Research has proven that children who participate in sporting activities as children are far more likely to continue with exercise throughout their adult life.
Taekwon-Do is considered by many experts to be a “life leveller”. Regular training encourages a physical and mental natural balance. It evens out attitudes, emotions, and actions.
If a child is short-tempered, Taekwon-Do training with emphasis on the tenets of Taekwon-Do can encourage increased tolerance.
If a child is aggressive, structured training will promote increased calmness. If a child is meek, Taekwon-Do training will increase his/her assertiveness.
If a child is anti-social, the Taekwon-Do training programme will encourage them to become more friendly, through social interaction and training based on teamwork and co-operation.
These developments will occur gradually, but parents often find that children become more focused with increased levels of concentration due to the continual setting and achieving of goals, which is a key part of Taekwon-Do training.
Taekwon-Do has no age limits and is a very good sporting activity for children. Taekwon-Do for children is specifically tailored to support a child’s physical and social development.
The focus is on helping children build themselves physically, and on instilling character, self-esteem, effort, concentration, sincerity, respect, self-control, and etiquette.
It is a fun, safe system of self-improvement and personal development that is highly recommended by parents, physicians, and educators.
