The Benefits of TaeKwonDo Extend Far Beyond Just Physical Fitness
Tae Kwon Do isn’t simply about kicking and punching…
Tae Kwon Do teaches so much more than just the physical fitness everyone first considers. The key to Tae Kwon Do is physical fitness, self-defense and character development.
It is beneficial for the development of mental health for students of all ages.
Tae Kwon Do instills the importance of building oneself up - working not just on the blocking and kicking techniques taught, but working to build themselves up mentally and emotionally as well.
Students who participate in our program are actively working on the five basic tenets of Tae Kwon Do. Courtesy, Integrity, Respect, Self-Control, and demonstrating an Indomitable Spirit are key aspects in this martial art. Not only do our students focus on the five basic tenets, they work diligently on their cooperation, responsibility, perseverance, and much more.
Taking Tae Kwon Do classes will benefit students on and off the mats in regards to building up these key character traits. Students will find it to be second nature to respond to everyone they meet with respectful titles, “sir” and “ma’am”. You will also find Tae Kwon Do students can be much more considerate and understanding of the goals and struggles of others, and are driven to assist them along their journey.
Students at Han’s White Tiger are constantly working on building their confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills throughout the entirety of our program. Growth and change will begin almost immediately after a student takes their first step onto the mats and will only continue to prosper as they continue working through our program.
Tae Kwon Do IS a great way to stay fit and develop physical abilities.
While Tae Kwon Do is about more than just physical fitness, there are so many physical benefits that can be gained through martial arts training. Our program teaches you how to harness your physical strength, stamina and flexibility while also improving your coordination and balance.
Our program’s curriculum consists of stretching and cardiovascular exercises to maintain or lose weight. In addition, the punching and kicking techniques will help to build and tone muscles. Many of the exercises performed are intended to increase students’ stamina and endurance, providing them with simple yet safe exercises that are easy to perform yet still requires 110% of their energy and focus.
Anyone, at any level, can do Tae Kwon Do and gain the physical benefits it has to offer. Many students have watched themselves grow and pass limitations they never thought they could – stretching farther and with more ease, able to perform exercises longer and with more power than ever before – all from trying their best while setting and achieving their goals along the way.
Tae Kwon Do is a great stress reliever and outlet.
One of the biggest overall benefits of practicing Tae Kwon Do is combining both the physical benefits and the psychological benefits and utilizing them as a stress reliever or emotional outlet. By keeping yourself physically fit and mentally sharp in an environment that is supportive, encouraging, and family based you will find many of your stresses slip away on the mat.
Students are encouraged to be loud, proud, and confident during all aspects of their training. By doing so it is easy for students who may feel frustrated, overwhelmed, or limited by life events to channel those feelings into a loud yell and a powerful kick. Pushing oneself physically while mentally focusing on developing the tenets if Tae Kwon Do leads to a path of better self-understand, self-worth, and self-respect.
