Fareham Taekwondo (PO14): 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 some self-defence moves, strengthen your mind and body, enhance your self-respect and boost your confidence, it has been taken up by millions of people worldwide.
Due to its rather more physical aspects, Taekwondo is perhaps more suited to the younger person in Fareham and is particularly suitable for children as it is great for developing self-discipline and respect for others. Older adults may find it somewhat too demanding unless they are particularly fit and active. However those who take up Taekwondo in Fareham 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.
Based mostly around kicking manoeuvres like turning/jumping kicks, fast kicking techniques and head-height kicks, Taekwondo was formulated from the techniques of different martial arts, by a group of Seoul martial arts experts in new schools called "Kwans" during the 1940's and 1950's. These "Kwans" had the names Songmu Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Changmu Kwan, Jido Kwan, Mooduk Kwan.
Taekwondo has become very popular in Fareham and all around the world, with over 60 million practitioners worldwide. Joining a local Fareham 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.
In these times of increasing violence, it is hardly surprising that people in places like Fareham are taking up self-defence classes like Taekwondo to help them feel safer in their local environment. The self-defence aspect is one of the key factors of Taekwondo but it also teaches self-restraint and a respect for other people, which are disciplines that are largely missing in modern day life.
Hopefully, outside your local Taekwondo club environment, you'll never need to apply your newly discovered skills to defend yourself.
Your First Class: If you have never done Taekwondo before you may be a little concerned as to what to expect on your first class. This will vary from school to school but will usually involve some or all of the following. A 15-20 minute warm up to increase heart rate and loosen muscles, some technical training involving learning some stances, hand attacks, blocks and kicks, learning some forms (or Poomse), an introduction to sparring including movement, timing and the targeting of attacks, and lastly a warm down to relax and stretch tired muscles.
