LEARN THE ART OF SELF-DEFENCE
New for 2020! Martial arts at the Hollandse Club: We are pleased to partner with Karate Nation and the Lions Taekwondo Academy.
Professional coaches will guide and mentor students safely through both disciplines. As well as being great for overall fitness, martial arts have been proven to boost energy and help students become more calm, focused and goal-oriented in their personal and professional lives.
WONDERING WHICH DISCIPLINE IS FOR YOU?
People often ask, “How are Taekwondo and Karate different?” Or, “Which is better?”
Both are excellent forms of martial arts training, each giving a great work out with a focus on self-defence, discipline and a high code of personal conduct.
So, how are they different?
The specific postures, stances, and movements differ significantly between Taekwondo and Karate.
Karate – originating in Japan - focuses on punching and blocking whilst training strength, power and solid stances. Karate frequently includes knee and elbow strikes, with some kicking techniques.
Taekwondo – originating in Korea - emphasizes kicking techniques, focusing around 70% on kicks with 30% on blocks, punches and open-handed strikes.
