TAEKWONDO…MORE THAN JUST AN OLYMPIC SPORT
Through Taekwondo Sparring Kids Gain Self-Confidence And A Greater Understanding Of Themselves
Is your kid shy and lacking in self-confidence?
Does your child know how to cope with failure and set-backs?
Through taekwondo sparring kids learn to face up to their weaknesses.
And turn them into strengths.
Does Your Kid Tend To Be Shy? Or Lack Self-Confidence?
Shy kids find it hard to cope with confrontation. Teasing in the school yard can ruin their day. And a threat from a bully can lead to melt-down.
Through taekwondo sparring kids learn to face up to confrontation.
They learn how to stand in a ring and face someone who is trying to attack them. (And believe us although tkd sparring is controlled it is still frightening and confronting.)
Good martial arts instructors build up childrens’ sparring skills slowly. So at first tkd kids face a couple of kicks in a drill.
And in time they build up to full sparring bouts lasting around 1-2 minutes.
And through their sparring training children learn not to panic.
Not to run away.
And not to turn their backs.
But to stand up tall and face their aggressor.
To think clearly under huge pressure.
And to hit back with in a measured way with self-control.
