Before & after School
Increase Self Confidence
Increase Self Confidence – Through developing the skills in the art of Taekwondo, and through consistent regular practice, students gain increased self-confidence and self-assurance. This self-confidence translates into all aspects of a students’ life leading to better overall health and quality of life.
Physical activity 30 minutes a day, 2 to 3 days/week has proven health effects including decreased likelihood of stroke, cardiovascular disease, increase in metabolism which in turn reduces weight, and more energy. This leads to an increase in productivity and creativity.
Improve Concentration & Focus
With gradual daily martial arts training, students work towards becoming more proficient in martial arts techniques. Through regular training, this increases focus and concentration by learning simple concepts that are introduced at a gradual pace. Instructors build on these skills by adding more complex concepts and reinforcing and practicing existing skills over time.
Respect for Self & Others
The essence of martial arts is respect for oneself and respect for others. Taekwondo practitioners are taught character development following the 5 Tenants of Taekwondo, one of which is respect. Participants are also taught to observe and practice martial arts etiquette which includes respect for Self, Parent as well as Masters and teachers. This then carries over into daily life and into the community.
Martial Arts is the shaping of both physical and mental discipline. Regular practice and concentration sharpens the mind and body, increasing student’s emotional and physical ability which in turn helps individuals take on greater challenges towards being more successful in life.
The ability to defend oneself is one of the best ways to strengthen an individual’s self confidence. Students learn the foundations around defending themselves and exercise self-control, as well as Bully Proofing.
Students participate in daily warming up, stretching and building strength around muscles with regular practice. Increased flexibility leads to a healthy body and reduces the risk of injuries.
