IELTS Speaking topic: A new skill you want to learn

Describe a new skill you want to learn.
You should say:
what it is
how would learn it
where you can learn it
and explain why you want to learn it.

I would like to learn the taekwondo which is a historical Korean martial arts and also is an excellent method of keeping fit and getting toned. I learned it a bit when I was a boy and I want to learn more about it in the future.

Actually there is a traditional taekwondo school located just near the sub district. The school is not very big or famous, but it’s very convenient. Besides, it also has several qualified and experienced teachers. Every time I pass by the school gate, I really would like to go inside, enrol the entry-level course and select my instructor. It would be very excited to wear the uniforms and the belt. I believe I would start learning it from the basics, like the front kick and roundhouse kick. It’s very cool.

I guess it is just a fashionable hobby because it will enable me to build strength, improve my balance, coordination and flexibility. Apart from its health benefits, it can also teach me how to be calm, respect for others, control my movements and self-defense. Furthermore, it will help reinforce the traditional values like honesty, courtesy, courage and indomitable spirit.
