1945, though the name Taekwondo was not coined until the 1950's. A group of Korean martial artists in Seoul established some new schools known as "kwans", merging various martial arts techniques. Taekwondo, which it eventually became known as, mainly entails kicking movements, especially fast kicking techniques, head kicks and spinning/jumping kicks. Now Pudsey Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
Popular all over the world Taekwondo now has over 60 million practitioners. Joining a local Taekwondo club or class in Pudsey is a good way to get involved with this activity which is now an Olympic sport. There is no reason why you cannot reach a high standard in this thrilling sport, even if you have no desire to compete in the Olympics.
In these times of escalating violence, it is hardly surprising that folks in locations like Pudsey are signing up for self-defence classes such as Taekwondo to help them feel safer and more secure in their everyday life. The self-defence element is one of the primary factors of Taekwondo but at the same time it also promotes self-restraint and a respect for other people, which are characteristics that are largely lacking in this modern age.
While its great to know that you are able to defend yourself when you need to, it's hoped that you never need to do this outside of your local Taekwondo club environment.
