Bushey Taekwondo (WD23): A Korean martial art that was developed during the 1940's, Taekwondo has continued to grow in popularity since then. If you would like to build your confidence, strengthen your mind and body, enhance your self-esteem and learn to defend yourself better, Taekwondo might be just the activity for you.
It has to be said that Taekwondo can be quite physically demanding, which might put off the older and less agile people in Bushey from taking this up. To be fair, the most common participants of Taekwondo classes are children and the younger generation, but certainly older people who are in good physical health can easily take part and get benefits from this activity.
With its beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently developed of the martial arts and involves mainly kicking moves such as head-height kicks, rapid kicking techniques and jumping/spinning kicks. It began when schools called "kwans" were established by a group of Korean martial artists in Seoul, South Korea.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Bushey and all around the world, with over 60 million practitioners worldwide. Joining a local Bushey 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 you may not aspire to Olympic competition, there is no reason why you cannot become a master of this exciting martial art and have some fun along the way.
A key aspect of Taekwondo is self-defence, and of course this is one of the main reasons that people in Bushey join classes and take up the sport. There has been a worrying increase in violent behaviour in recent years and this is especially prevalent in town and city centres around Hertfordshire and the UK in general. The beauty of Taekwondo though, is that it also teaches self-discipline and respect for others, not such common qualities in Bushey nowadays.
These self-defence techniques may at some point come in handy in the outside world, although it is more likely that you will only be using them within a monitored class environment. However it's a nice feeling knowing that you can always defend yourself if you need to.
Your First Lesson: If you have just booked your very first Taekwondo class, you'll be wondering what to expect.

A fifteen to twenty minute warm up to loosen your muscles and increase your heart rate, some technical training comprising some kicks, blocking techniques, stances and hand attacks, an introduction to some Poomse (or forms), a look at sparring including good timing, precise movement and the accurate targeting of attacks, and last but not least a warm down to stretch muscles and loosen up.
