Hope you are all keeping healthy and safe.
It is important to keep a level of fitness and flexibility while you are not at the club training regularly. Within a couple of weeks of inactivity your fitness levels will start to drop and your flexibility will start to reduce. Therefore I have put a training guide together, shown below. It is an approx. 30 min session covering the aspects of aerobic and anaerobic fitness, muscle strength, flexibility and basic Taekwondo skills. This can be done 2-3 times a week, in conjunction with any fitness training you maybe currently doing (running, walking, cycling, resistance training with weights etc.). I have also listed some links containing some videos of good examples of patterns and set sparring and a website that would allow you to test your theory. If anyone has any queries or questions or wants any help with any aspect of training while we are off, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me either by phone or email. I will try and keep some regular posts going on the website.
For people who currently pay training fee’s via direct debit, I suggest you cancel these for now and re-instate them when we return to normal training. For anyone who has recently paid via direct debit or if anyone forgets to cancel them, don’t worry, I will keep a record of these payments so you can use these for future payments of such things as training fee’s, licences, grading’s, equipment and competitions.
So keep practising, stay healthy and fit and above all stay safe.
