BENEFITS OF TAEKWONDO TRAINING
We have a lot of fun at the VTEAM Taekwondo but Instructors will not tolerate excessive talking or goofing around in the school. Improved behaviour in a Martial arts class often translates into improved behaviour at school. Improved behaviour at school often translates into improved grades. We require behaviour reports from the parents to make sure that the student is focused in the classroom and at home… Not just the dojang. We want to make sure that our students are working on their Martial Arts technique, improving their behaviour at home, as well as improving their grades at school.
Did you know that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 25 years? The first step to preventing childhood obesity is addressing the problem before it occurs. According to researchers, participating in Taekwondo lessons and martial arts in general will help address obesity in the onset. Taekwondo lessons will also help students understand the value of regular exercise — one the most useful lifetime habits.
If your child is considering playing other sports in school, then they’ll certainly enjoy the boost that Taekwondo for kids gives their athletic performance. Because Taekwondo is such an intense physical workout, it also improves stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength.
Taekwondo is a perfect application of the Zen concept “Be Here, Now!” This is one of the perfect reasons why you should get Taekwondo classes for kids.
Taking Taekwondo lessons will exhaust and push students to their limits. Once students are pushed to the limit, he/she uses 100% of his mental concentration to get results more efficiently. Mastering ‘focus’ is a great tool a child can use in improving his/her academic performance.
A recent study covered by the BBC found that the average child spends at least six hours out of every day in front of the screen, be it a smart phone, a tablet, a computer or a TV. And all that time is a risk and could help promote a sedentary lifestyle. In most cases, it can also influence your child’s ability to properly register emotions, process information and cognitive control. By letting them take on Taekwondo lessons for kids, you can help your child be active. Now they can improve on all the other aspects of self-development which is far more important than spending hours on screen.
The ability to defend yourself against a bully or stranger who intends to do you harm is an empowering feeling. This is one of the top reasons why parents are enthused in considering Taekwondo classes for kids. In today’s world where bullying is present in most schools and parks are not safe for children anymore, it is imperative that children be gifted with the techniques to defend themselves.
Self-control refers to the training that one gives one’s self to accomplish a certain task or to adopt a particular pattern of behaviour, even though one is unfocused or would rather be doing something else. For example, when your child has learned to listen to mom and dad, pay attention in class while listening to the teacher instead of talking to his friend next to him, he has demonstrated the ability to self-control… while making the good decision to do so. At VTEAM Taekwondo, as both parents and Instructors, we work on this skill set every single day.
At VTEAM Taekwondo, we know Focus plays a key role in the mindset of children who have limited attention spans at this stage in their life. Our Program will build their attention span… teaching your child to focus on the task at hand while improving their listening and reaction skills at the same time. As a result, your child will excel in physical activity, improve their ability to stay focused, and become an astute listener in the club, at home, and in school.
A child who is involved in martial arts is generally a child who is confident in himself/herself. Goals give purpose and direction. The sense of accomplishment a child feels by graduating to a new belt will help build his/her self-esteem and confidence. He/she will remember that all things are possible with persistent effort and when you exercise discipline, and Taekwondo classes are a perfect way to do this while having heaps of fun.
A common misconception of martial arts is that they promote violent behaviour but in fact it is quite the opposite. Martial arts teach children peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasise that physical altercations must be avoided.
Bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behaviour that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Kids who bully use their power – such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity – to control or harm others. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumours, attacking someone physically or verbally and purposely excluding someone from a group. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may experience serious, lasting problems.
Our anti-bullying approach is based on martial arts principles of redirection and straightforward assertiveness. Students are taught to manage situations without the use of violence, learning ways to assess threats, redirect verbal assaults and mobilise the audience, which is a critical factor in empowering the bully.
