Improved Report Cards: The curriculum is designed to teach children the importance of concentration. Improved concentration means that your child will learn more at school. Therefore, you can expect your child to receive better grades for both academics and attitude. Children who receive A’s and B’s on their report card receive a patch for their uniform indicating that they’re “Academic Achievers.”
Taekwondo Builds Healthy Kids: Taekwondo is a great work-out. Your child will breathe better, eat better and sleep better. Children who take Taekwondo are slimmer, make better decisions about food, and in general, learn to take better care of themselves.
Positive Attitudes: Kinds in Taekwondo learn to have a positive and respectful attitude. You won’t find yourself repeating yourself over and over, or arguing with your child like most parents do. Kids learn to be respectful to their paretns and teachers. You might even catch your child saying “Yes Ma’am” or ” Yes Sir”!
Self Confidence: It’s true, kids who take Taekwondo develop better self -confidence. They’re encouraged to take chances, to push themselves further than they thought possible. The success they experience through Taekwondo teaches them that they can be successful at anything if they truly believe they can, and are willing to work hard. Improved confidence leads to better grades, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports and extracurricular activities in general.
Self-Defense: Taekwondo teaches two forms of self-defense. One is physical- your child will improve his or her strength, flexibility, and overall health. Additionally, your child will learn to strike with tremendous power and effectiveness. Hopefully, your child will never be picked on or need to fight… but should the occasion arises, shouldn’t everyone know how to protect themselves? The second form of self-defense Taekwondo teaches is internal. Children learn to spot danger and avoid dangerous people, places and activities. Taekwondo can help your child avoid the need for physical confrontation. The second form of self-defense is perhaps the more valuable of the two.
My son Parker has taken Taekwondo since he was 5 years old. We enrolled him at K.H.. Kim’s in Glenview because he was not into any sports and we felt this would give him the physical activity he needed, but in the end he got so much more. Parker has gained respect, confidence and really takes pride in his belt.
