Adult Taekwondo (Ages 12+)

Taekwondo is a Korean Martial Art and Olympic Sport.  The martial art side of Taekwondo includes a full range of upper body strikes and blocks but it is best known probably for its fast and dynamic kicks.  In 2000 Taekwondo became a full Olympic sport and Bluewave teaches this World Taekwondo / Olympic style of Taekwondo; the only club in Basingstoke to do so.

The club's syllabus covers traditional technical martial arts skills, self defence and sport.  We are first and foremost a martial arts club adult2rather than a pure competitive club - though there are plenty of opportunities to compete if you want to. Our syllabus is deliberately challenging as our aim is to develop martial artists who will have strong and rounded skills in all aspects of Taekwondo.

We welcome adult beginners of all ages and levels of initial fitness, whether you are new to the martial arts or have trained in the past. Our adult classes are structured to provide a varied approach with a friendly and relaxed environment suited to adult learning. A typical 90 minute class will consist of a dynamic warm up, focused work on 2 or 3 aspects of Taekwondo which will vary session by session, followed up a cool down. The adult classes have a higher level of focus on self defence and patterns (poomsae) than the junior classes as well as including more periods of self directed practice.
