Beeston Taekwondo (NG9): Developed during the 1940's in Korea, Taekwondo is a martial art that has grown in popularity in recent years. Renowned as a way to learn self-defence, strengthen your body and mind, enhance your self-esteem and boost your confidence, it has been taken up by millions of people worldwide.
Whilst not wanting to deter any specific age group, it should be said that Taekwondo is more suited to younger people in Beeston, being fairly physically demanding. Its teachings of self-discipline and respect for others make it especially appropriate for children. Seniors trying Taekwondo for the very first time often find it too challenging, unless they have kept themselves active. However people that take up Taekwondo in Beeston when they are younger will find they can easily carry it on into older adulthood. The less agile of you might consider something less strenuous like Tai Chi.
The name Taekwondo has only been used since the 1950's, although the discipline started life in Korea in 1945. A group of Korean martial artists in Seoul established some new schools known as "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques. This eventually became known as Taekwondo and the main emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially head kicks, fast kicking strategies and jumping/spinning kicks.Today Beeston Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
The total number of Taekwondo practitioners worldwide, now exceeds 60 million. Since the Sydney Games (2000) Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport and if you want to give it a go, joining a local Beeston Taekwondo club or class is a good way to get involved. There is no reason why you cannot become a master of this exciting martial art, even if you do not aspire to Olympic competition.
The thing about Taekwondo that seems to most appeal to people in Beeston is the self-defence aspect of it. And when you consider the high levels of violence in town and city centres these days, this is hardly surprising. In fact one of the key principles of Taekwondo is learning to defend yourself whilst exercising self-restraint and a respect for others.
There's a pretty good chance that your newly learned Taekwondo skills will never need to be used in the outside world, but it will certainly give you peace of mind knowing that they are there should you need them.
