BENEFITS OF MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
Discipline – Students learn discipline from learning the curriculum of Tae Kwon Do as the customs of a martial art and the effort required to be successful.
Social Skills – Students at our school learn to work and communicate with both children and adults. Friendships are developed through cooperation and mutual concern for others. Instructors can also act as mentors for students of all ages.
Reflexes/Balance/Coordination – Many of the training activities center on improving each of these areas.
Focus – Following directions and participating in training drills helps students improve their ability to concentrate and complete a task.
Self Esteem – Setting and achieving goals help students develop a healthy view of themselves and their potential.
Courtesy – Students are required to address instructors as “Sir” or “Ma’am”, bow to both higher and lower belts to acknowledge their efforts, and to show kindness and concern for other students, family, teachers and friends.
We recognize that every child is unique. Goals are set based on the student's personal needs.
