My name is Zoltan and I’m a black belt Taekwondo practitioner from Wirral & Chester Taekwondo Academy in Bromborough, Merseyside.
I’ve just come back from the U.S., where I attended a workshop and became a Rock Steady Boxing trainer. This is a fun, but rigorous, non-contact, boxing style exercise programme developed specifically for people with Parkinson’s disease.
I will be holding classes at the Wirral & Chester TKD Academy with the assistance of other TKD instructors. I hope our initiative will grow and we’ll be able to help as many individuals with PD as possible.
We know that regular exercise can help keep PD sufferers’ heart and lungs healthy and improve their strength, balance, posture and flexibility. Most of the exercises during a Rock Steady Boxing class target Parkinson’s symptoms as well, which makes it appropriate for those with mild as well as progressing symptoms.
Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, balance, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents.
AT ROCK STEADY THE OPPONENT IS PARKINSON’S DISEASE!!
