Burgess Hill & Crawley Taekwon-Do Schools
In Taekwon-Do there are over 3000 different techniques which include punches, strikes, blocks, kicks and the flying and jumping kicks that Taekwon-Do is famous for. A student will learn the basic techniques; kicks, strikes, punches, blocks, developing strength, good muscle tone, balance, coordination, speed, power, flexibility, learning defense against attacks of all types including weapons such as knives and sticks.
The physical training side of Taekwon-Do can be quite tough, but is done on a gradient to suit every person from the youngest to those getting on in their years, enabling the most unfit person to join the class and develop their fitness over a period of time being pushed further only as their fitness increases. A person is often surprised at how quickly and how far their fitness levels reach in a relatively short period of time. And as a student continues training their fitness improves to a very high degree along with their proficiency in the art.
The classes are friendly with a good atmosphere and the general commaradie encourages the student to develop in their training as well as constant attention and input from the instructors and the seniors in the classes.
Burgess Hill and Crawley Taekwon-Do are affiliated to the International Taekwon-Do Federation and follows the Taekwon-Do as originally meant by Grand Master General Choi Hong Hi, Father and Founder of Taekwon-Do.
Many schools no longer teach pure Taekwon-Do but teach some watered down variant mixed with other martial arts, or along lines so far removed from Taekwon-Do that it barely resembles the art and loses all the power and dynamics that real Taekwon-Do gives a student. It is important for any student who wants to learn true Taekwon-Do to ensure they train at a school still strictly aligned to the ITF, teaching on the principals provided and laid down by General Choi.
