Benefits: Taekwondo is a learning activity for your child. Every lesson is tailored to your child’s age and skill level. Children begin practicing basic Taekwondo patterns and forms, kicking, blocking, striking, and punching. These fundamental skills increase your child’s physical coordination, flexibility, balance, and mental strength.
Why: Taekwondo emphasizes moral development as well. Taekwondo teaches respect for themselves and others, heightened concentration, and increased self-discipline and self-restraint.
Self-discipline develops as a result of learning and practicing Taekwondo and those techniques tend to carry 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.
