An exciting program that uses Taekwondo exercises to help reduce the risk of falls and improve the health and wellbeing of older Australians.
Fighting Falls is a national initiative that uses modified Taekwondo exercises to address a number of specific health issues in Australians over the age of 50, including:
Cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health.
Social and psychological wellbeing.
All exercises are modified to be suitable for each participant based on their level of fitness and ability, whilst being delivered by accredited coaches in a safe environment. Australian Taekwondo would like to acknowledge the support of Sport Australia for their support in making the Fighting program possible.
