Frome Taekwondo (BA11): Introduced in the 1940's in Korea, South-East Asia, Taekwondo is a martial art which has grown in popularity in recent years. Known as a means by which to learn some self-defence techniques, bolster your self-esteem, strengthen your mind and body and build your confidence, it's been adopted by large numbers of fitness enthusiasts internationally.
It must be asserted that Taekwondo can be quite physically challenging, which may unnerve the older and less nimble folks in Frome from getting involved. To be honest, the most frequent participants of Taekwondo classes are kids and the younger generation, but certainly older people who're in good physical health can easily take part and get benefits from this activity.
Based largely around high-kicking manoeuvres like head-height kicks, spinning/jumping kicks and fast kicking strategies, Taekwondo was devised from the techniques of various martial arts, by a number of Seoul martial arts experts in new schools known as "Kwans" during the nineteen forties and fifties. These "Kwans" had the names Songmu Kwan, Chungdo Kwan, Mooduk Kwan, Jido Kwan and Changmu Kwan.
Taekwondo has grown to be very popular in Frome and all over the world, with more than sixty million participants worldwide. Enrolling in a local Frome Taekwondo club or class is a great way to get involved with this sporting activity which has even been included in the Olympic Games ever since the Sydney Games in 2000. Though you may not have any ambitions to get involved in Olympic competition, there is certainly no reason why you shouldn't become a master of this challenging martial art and have a bit of fun along the way.
In these days of escalating violence, it is little surprise that individuals in locations like Frome are getting involved in self-defence training such as Taekwondo to enable them to feel safer and more secure in their local environment. The self-defence aspect is one of the primary factors of Taekwondo but it also promotes self-restraint and a deep respect for those around us, which are qualities that are often absent in 21st century living.
Your eagerly learned Taekwondo skills will most likely never need to be tried and tested outside of a dedicated Taekwondo class, however being aware of the fact that you have them will instill you with self-confidence.

The Basic Taekwondo Kicks

Here are just a few: Front Kick (Ap Chagi), Crescent Kick (Bandal Chagi), Axe Kick (Naeryeo Chagi), Push Kick (Meereo Chagi), Back Kick (Dwo Chagi), Side Kick (Yeop Chagi), Hook or Whip Kick (Huryeo Chagi), Roundhouse Kick (Dollyo Chagi). Blocks: To repulse the numerous hand attacks and kicks there are a similarly diverse selection of "blocks" (Makgi). Using the hand and areas of the arm, they are held in specific positions. Each kind of attack calls for a particular sort of block, counter-attacking movements can be produced by combining a block with a retaliatory kick or punch. The main blocks (makgi) include: Rising Block, Double Knife Hand Block, Low Block, Upper Block, Double Forearm Block, Single Forearm Block, Knife Hand Block, Nine Block and Palm Block.
Taekwondo Forms (Poomse)
Beginners in Taekwondo do not need to fret excessively about forms (patterns, Poomse) at the outset, however they'll have to acquaint themselves with some important ones for starters and move forward to more intricate "forms" as they progress through the various belts (grades/dans). A form is indicated by particular elements of Taekwondo including technique, stance and direction. Getting to grips with such sequences is an important part of mastering Taekwondo.
Taekwondo Belts (Promotion)
The belt and ranking system can get very complicated in Taekwondo since there isn't any standard system throughout the diverse Taekwondo disciplines. Analogies can be found however, and typically there are two distinct belt groupings, represented as "juniors" (colours) and "seniors" (black dans). The number of ranks in the junior group varies over the disciplines but is commonly between eight and twelve belts, while the senior section generally has nine dans or belts.
