Trowbridge Taekwondo (BA14): Initially introduced in Korea in the nineteen forties and fifties, Taekwondo is a fast paced combatative sport that has become more and more popular over the past thirty years or so. For those of you who wish to strengthen your mind and body, bolster your self-respect, learn to defend yourself better and build your confidence, Taekwondo could be the perfect pastime or fitness activity.
While people of all ages in Trowbridge can of course participate in Taekwondo, it is particularly suited to the younger generation since it can be quite physically demanding, children can especially benefit from its teachings of self-discipline and the respect of others. 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 Trowbridge, started when they were younger. The less agile of you might find that Tai Chi which is a bit softer is more suitable.
Taekwondo was only developed fairly recently in Korea (1945). In Seoul, a group of Korean martial arts fanatics established some new schools which they named "kwans", practicing a combination of martial arts techniques. Taekwondo, which it eventually became known as, mostly involves kicking manoeuvres, especially turning/jumping kicks, rapid kicking techniques and head kicks.Today Trowbridge Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
With over sixty million fitness enthusiasts engaged in Taekwondo sessions all around the globe, this has certainly become a popular and beneficial activity, and if you become really good at this martial art you might possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part ever since the 2000 Sydney Games.
For many folks in Trowbridge, it's the self-defence element of Taekwondo that has the most appeal. And in these times of ever increasing violence, particularly in city and town centres, it's little surprise that this sits high up on people's list of priorities. It is a key factor of Taekwondo that you are able to gain more confidence in your capacity to defend yourself and at the same time learn to respect other people and practice self-restraint.
Your newly mastered Taekwondo skills will likely never have to be proven outside the regulated atmosphere of an actual Taekwondo class, however being aware of the fact that you have them will give you peace of mind.
Your First Taekwondo Class
For those of you who've never attempted Taekwondo before, you'll no doubt be intrigued to know just what to expect from your first class. This may vary from class to class but will typically involve all or most of the following. An initial warm up lasting 15-20 minutes, a bit of technical training covering some kicks, stances, hand attacks and blocking techniques, learning some forms (or Poomse), a few ideas on sparring including timing, movement and the targeting of attacks, and to finish off a warm down to stretch muscles and relax.

Taekwondo for Beginners
As with any activity or sport we have to begin somewhere, and Taekwondo's just the same. Even the uppermost Trowbridge Taekwondo masters were total rookies at one time. So, what can you expect as a total novice at Taekwondo? A beginners class should give its enrollees ample coaching to teach them the basic principles and enable them to build self-confidence as they progress. A perfect beginners class must be enjoyable as well as educational, when people are having fun they are far more invested and are going to learn much faster.
The benefits that you get out of Taekwondo will be directly related to what you invest in it (as is the case with life in general). Many of you will merely wish to meet different people, make new friends and improve your fitness, some might wish to take part in competitions or tournaments or possibly even the Olympics. But bear in mind, we can't all be a Jade Jones or a Lutalo Muhammad. 👊
