Whitnash Taekwondo (CV31): Mastering a new skill is always satisfying and the martial arts are a popular choice with people in Whitnash nowadays. Trying a sport like Taekwondo enables you to enhance your self-respect, learn self-defence, build your confidence and strengthen your mind and body. A more modern martial art, Taekwondo was first developed in the 1940's and 50's in Korea.
Since Taekwondo has quite high physical requirements, it's perhaps more suited to the younger generation in Whitnash. That isn't to say that older people can't participate in this particular activity, but merely that there might be other martial arts that are more suitable for the less agile of us. Tai Chi is a perfect example.
The name Taekwondo was only coined in the 1950's, although the sport started life in Korea in 1945. In Seoul, a group of Korean martial arts fanatics founded some exciting new schools which they called "kwans", practicing a blend of martial arts techniques. In Taekwondo the main focus is on kicking, in particular jumping/spinning kicks, head-height kicks and rapid kicking styles. These days Whitnash Taekwondo classes adhere to this tradition.
With over sixty million individuals engaged in Taekwondo classes all around the globe, this has certainly become an extremely popular pastime, and if you really master the martial art you may possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part ever since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
While there is a lot to be gained by mastering Taekwondo, it is the aspect of self-defence that most Whitnash people find appealing. You should not be surprised by this, when you take into account the high incidence of violence seen in today's city centres. It's a key factor of Taekwondo that you can become confident in your ability to defend yourself yet respect others and exercise self-restraint.
Although it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have these self-defence skills in your locker, the chances are you will never be required to use them outside of an organized Taekwondo class.
