Camborne Taekwondo (TR14): If you have been thinking about taking up a hobby to achieve some specific goals such as to bolster your self-respect, strengthen your body and mind, learn some useful self-defence techniques and build your confidence, Taekwondo could be just the thing for you. A more modern martial art, Taekwondo was first developed in the 1940's and 50's in Korea.
While people of all ages in Camborne 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. Unless they are particularly fit and active, older adults may find it too physically taxing. For those people who take up Taekwondo when they are younger, continuing the experience into adulthood should not be a problem. The less agile of you might consider something softer like Tai Chi.
Taekwondo is one of the more recently developed of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. A group of Korean martial artists in Seoul established some new schools known as "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques. Taekwondo, which it eventually became known as, mostly involves kicking manoeuvres, especially head-height kicks, jumping/spinning kicks and fast kicking methods.
Popular around the world Taekwondo now has over 60 million students.
