WHAT IS TAEKWONDO?
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, modern-day Olympic sport and effective self-defense system.
Taekwondo training and practice can improve not only physical conditioning but also helps the individual become more confident, controlled, disciplined, respectful and patient.
THE CHILD & TAEKWONDO
Taekwondo is a total learning activity. Lessons are tailored to your child's age. 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-defense.
SELF-DISCIPLINE AND SELF ESTEEM FOR YOUR CHILD
Taekwondo emphasizes moral development as well. Children learn respect for themselves and others, heightened concentration, and increased self-discipline and self-restraint.
The self-discipline that develops as a result of learning and practicing the techniques usually carries over into other areas of the child's life. School grades often improve as your child learns to focus on objectives and to work toward achievement. The self-discipline and self-respect which Taekwondo develops can provide your child with the skills and mindset necessary to resist peer pressure.
THE ADULT & TAEKWONDO
Taekwondo strengthens your body and improves your health through physical exercise and conditioning. Dynamic tension exercises will allow you to gain better muscle tone and more strength. A gradual building process of safe and easy stretching techniques will enhance flexibility, while breathing and concentration exercises lead to sharper reflexes and senses.
The discipline of Taekwondo leads to increase energy, better health and fitness, greater coordination, and higher self-esteem. These qualities are vital to a happier, longer life.
