Hartlepool Taekwondo (TS24): 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 boost your confidence, enhance your self-respect, learn self-defence and strengthen your mind and body, Taekwondo might be just the activity for you.
While not wanting to deter any particular age group, it has to be said that Taekwondo is more suitable for younger people in Hartlepool, being quite physically demanding. Its encouragement of self-discipline and respect for others make it especially appropriate for children. Older adults trying Taekwondo for the first time often find it too challenging, unless they have continually kept themselves active. However those who take up Taekwondo in Hartlepool at a young age will find they can comfortably carry it on into older adulthood. Something a bit less demanding like Tai Chi might be more suitable for the less agile of you.
Taekwondo started in Korea in 1945. Some new schools called "kwans" were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts devotees, mixing a number of various martial arts techniques. Kicking movements, in particular rapid kicking methods, head-height kicks and jumping/turning kicks are the main focus of Taekwondo, as it eventually became known. Now Hartlepool Taekwondo classes stick to this tradition.
Taekwondo is popular with the people of Hartlepool and with over 60 million others across the world. This sport has even featured in the Olympic Games since 2000, and if you would like to get involved, heading along to your local Hartlepool Taekwondo class or club is a good starting point. While you may not aspire to Olympic competition, there's no reason why you can't become a master of this exhilarating martial art and have an amazing time along the way.
People in Hartlepool take up Taekwondo for many reasons but it is the self-defence aspect that appeals to most. You should not be surprised by this, when you take into account the high incidence of violence seen in today's town and city centres. Being able to defend yourself is a key factor of Taekwondo, but this is tempered by learning self-restraint and a respect for others.
