How do children benefit?
*Enhance self-esteem by heightening your physical and mental powers.
*Build confidence by encouraging you to succeed and to take control of your life.
*Develop discipline by thoroughly training your body and mind in the tenets and techniques of Taekwondo.
*Teach self-defence by training you to recognize situations in which physical self-defence may be necessary, and teaching you how to control such situations to your advantage.
*Strengthen your mind and body through increased physical coordination and mental discipline.
Lessons are tailored to your child’s age and skill level. Your child begins by practicing basic patterns and forms, board breaking, kicking, blocking, striking, and punching. These fundamental skills increase your child’s physical coordination, flexibility, balance, and mental acumen.
Taekwondo develops your child’s athletic abilities and self-awareness, and improves the child’s capabilities in self-defence and self discipline. The self discipline that develops as a result of learning and practicing the techniques usually carries over into the other areas of a child’s life. Child tend to be more focused, self motivated and are able to work towards achievements.
Taekwondo emphasizes moral development as well. Children learn respect for themselves and others, higher concentration and increased self restraint.
Respect, trust and open communication are the foundations of strong families. Taekwondo training promotes values such as honesty, courtesy, loyalty, and cooperation. Each is an essential component in maintaining a good family structure.
