Tring Taekwondo (HP23): First introduced in Korea in the nineteen forties and fifties, Taekwondo is a fast combatative sport that's become more and more popular over the last 30 years or so. For those of you who want to enhance your self-respect, learn some self-defence moves, develop your mind and body and build your confidence, Taekwondo could be the perfect pastime or fitness activity.
While not wanting to discourage any particular age group, it has to be said that Taekwondo is more suited to younger people in Tring, being quite physically demanding. Its teachings of self-discipline and respect for others make it especially appropriate for children. Older adults trying Taekwondo for the first time often find it too taxing, unless they have kept themselves active. Quite a few of the older adults who do Taekwondo in Tring, started when they were younger. Tai Chi or something similarly softer might be more suitab le for the less agile of you.
Based primarily around kicking manoeuvres and moves like fast kicking strategies, head-height kicks and jumping/turning kicks, Taekwondo was created from the practices of various diverse martial arts, by a group of Seoul martial arts experts in new schools called "Kwans" in the nineteen forties and fifties. These "Kwans" were given the names Jido Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Mooduk Kwan, Changmu Kwan and Songmu Kwan.
Popular all over the world Taekwondo now has over 60 million practitioners. Joining a local Tring Taekwondo club or class is a good way to get involved in this sport which has even featured in the Olympic Games since the Sydney Games of 2000. While nobody would expect you to get to Olympic standard, you can certainly be one of the best Taekwondo exponents in Tring.
For a lot of people in Tring, it's the self-defence aspect of Taekwondo that has the most appeal. And in these days of increasing violence, especially in town and city centres, it really is little surprise that this sits high on people's priority lists. It is a primary factor of Taekwondo that you are able to become more confident in your capability to defend yourself and at the same time learn to respect those around you and learn self-restraint.
Whilst it will give you peace of mind being aware that you have such self-defence skills in your locker, the chances are you will never need to use them outside of an organized Taekwondo class.
