Maghull Taekwondo (L31): Initially developed in Korea during the 1940s and 1950s, Taekwondo is a fast paced combatative sport which has become increasingly popular over the past three decades. For those of you who want to learn some useful self-defence techniques, boost your confidence, develop your body and mind and enhance your self-esteem, Taekwondo could be the ideal hobby or fitness activity.
It must be asserted that Taekwondo can be very physically challenging, which can put off the less agile and more elderly folks in Maghull from becoming involved. To be honest, the most frequent participants of Taekwondo classes are children and younger people, but obviously older people who are in decent physical condition can easily get involved and get benefits from this sport.
With its beginnings in 1940's Korea, Taekwondo is obviously one of the more recently created of the martial arts and entails primarily high-kicking moves such as head kicks, spinning/jumping kicks and fast kicking methods. It started when schools known as "kwans" were founded by a group of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul, South Korea.
With more than 60 million fitness enthusiasts participating in Taekwondo instruction all over the world, this has certainly become a popular pastime, and if you become really expert at the sport you may possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it has been a part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
In these modern times of ever-increasing violence, it's hardly surprising that people in places like Maghull are getting involved in self-defence training such as Taekwondo to enable them to feel safer and more secure in their everyday life. The self-defence aspect is one of the primary benefits of Taekwondo but at the same time it also teaches self-restraint and a respect for others around us, which are qualities that are largely absent in this modern age.
Hopefully you won't ever be required to use your newly perfected Taekwondo techniques for defending yourself outside of your local club environment, however it is good to know they are there if you need them.
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. The following will give you an idea, but this may vary from school to school. A warm up of fifteen to twenty minutes to increase your heart rate and reduce stiffness in the muscles, some technical training involving learning some hand attacks, kicks, stances and blocks, learning your the basic forms or patterns, a look at sparring including movement, timing and attack targeting, and lastly a warm down to prevent cramping and muscle spasms.
If you want to join a Taekwondo class in Maghull, you'll also have to register with the sport's governing body, namely British Taekwondo.
