BENEFITS OF TAE KWON DO
FOR CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS
FOCUS AND CONCENTRATION
Due to the nature of Tae Kwon Do training, our students are compelled to listen actively and watch their instructors closely so that they can learn the skills needed to progress through the program. As a result of these mental muscles being regularly flexed, children will get a boost in their ability to focus.
Increased strength, paired with the knowledge of how to properly punch and kick are invaluable tools children can utilize to protect themselves should the need arise. Additionally, being required to actively listen and pay attention during our classes builds environmental awareness, making your child capable of observing what is going on around them at all times.
Studies have shown time and time again the importance of movement for healthy child development. Being active reduces stress, boosts mental health, burns extra energy, improves cardiovascular health, and builds strong muscles and bones. It also increases balance and coordination, aiding in the prevention of common childhood injuries.
Learning Tae Kwon Do requires dedication, perseverance, and self discipline. Our students learn that regularly showing up to class is required to advance, practice outside the dojang is exceedingly helpful, and that facing challenges with calm determination is always the best way forward. All of these lessons build a strong sense of self discipline in our students.
As children progress from skill to skill and belt to belt, they get a grasp on how great it feels to independently overcome challenges. As they grow stronger, they realize just how much they are capable of. Finding power in their strength and voice equates to a huge boost in self confidence, self pride, and autonomy.
We are dedicated to teaching our students that it is better to resolve conflict peacefully and that Tae Kwon Do is not to be used as a weapon for bullying. When interpersonal challenges arise, we encourage children to work together to find a suitable solution. Our students are always welcome to talk to one of our instructors if they need advice or guidance in regards to conflicts they aren't sure how to solve.
