Older adults may find it somewhat too demanding unless they are particularly fit and active. However those who take up Taekwondo in Cheshunt at a young age will find they can easily carry it on into older adulthood. The less agile of you might consider something softer like Tai Chi.
The sport was first practiced in Korea in around 1945, though the name Taekwondo was not used until the 1950's. Some exciting new schools called "kwans" were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts lovers, mixing a number of various martial arts techniques. The focus of Taekwondo, as it later became known, is on kicking manoeuvres, in particular head kicks, spinning/jumping kicks and rapid kicking styles. These days Cheshunt Taekwondo classes comply with this tradition.
Since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport. This has made it even more popular worlwide with some 60 million people actively taking part in classes. And it is by joining a Taekwondo club or class that you can begin your journey of learning this fascinating art.
