Redcar Taekwondo (TS10): If you are looking to take up a new activity that will help you to develop your mind and body, learn some self-defence techniques, build your confidence and bolster your self-respect, you might consider Taekwondo as a possible candidate. This more modern martial art has quickly gained popularity since being developed in the 1940's in Korea.
Taekwondo is an ideal sport for children in Redcar, because it teaches self-discipline and a respect for others. Its more physical aspects make it more suited to younger people. Unless they are particularly fit and active, older adults may find it too physically taxing. People in Redcar who take up Taekwondo when they are young find it easy to continue when they get older. If you are less agile you could always try something a bit softer such as Tai Chi or Yoga.
The sport was first practiced in Korea in around 1945, though the name Taekwondo was not used until the 1950's. A group of Korean martial artists in Seoul established some new schools known as "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques. This eventually became known as Taekwondo and the main emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially head kicks, fast kicking methods and turning/jumping kicks.Today Redcar Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
Nowadays an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has more than sixty million followers all around the world, and while you may not have any aspirations to be an Olympic Games sportsman, you can still join a Taekwondo club or class to learn what will no doubt prove to be a worthwhile and interesting pastime.
In these modern times of ever-increasing violence, it is little surprise that folks in places like Redcar are getting involved in self-defence classes such as Taekwondo to enable them to feel safer in their local environment. The self-defence element is one of the primary factors of Taekwondo but it also encourages self-restraint and a respect for others around us, which are disciplines that are frequently absent in this modern age.
Your newly learned Taekwondo skills will most likely never have to be proven outside of a dedicated Taekwondo class, however being aware of the fact that you have them will instill you with confidence.
Your First Lesson
If Taekwondo isn't a sport that you have ever had a go at previously, you'll doubtless be wondering what to expect from your very first class if you make your mind up to join. Different Taekwondo schools in Redcar have different ideas about this but roughly; you'll participate in a fifteen to twenty minute warm-up, you will do some technical training, you'll learn some forms, you'll practice sparring strategies and finally you'll warm-down to get your body back into a state of relaxation once again.
If you would like to sign up to a Taekwondo class in Redcar, you will also have to become a member of the sport's official regulating body, namely British Taekwondo. By going to British Taekwondo's official website you will be able to obtain details on health and safety, referees and coaching, events, first aid, coaching courses, clubs and members, launching a new club, news, equality and safeguarding, and a lot more Taekwondo related facts.
Mastering Taekwondo necessitates learning a number of disciplines and techniques and one of the key parts of Taekwondo is its forms (also known as Poomse or patterns). These are sequences of direction, stance and technique which need to be mastered in order for pupils to progress through the different dans (grades/belts).
With there being various disciplines of Taekwondo there's never been any recognised system for assigning belts (grades). What exists however is fairly similar and involves 2 belt groupings "senior" and "junior" (black and colour), each of these groups is split into levels, 8 to 12 colours for juniors and nine for the seniors.
Taekwondo Safety Equipment
Safety gear like forearm protectors, shin protectors, hand guards, a red or blue trunk guard (hogu), a red or blue head guard, a gum shield and a groin protector have to be used in all matches supervised by British Taekwondo. Protection from injuries is vital thanks to the formidable kicks that are an integral part of this activity.
So, what are you hoping to get from doing Taekwondo? Well, that's an excellent question, and the answer to that will be different for individual people. The majority of participants will just wish to improve their fitness, meet new people and gain more self-confidence. We are certainly not all going to scale the dizzy heights of Jade Jones or Lutalo Muhammad, although maybe you will, you never know?
