Taekwondo is a fantastic form of exercise and is a lot of fun, but it’s also the opportunity to learn a specific set of skills and disciplines that you won’t find on any old gym floor. If you have been inspired to try Taekwondo as a fun way to get in more exercise and to learn this brilliant martial art, you might be wondering how to prepare for your first session. Well, below are a few tips to help you out and make sure you’re getting the most out of the experience.
Invest in a Quality Gym Bag
If you’re attending your classes after work, you’ll need to bring a suitable change of clothes with you. This is where a quality gym bag will be useful, one that is big enough for you to keep your gym wear, water bottle, and to put your keys, wallet, etc., all in one place. Backpacks are a good style of gym bag as they are easy to carry, so why not treat yourself to one of these backpacks for sports people.
Your first Taekwondo session might not be too strenuous as it will be a chance for you to go over the basics, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still need energy. Just like any form of exercise, it’s sensible to fuel up on smart foods to give you an energy boost beforehand. Don’t eat straight before your class, but about an hour before so you’re not moving around on a full stomach. A healthy snack would work well, and then eat a nutritious meal afterwards to help your body recover. You must remember to bring water with you as well, as staying hydrated is key.
There are many things that could make you late for your class but try to be punctual. Your instructor has other students to teach, and it is better for everyone if they are not interrupted with you arriving late. You’ll also benefit from the full session if you arrive on time rather than having to try and catch up when you have missed the introduction. Aim to be at your class at least ten minutes before it starts, and if you are late for whatever reason, slip in quietly at the back to minimize disruption to the rest of the class.
Be Prepared for a Few Bruises
Martial arts can get rough at times, but it’s important to remember that you are in a safe space. You should be prepared to perhaps walk away from your first session with a few bumps and bruises, but provided you follow the safety guidance from your instructor, you shouldn’t come away with any serious injury. You will be going over the basics at first so you can build up your confidence and get used to sparing with your classmates during your sessions moving forward.
Taekwondo is a great sport and fantastic discipline, it’s easy to see why so many people are drawn to it. If you are about to attend your first session, use these tips to help you prepare for it.
To all Students, Instructors and friends of the GTUK around the world.

Thank you to all students and their families for supporting the GTUK Invitational Championships back in October, the first big event after restrictions were lifted.
Then a massive and well earned congratulations to those students that took both National and International Degree tests at the Blackbelt grading, such a great standard after a long break in training for many of you.
We look back and congratulate the Instructors and Students that have worked hard rebuilding the Association.
We still have some work to do in 2021, Good luck to all students taking tests in the next two weeks.
Finally, we eagerly look towards 2022, the continued growth, more events and seeing you all again.
