Who Should Join?
Kids are required to do a lot of sitting, and TaeKwonDo helps relieve this pent up energy. TaeKwonDo is also an excellent way to learn non-violent conflict resolution and helps kids find focus and stillness. Through respectful technique correction and class activities, kids also learn that failure isn’t permanent unless you quit. By continuing to persevere, kids learn self-confidence and self respect that is well-earned, and marked by visual ranks as they progress through the belts! A martial artist is taught to see, feel, and listen — both internally and externally. Kids also learn socialization within a structured environment where others have similar goals. There is also quite a bit of teamwork once kids get into the upper belts, and over time these disciplines cross over into other areas of life.
Martial arts is an excellent fitness program for adults. It is a high-aerobic workout that uses every muscle group, improves stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength. TaeKwonDo is excellent for stress relief through kicking, punching and shouting. You will learn important self-defense skills, goal setting, positive encouragement, and respect, which is part of our daily practice. All of this increases self-confidence in all areas of your life. If you don’t have a current fitness program, getting more exercise has general benefits including better sleep & concentration, an improved emotional state, better heart health, improved self image, stronger immune system, greater strength and flexibility, and a healthier weight.
We have trained many seniors coming into martial arts for the first time; you don’t have to be running races to join us. Benefits for seniors learning TaeKwonDo are many, including: a sense of community, cardio-respiratory fitness, strengthened immune capacity, sharpened mental focus, a boost in confidence, increased flexibility, better balance, increased oxygen flow, improved body control, increased strength, and improved endurance. Since TaeKwonDo is a weight-bearing exercise, it also helps guard against osteoporosis. Our emphasis is on listening to your body and enjoying the workout.
