When did you join Tukido?
What did you like about it?
How dynamic it was. I used to always have an idea of martial arts being all serious and rigid, but after my first lesson I was literally buzzing with energy. And I loved how you got to work out in a team of people, yet at your own pace, for me that was a perfect inbetween team sport and individual workout.
What are the benefits of Tukido training? It’s definitively a good cardio workout, sort of HIT type I suppose where the sparring forms and the actual sparring test your stamina every single time, no matter how many years you have been training for.
It also gives you a practical skills, Tukido literally means ‘the art of skilful combat’ and that’s what it is in the first place – a martial art that will make you really fit really quickly, will teach you a proper self defence, good sparring skills and a massive amount of confidence. And a life-time friendships.
What would you say to anyone looking to join?
The phrase ‘you don’t need to be fit to join’ is really not a cliché – just remember, every black belt was a white belt once. And a lot of students did not join until their late 20’s, 30’s or even later. This type of training really does work to you own abilities. Plus, you will never get bored with it, it is such great and constant challenge.
