Improving your fitness is necessary in all sports, not just Taekwondo. But what most people do not realize is that Taekwondo is a Sprint Sport, not an endurance sport. Instead of running for hours and hours, you need to concentrate on your sprint speed. Running 100m, 200m and 400m sprints not only make you fitter, they also make your kicking faster. Once you become good at sprinting these distances, your fitness will improve, your bodyfat will drop even more and your kicking speed will also increase. All good things for a Taekwondo athlete.

Now this might seem a bit obvious for Taekwondo athletes, but many do not realize the importance that stretching has for recuperation. When you stretch, you not only get the blood into your muscles to flush away all the waste products of your training, but it also brings in nutrients and protein to help it recuperate even quicker. Tight muscles take longer to recover from training. By stretching them you improve the blood flow to them, making it easier to get good stuff in, and bad stuff out.
