Team sports are extremely popular worldwide because of their dynamic play. But few other teams of sports are as popular as football and hockey. The common source of 'football' is clearly referred to as football and I use the world's football simply because the whole world refers to football, just like football, except for the United States. Some people called football for royal sport because they are simply understandable, great fun and people know wherever they go.
The popularity of hockey is great for many nations and is likely to be popular worldwide if it is easier to find ice in the hotter regions of the planet. All joking, hockey is a serious sports team that both players and fans like to have an exciting style, elaborate tactics and great skills to be a good hockey player.
I worked as a Taekwondo instructor for many football and hockey players. The reason why such professional players are involved in martial arts and especially in the taekwondo is that they are helping their own sports performance. Taekwondo (TKD) is a famous type of martial arts that is dominated by fast and explosive kicking techniques. That's why taekwondo training will help you in footwork, speed and balance for both football and hockey players.
The most important thing a player can get with TKD training is flexibility and prevent injuries from knee and foot injuries. Legs and knees are indispensable for both football and hockey. They both sport agility and often cause terrible injuries to athletes. Unfortunately, it is common for football players and hockey players to have casualties during the game, which sometimes prevents them from taking long time, training and money
Not all taekwondo styles are equal; In my personal opinion, a school that focuses on the sparring Olympic style is the best choice for footballers because training focuses on the use of legs, hip and full middle.
The best thing for Taekwondo martial arts is to find a good taekwondo school and talk to a tutor.
As different players have different needs, ask the instructor with two basic questions:
1 How does taekwondo training help?
2 What kind of taekwondo training do you give?
Do not hesitate to contact me for the good taekwondo schools and comments. Markku Parviainen
