If you’re looking to get into a physical sport and start a new hobby, then Taekwondo is definitely one to add to your list! The Asian fighting style has been popular for decades and relies primarily on leg striking rather than hands. But it’s not just the fighting benefits that Taekwondo can bring. There’s much more than that.

So, here are 3 benefits you can get from starting Taekwondo…


It’s great for socialising

Something we love about Taekwondo is that it’s perfect for socialising and making new friends. No matter what your age range or experience, at MYGYM Bristol, we cater for everybody and that includes our Taekwondo classes too.

When working in a group, it will help keep you motivated, meaning you’re less likely to skip workouts and stay on the right path.

Learn to defend yourself

The most obvious purpose, when it comes to Taekwondo, is learning the ability to defend yourself. Yes, it’s primarily a sport, however the skills you will learn can become helpful in everyday life including if you ever need to defend yourself.

Let’s face it – sometimes we can be faced with tough situations or not nice people. It’s not something we like to think about, but it’s true. Taekwondo helps give you a new resource if you ever need to use it.

We hope you never have to use it, but if you do – Taekwondo helps you have an advantage.



Taekwondo isn’t just about the physical aspect, it can help keep you mentally disciplined, too. We would be lying if we said Taekwondo was always easy to learn. Some moves require practice and patience to master.

Mastering the moves requires discipline – and only with discipline will you accomplish these goals.

You can then use this discipline in other areas of your life; whether it’s focusing on your career, or maybe helping your child stay disciplined at school.

This learning of goal setting and self-discipline will go a very long way in your daily life and will help you achieve your life goals with ease.
