Sileby Taekwondo (LE12): If you would like to boost your confidence, learn to defend yourself better, strengthen your mind and body and bolster your self-esteem, an ideal sport to take up is Taekwondo. This Korean inspired martial art has grown in popularity since its development during the 1940's.
Due to its more physical elements, Taekwondo is perhaps more suited to the younger person in Sileby and is especially appropriate for children as it's brilliant for nurturing self-discipline and respect for others. Seniors trying Taekwondo for the very first time often find it too challenging, unless they have kept themselves active. People in Sileby who take up Taekwondo when they are young find it easy to continue when they get older. Tai Chi or something similarly less strenuous might be more suited to the less agile of you.
Based mainly around high-kicking moves and manoeuvres like head kicks, fast kicking styles and spinning/jumping kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of various 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 Jido Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Songmu Kwan, Mooduk Kwan and Changmu Kwan.
With more than sixty million individuals participating in Taekwondo sessions all over the world, this has unquestionably become a popular and worthwhile activity, and if you become really good at this sport you might even one day qualify for the Olympic Games, of which it has been an integral part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
For the people of Sileby who wish to learn a martial art, a top priority is the element of self-defence. As this is a key concept of Taekwondo, it's not difficult to see the appeal of this particular sport. With the extra bonus of developing self-restraint and having a degree of respect for others, getting involved in a local Sileby Taekwondo class seems to be an easy decision.
Although it will give you peace of mind being aware that you have those self-defence skills in your locker, the likelihood is that you will never be required to test them outside the monitored environment of an actual Taekwondo class.
What to Expect From Your First Lesson
Different Taekwondo clubs in Sileby will have different ideas about what learners should be covering on their first lesson, however to give you an understanding of what you should expect most initial Taekwondo lessons will incorporate a warm-up, a bit of sparring, learning simple Poomse (forms), a quick introduction to blocking techniques, stances, hand attacks and kicks (technical training) and a warm-down to stretch weary muscles and get the body back to a state of harmony.

Sileby Taekwondo for Beginners
With any sport or activity we need to begin someplace, and Taekwondo's no different. Even the finest Sileby Taekwondo masters were total novices at one point. So, exactly what can you expect as a complete beginner at Taekwondo? A beginners class should give its students sufficient instruction to teach them the fundamentals and enable them to build confidence as they move forward. The perfect beginners class needs to be fun as well as educational, when individuals are enjoying themselves they're more invested and are going to learn quicker.
Taekwondo Safety Equipment
In all contests, events and competitions being held under the patronage of British Taekwondo, safety gear such as blue or red body armour (hogu), forearm protectors, shin guards, a groin protector, hand guards, a blue/red head guard and a mouth guard is compulsory. The kicking tactics which are part of Taekwondo could cause injuries and this helps to make this activity much safer for its competitors.
Taekwondo Forms (Poomse)
Taekwondo forms (also referred to as Poomse or patterns) are characterized by specified aspects such as technique, direction and stance. From the start of your Taekwondo journey you are going to learn some of the important forms, and so as to move through the grades (belts) you'll have to master some more complicated ones.
Taekwondo Belts (Rank)
With there being many different disciplines of Taekwondo there has never been any standardized arrangement for allocating belts (levels). What exists however is quite similar and consists of 2 belt groups "senior" and "junior" (black and colour), each of these groupings is split into ranks, 8 to 12 colours in the case of juniors and nine for the seniors.
Ranks in Taekwondo in the UK are represented by what are known as "Kup". The highest rank is First Kup and the lowest (beginners) is Tenth Kup. If you're curious about the Taekwondo belt order, it is as follows, and is denoted by a number of different colours i.e. white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediary belts with stripes, namely 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 of Taekwondo in Sileby will start out with the 10th Kup (White Belt), and proceed through the different coloured belts until they earn the Red With Black Stripe Belt (1st Kup).
When this training has been accomplished, Sileby Taekwondo trainees become known as "black belt candidates", and they must then progress through an additional nine ranks or Dans if they're to become a Taekwondo "Black Belt", which is the supreme accolade. Therefore, the bottom line is, there are 3 main groups in the Taekwondo belt order, that is Junior, Senior and Black Belts. The Taekwondo Belts in the Junior group comprise; 10th (White), 9th (White With Yellow Stripe), 8th (Yellow), and 7th (Yellow With Green Stripe). The Taekwondo Belts in the Senior division comprise; 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 qualification process which will take many years.

The Taekwondo Kicks
Taekwondo is perhaps best known for its acrobatic kicking, here are just a few of the basic kicks that you will learn as a beginner: Back Kick (Dwo Chagi), Side Kick (Yeop Chagi), Front Kick (Ap Chagi), Push Kick (Meereo Chagi), Roundhouse Kick (Dollyo Chagi), Axe Kick (Naeryeo Chagi), Crescent Kick (Bandal Chagi), Hook or Whip Kick (Huryeo Chagi). Taekwondo Blocks: To divert and stop an inbound Taekwondo attack, blocks (called Makgi) are implemented. Engaging the hand and parts of the arm, they're held in particular positions. Each kind of attack necessitates a particular sort of block, counter-attacking moves can be produced by combining a block with another punch or kick. The main blocks include: Double Forearm Block, Upper Block, Single Forearm Block, Knife Hand Block, Double Knife Hand Block, Nine Block, Palm Block, Rising Block and Low Block.
Taekwondo Competitions and Tournaments
Tournaments and competitions are an important part of the overall Taekwondo experience, and all the various styles around the world hold tournaments where Taekwondo masters gather together to compete. Hard contact is rarely allowed in any of these competitions which mainly incorporate patterns (forms), sparring and breaking. Sparring only is permitted in Olympic and World Taekwondo tournaments, whilst specified hand attacks are permitted in International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) events.
