FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
It is commonly misunderstood that Taekwondo promote violence in children. On the contrary, children learning Taekwondo learn not to be violent. Children understand that their Taekwondo skills are not to be misused outside of class but to help them handle tough situations if necessary. Through the teaching of Taekwondo that emphasizes on courtesy, humility and respect, children develop self-control, confidence and increased self-esteem to resolve conflicts peacefully and reduce aggression.
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.
