Many people believe that they are too old in order to learn Taekwondo once they get past a certain age. However, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. While it’s better to learn Taekwondo at a younger age due to less risk of injury, it is still a practice that can be valuable for people of all ages. With the ability to train in Taekwondo, the elderly will have a solid foundation of basic self defense and should be able to protect themselves from danger.
- There are many things involved in taekwondo such as kicking, jumping, spinning and high intensity acrobatics.
- One of the issues with starting this type of technique at an older age is that you’re more prone to injury.
- Try to work on getting stronger in your core and your legs as they are the base for your body.
“Taekwondo circles around intelligence and the right attitude. For this reason, you’re never too old to begin with Taekwondo.”
