Taekwondo helps built self discipline by the ability to control one's emotions, impulses, desires and behavior. It is being able to resist the desire for instant gratification in favor of gaining the long-term satisfaction and fulfillment from achieving higher and more meaningful goals .
CONFIDENCE & INTEGRITY
Taekwondo programs are structured, so there are no “losers.” Taekwondo curriculums are designed so that no one is “left behind.” Esteem needs to stem from confidence in real abilities. When your child takes Tae Kwon Do they build self-confidence the right way. According to this, honesty, honor, and self-discipline are important to self-confidence. All of these things are crucial to a Martial Artist. Tae Kwon Do teaches children to honor their word, in all circumstances. They are taught to be respectful and trustworthy. Knowing that they are the sort of person others trust, it builds their self-esteem. Progress in rank involves proven character traits as well as physical power.
Taekwondo training gives you a fit, healthy body that feels good and looks good. This helps you feel good about yourself. And it's not an act. You genuinely have a deep inner confidence and happiness. You have high self esteem. And it shows! Taekwondo doesn't just improve your body. You constantly test your mind in martial arts as you learn complicated moves . And it's tough, very tough!
Martial arts is a great way to lose weight. For example, according to the Mayo Clinic, a person can burns 730 calories per hour at Taekwondo. Therefore, to lose one pound of fat per week, you will need to take roughly 5 Taekwondo classes per week. Or to lose ten pounds, you need to participate in 5 Taekwondo classes per week for 2.5 months or take 50 Taekwondo classes without changing your eating habits (such as eating more because you are hungry from all of the calories that you are burning off). A Taekwondo class is fun and importantly a "quicker" way to burn off calories than many other activities.
ANTI - BULLYING
In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Education released the first federal uniform definition of bullying for research and surveillance.1 The core elements of the definition include: unwanted aggressive behavior; observed or perceived power imbalance; and repetition of behaviors or high likelihood of repetition. There are many different modes and types of bullying.
Bullying prevention is a growing research field that has made great strides in answering important questions. We now know much more about how complex bullying is, and how it affects youth at the time they experience it and even as adults.
Teaching students to prevent and address bullying can help sustain bullying prevention efforts over time.
Self-defense training offers more than just developing the skill that your child could use in case they are put into a situation where they have to defend themselves. There are many other benefits your child could enjoy during training. The foremost benefit of self-defense training is that it helps improve the overall health and wellness of your child. Physical activities during training encourage movement of the entire body which in turns helps avoid obesity which is common among young children. It also helps improve their stamina to endure other strenuous physical activities they may encounter at home or at school. Also, these activities can help develop flexibility and coordination of the body and mind.
