In Self Defence we encourage the kids to follow the Martial art of Taekwondo.
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, similar to karate, with an emphasis on kicking techniques. One of the main benefits of taekwondo is improving a child’s strength and balance. Taekwondo teaches breathing and meditation techniques to assist in learning focus. As children dedicate themselves to a goal in taekwondo, they gain confidence as they observe their own progress and increasing mastery. This self-confidence can then be carried over into other areas of your child’s life. A study published in “Psychology in the Schools” in 2008 showed that martial arts participation reduced aggression in boys.
