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 rather than a pure competitive club – though there are plenty of opportunities to compete if you want to. Our syllabus is challenging as our aim is to develop martial artists who will have strong and rounded skills in all aspects of Taekwondo.
Our family classes provide a varied approach with a friendly, structured and most importantly fun environment suitable for all ages. Taekwondo provide a rare opportunities for families to participate in a physical activity and sport together.
A typical 60 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.
