Goaithy Institute of Taekwondo & Aikido is registered and recognized governing body of Taekwondo. Goaithy is one of the leading Institute of Martial Art Studies where you can learn different Martial Arts.Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

Let's take a closer look at the meaning of the word "Tae" "Kwon" "Do." It is composed of three parts as shown in the English spelling, though it is one word in Korean. "Tae" means "foot," "leg," or "to step on"; "Kwon" means "fist," or "fight"; and "Do" means the "way" or "discipline." If we put these three parts together, we can see two important concepts behind "Tae Kwon Do".

Taekwondo means "the right way of using all parts of the body to stop fights and help to build a better and more peaceful world.

Benefits of Taekwondo

If practiced correctly with an experienced instructor martial art training can positively impact the rest of your life. There are many benefits of Taekwondo for all ages depending on what you wish to achieve throughout your training. Martial art training is something which should not have an age limit on because everyone regardless of age and ability can get something positive back out of their Taekwondo training if they are taught correctly.

SELF DEFENCE

Learning the ability to defend yourself has a lot to do with self confidence, one compliments the other. Self defence is a natural by-product of any martial art and is one of the main reasons why people continue to train, to ensure that the skills they have learnt are at the forefront of their mind.

SELF CONFIDENCE

A lot of adults as well as juniors have low confidence and self esteem before and after they step foot on the floor to train and this is one of the main reasons for people to join a Taekwondo club. Through your Taekwondo training you should automatically gain more confidence both physically and mentally. Your instructor is instrumental in this, in encouraging you in the right direction and giving you advice as well as positive criticism on your training.

Parts of your Taekwondo training, if you wish to do so, are regular gradings (going for next belts), competitions and educational seminars. However, every single person is an individual and is allowed to go at their own pace when it comes to gradings. If you are in any doubt then go and speak to your instructor. They should know what you are capable of and help you to overcome any anxiety you may have. If you only want to train then that is fine.

DISCIPLINE

Because of the content of Taekwondo training the instructor has to ensure it is taught in a safe environment where no one is going to get hurt. Therefore Taekwondo training should be very strict to ensure students safety. Also because the whole Taekwondo system is built on a ‘respect hierarchy’ students are expected to listen carefully to the instructor and follow instructions. Especially younger students who are renowned for lack of discipline soon learn that if they want to continue training they have to conform to the strict Taekwondo regime.

FITNESS

When starting Taekwondo training no one should worry about their fitness levels. The instructor will recognize that every person has a totally different fitness ability and will discuss it prior to training.

For people who wish to start training to improve their fitness levels Taekwondo exercise works the majority of muscles both upper and lower body and when you reach a higher level requires a certain amount of stamina. Every person as mentioned before is an individual so it is up to yourself how much energy you exert into your training.

FLEXIBILITY

Again when first starting training try not to worry about your lack of flexibility. This is like anything you do and is just practice, irrespective of age. Taekwondo training does require a certain level of flexibility but this will come with time and your instructor will help you and tell you the stretches you should be practicing to improve your flexibility.

COORDINATION

The majority of people favour one side of their body when it comes to writing, throwing a ball or turning around for example. In Taekwondo students are taught to use both sides of their body exactly the same way which improves balance and coordination. Children who struggle with coordination skills often see massive benefits in this area often within weeks of starting training.

HEALTH PURPOSES

Not only is Taekwondo training excellent for your external muscles but through simple breathing exercises it also strengthens your internal organs. You may have found you way here through similar searches to benefits of taekwondo,taekwondo for girls, taekwondo guys,taekwondo schools,taekwondo for guy,taekwondo for guys,taekwondo girls,kids taekwondo,taekwondo schools.
