What are the benefits of Taekwondo for children today?
Taekwondo is a traditional Korean martial art and is useful for many reasons.
The potential benefits of taekwondo training for your kids are quite simply massive!
We've seen them first hand like physical fitness, weight control, increased concentration span, learning respect for others, and gaining huge increases in childrens self confidence and self esteem.
All this is achieved while the kids have fun!!!
It's great to see fit children who are a healthy weight.
Many of today's children are overweight because they are inactive and eat high energy foods.
And one of the huge benefits of taekwondo for children is that the kids enjoy the physical exercise. They exercise their whole body from top to toe and gain all round physical fitness.
Because they enjoy it so much they want to keep coming back for more!
TAEKWONDO FOR BOYS
The tough physical training allows them to let off steam.
They love kicking and punching under controlled conditions but they also learn about self-control.
Its important they understand how taekwondo has to stay in the Dojang.
They learn from great role models, fit, healthy, controlled taekwondo instructors and senior students.
TAEKWONDO FOR GIRLS
Being fit and healthy gives girls a positive body image.
Learning to face confrontation and fear develops self esteem and self confidence.
Children in taekwondo get physically and mentally stronger, which helps them in daily life.
Which brings us to another of the huge benefits of taekwondo for children. Taekwondo isn't just a physical training. It's a mental training.
Taekwondo kids learn complicated movements which help their concentration and memory. They learn to coordinate their bodies.
Children in taekwondo learn discipline. They learn to do as they are asked. And they gain the self-discipline to keep going when training is tough.
Another of the benefits of taekwondo for children is that there is great emphasis on respect and courtesy.
Taekwondo kids learn to respect their instructors. Respect each other. And in time they learn to respect themselves.
They learn to be polite to everyone. Even people they may not like. Which we think is a great skill for them to take with them into adult life.
Kids in taekwondo also learn the power of perseverance.
They learn that if something is difficult, but worth achieving then for them to achieve it they have to keep trying. They have to face failure and get over it. Pick themselves up, and try again and again and eventually they get it!
The sense of achievement and pride is fantastic to see on their smiling faces! It's a great boost to their self confidence and self esteem.
SELF CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM
Training in taekwondo boosts self confidence and self esteem.
We've seen children become more sure of themselves and gain the confidence to speak in front of the class or perform a difficult pattern in front of a grading panel.
They develop the confidence to teach and to nurture the younger kids. And in doing so they learn patience and kindness.
Over time we've seen taekwondo kids develop into calm, self-assured young people. Quietly confident in themselves with high self esteem.
And why's that good?
Well..... People with high self esteem are less likely to get involved in destructive behavior like drug taking or alcohol abuse.
And that quiet assured self confidence means that they are less likely to be bullied at school.
