Instructions for Taekwondo Stretching Techniques

Here are Taekwondo stretching exercises that you can use to improve your flexibility and hopefully reduce potential injuries (i.e. a strained hamstring) that might occur during your Taekwondo class. You should stretch for at least 10 minutes before Taekwondo. You should also stretch after Taekwondo when your body is warmed up & limber in order to maximize your flexibility. Remember do not bounce when you stretch, do each Taekwondo stretch slowly and do not try to stretch beyond your body's limit (i.e. stop if a stretch hurts). In addition, you should always see a doctor before starting any strenuous exercise program!
