Great Reasons for Kids to Try Taekwondo
ability to focus and concentrate
- Taekwondo uses tremendous
amounts of focus to learn how to perform techniques, aim for targets
and retain balance.
in school - Along with improved
focus and concentration comes
improved performance. Students find it easier to pay attention and be
respectful in school.
confidence - Each student
progresses at their own rate.
Success is measured on how much they improve, not a standard bar. The
"I can do it!" attitude improves with each belt.
esteem - Earning stripes and
achieving each belt level gives
children a sense of pride and accomplishment that overflows into all
areas of their lives.
physical fitness - Students are
encouraged to attend two or
more times per week. Classes are packed with fun physical activities
that keep kids motivated and moving. Practice at home is also
awareness and control -
Taekwondo develops a strong sense of
control which is measured as students progress through the ranks and
begin sparring and advanced activity drills. Students who train in
martial arts develop a keen awareness of how long their arms and legs
are and how to properly control
for self and others - Students
learn from day one that a good
Black Belt Attitude involves keeping our hands and feet to ourselves
and treating others how we would like to be treated.
self-discipline - Students are
expected to answer yes sir/yes
ma'am to all commands and behave like Black Belts at all times.
Discipline is not punishment, it's learning right from wrong and how to
choose to do what is right.
responsible - Students are
responsible to remember to bring
all of their gear and equipment to class as well as complete their
monthly theme worksheet.
physically defend themselves as a last resort
- Karate Kids
Rule #1 is to always keep our hands and feet to ourselves, unless we're
in danger. Children learn the difference between being picked on, or
being in danger and what to do in each situation. No one is ever
allowed to hurt us physically or take us some place we know we aren't
supposed to go.
habit of Goal Setting - Goal
setting is so important in order
to get what you want in life. Learn how to set a S.M.A.R.T. goal to
make reaching your targets in life even easier.
for energy - Children have
loads of energy that need to be
channeled into positive activities. Taekwondo teaches children how to
use that energy to empower themselves, while using their good control
to keep extra energy in check.
character education program -
Character is all the positive
traits that make up a person. Taekwondo teaches focus, discipline,
respect, loyalty, perseverance, integrity, self esteem and more!
friends in a positive environment
- Kids classes are always
filled with friendly faces. Although Taekwondo is an individual sport,
there are also activities in class where students get to be partners or
even be on teams. Students are encouraged to learn how to work
independently as well as in a group.
self-control - Students learn to
have self-control physically
to work together with partners without getting hurt, but also mentally
too. The road to black belt isn't always easy and students are reminded
of positive ways to channel their frustration if their path becomes
handle pressure in every day life
- In class we learn that
it's okay if you don't get everything right on the first try and that
mistakes are necessary to learn. Children learn to apply this in other
parts of life as well as they progress through the rank
calmer in the face of conflict -
From bullying to arguments
with siblings, instructors emphasize using words rather than actions
whenever possible and the importance of thinking before we
fight in school - Black Belts
don't start fights. Karate Kid
Rule #1 is to keep our hands and feet to ourselves, even when some one
is bothering or bullying us. Students learn that to be a Black Belt,
you must find other ways to handle situations.
leadership skills - Our
Leadership Program teaches kids
public speaking skills as well as confidence and strong character.
Junior Leaders are encouraged to help out with lower ranking classes to
practice their leadership skills.
Belt in martial arts, and a Black Belt in life
- A Black Belt
isn't just something you wear, its something that you become. Black
Belts are patient, focused, goal driven and confident people who try to
