Taekwondo empowers children with values & self-discipline that can be carried throughout their lives.

  • build confidence and self-esteem
  • improves fitness & athletic capabilities
  • improves self-discipline 
  • self defense  & “bully” awareness 
  • meet & interact with new friends

Taekwondo emphasizes moral development as children learn respect for themselves and others, heightened concentration, and increased self-discipline and self-restraint. The self-discipline that develops as a result of learning and practicing Taekwondo, usually carries over into other areas of the child’s life. School grades often improve as your child learns to focus on objectives and to work toward achievement. The self-discipline and self-respect which Taekwondo develops can provide your child with the skills and mindset necessary to resist peer pressure, as well as learn bully awareness and prevention tactics.

Taekwondo strengthens your body and improves your health through physical exercise and conditioning. Isometric and dynamic tension exercises will allow you to gain better muscle tone and more strength. A gradual building process of safe and easy stretching techniques will enhance flexibility, while breathing and concentration exercises lead to sharper reflexes and senses. The discipline of Taekwondo leads to increase energy, better health and fitness, greater coordination, and higher self-esteem. These qualities are vital to a happier, longer life.
