Tae Kwon-Do for:
Tae Kwon-Do will improve your fitness, flexibility and most of all your confidence. It will help control and channel your aggression should the need arise. From the very first lesson you will start to develop a whole new range of skills and capabilities with the opportunity to realise self achievement.
In these modern times of increasing violent attacks on women, it has become necessary for women to learn to protect themselves. Martial arts are an excellent way to gain the confidence needed and learn some very useful tools to deal with any such attacks. It is also a great way to keep fit and trim. Tae Kwon-Do is a superb form of self defence that is safe, pratical and most of all fun.
Children who acquire self confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Tae Kwon-Do is arguably the best method of instilling confidence into children and at the same time emphasises the importance of respect and discipline. As a result of its fast, fun and exciting nature, Tae Kwon-Do is practiced by thousands of children throughout the UK and millions world wide. So why don't you help them, help themselves!!
TOTAL FITNESS IN BODY AND MIND
In Tae Kwon-Do you'll learn to stretch and exercise nearly every muscle group in your body. That aspect alone distinguishes the sport from most others. But emphasis on improved concentration, stamina and self control is what really sets Tae Kwon-Do apart from other disciplines. To develop these skills, you'll exercise your mind at least as much as your body. Naturally, the positive effects of that exercise will carry over into other areas of your life too.
Students at all B.L.T.S.A. schools are separated into two or three groups, Beginners/ intermediates and advanced. Beginners learn stretching exercises, the principles of Tae Kwon-Do and the basic kicks, punches and blocks. Intermediate students pratice combinations of movements that require greater concentration. Advanced students continue to refine their techniques, emphasising control, power and accuracy.
Tae Kwon-Do, like any other sport, can be practised in complete safety if simple precautions are followed. At all B.L.T.S.A. schools we stress safety from the day you begin - through careful stretching, controlled techniques, and a positive attitude.
