Q&A: Is there a good Tae Kwon Do school anywhere along Makati, Guadalupe, Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Cubao and Marikina?
Question by Dead Bored Person: Is there a good Tae Kwon Do school anywhere along Makati, Guadalupe, Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Cubao and Marikina?
I would like to learn Tae Kwon Do but I do not know where to start. Im in the Philippines and live in Marikina and work in Makati for a BPO company. My work usually puts me on the night shift and I need a Tae Kwon Do clinic that is nearby my work place or is along the route I travel from home to work, namely Makati, Guadalupe, Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Cubao and Marikina. I’m new to the sport (actually I dont have any sport =p) and would like to have someone or a group that could mentor me. I am eager to learn and currently doing common exercises (running, push-ups, etc.) to prepare myself for Tae Kwon Do training.
Thank you and I hope that I can be refered to a good intructor, clinic or school soon so I can begin my training.
Answer by John D
ho believe me running and push ups is about 5% of what you need your legs will wreck for the first few.
as for classes im not sure but just go to gyms/ school halls any sort of open area that is used for sports
and you are bound to find classes
also search google for local areas eg taekwondo Makati and browse around.
just 2 notes 1) Taekwondo is filled with fake dojos that will scam you for money, type in mcdojo (google) watch out for these
2) people say that it can’t be used for street defence at times it wouln’t be the best but it can be used just other styles seem more street wise
but it will keep you so fit its ridiculous.
your legs will hurt because running doesnt excercise the muscles that you will be using for Taekwondo
good luck with it
