Today’s generation of older adults is definitely not living their childhood’s version of grandparenthood! More active and on-the-go than any generation before them, today’s 40+ crowd isn’t settling for settling down, and martial arts is getting a lot of the extra attention.
The reasons people 40-plus are attracted to martial arts are often the same reasons anyone else is interested; physical fitness, self-defence, mental alertness, and to immerse themselves in the rich traditions and history of most of the popular forms.
What the potential new senior student must take into account that younger prospects take only for granted, are the physical limitations and health considerations that are part of the growing-older package. Fortunately, Blue Dragon Taekwon-Do schools are offering workout and self-defence programs geared for seniors’ specific set of needs. We don’t expect you to keep up with or kick as high as our teenagers, but as our Founder General Choi Hong Hi said repeatedly, Taekwon-Do is for EVERYONE!
Our 40+ classes are specifically geared to help you achieve your goals, whilst learning ITF Taekwon-Do at your own pace in our friendly sessions.
