Our show team consists of a group of youngsters who are also members of the federal state competitive squad. So unlike the adult training group where I am exercising. We focus on "fit for fun". And fun it is!So what is Taekwondo? It is the way of the foot and the hand, a martial art originating in Korea. It combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. Gyeorugi (pronounced [kjʌɾuɡi]), a type of sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000.
Taekwondo is my "active" hobby, when I am not cooking, baking or crocheting. I started more than 20 years ago, had a long break of nearly 10 years and started anew three years ago. It is still my favourite sport, even though I have to accept, that I am not 20 years old anymore, nor 30 but already 41! So techniques and jumps have lost their hight. Still an excellent way to keep in shape and to have some fun exercising.
