Tickhill Taekwondo (DN11): Established during the nineteen forties in Korea, South-East Asia, Taekwondo is a martial art that has grown in popularity in the last 20 years or so. Recognized as a means by which to develop your body and mind, learn some useful self-defence techniques, bolster your self-respect and boost your confidence, it's been adopted by tens of millions of individuals worldwide.
It needs to be said that Taekwondo can be pretty physically challenging, which can intimidate the older and less agile folks in Tickhill from becoming involved. To be truthful, the most common people participating in Taekwondo classes are kids and the younger generation, but certainly older individuals who're in great physical health can easily participate and benefit considerably from this sport.
The discipline was formulated in Korea in 1945, though it wasn't given the name Taekwondo until the 1950's. This mixture of various martial arts techniques were practiced in some new schools in Seoul called "kwans", founded by a group of Korean martial artists. In Taekwondo the focus is on kicking, especially head kicks, rapid kicking styles and jumping/spinning kicks. Nowadays Tickhill Taekwondo classes abide by this tradition.
At present an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has over 60 million practitioners all over the world, and even though you might not have any ambitions to be an Olympic Games medalist, you can still enroll in a Taekwondo club or class to master what will undoubtedly turn out to be a fascinating and fulfilling pastime.
For the people of Tickhill who like the idea of learning a martial art, a major priority is the aspect of self-defence. As this is a key principle of Taekwondo, it's not difficult to appreciate the attraction of this unique sport. With the added benefit of developing self-restraint and having a deep-rooted respect for those around you, registering for a local Tickhill Taekwondo class would seem to be a no brainer.
Although it will instill you with self-confidence knowing that you have such self-defence skills tucked away inside you, the odds are you will never have to use them outside of a dedicated Taekwondo class.

Taekwondo Belts (Promotion)
In Taekwondo there is really no form of uniformity in regards to ranking and belts. It all depends upon which style you are considering, since there are so many different Taekwondo styles and rules. However, they're usually separated into two groups "junior (colour) belts and "senior" (black) belts. The colour/junior rankings range from white to red, with from 8 to 12 rankings, whilst the black/senior belts usually have 9 grades.
Rankings in Taekwondo in the UK are depicted by what generally known as "Kup". The highest rank is First Kup and the lowest (beginners) is Tenth Kup. The Taekwondo belt order, just like most of the martial arts is portrayed by a number of colours, these colours are white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediate 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. The 10th Kup (White Belt) is what Taekwondo rookies in Tickhill will start out with, they will then advance through the colours, eventually earning the Red With Black Stripe Belt (1st Kup), which will probably take approximately 3-4 years of lessons and training.
After successfully completing this challenge, Taekwondo trainees in Tickhill become "black belt candidates" which requires them to move through yet another nine ranks (Dans) up until they achieve the ultimate accolade of "Black Belt" status. Thus, the Taekwondo belt order can be put into 3 groupings; Junior Belt, Senior Belt and Black Belt. The Junior group of Taekwondo Belts comprise; White (Tenth), White With a Yellow Stripe (Ninth), Yellow (Eighth), and Yellow With a Green Stripe (Seventh). The Senior group of Taekwondo Belts are; Green (Sixth), Green With a Blue Stripe (Fifth), Blue (Fourth), Blue With a Red Stripe (Third), Red (Second), and Red With a Black Stripe (First). The Black division of Taekwondo Belts comprise First to Ninth Dan rankings, and demands many years of dedication and training.
