Benefits of Taekwondo

How Taekwondo and Exercise improves kids health

Weight Control

Overweight children are at increased risk for many health problems and are more likely to be targeted for getting bullied, teased, and left out in groups and games.

In order to increase and build up confidence and self-worth, US Taekwondo Complex will provide the necessary teachings and mindset that will aid overweight students to think positively, while enjoying each and every class we have to offer to reap the benefits of Taekwondo!

Here is a list of what Taekwondo teachings can reduce and ultimately diminish:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Hyper-Lipidemia (High Lipids)
  • High Cholestrol
  • Diabetes
  • Growth Hormones Problems
  • Respiratory (Breathing) Problems
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Poor Self-Esteem

A.D.D. / A.D.H.D.

Children with A.D.D. and/or A.D.H.D. typically have trouble retaining their focus on different materials not because they do not comprehend materials, but because these students are distracted much easier than others without A.D.D. / A.D.H.D.

US Taekwondo Complex offers classes without any discrimination based on learning capabilities and skills. Our Taekwondo students are trained on “how” to focus and “why” it is important to understand materials being taught, not because they have to. Instead, we channel the students’ desire and motivation to have them choosing to stay focused without being distracted!

Our Masters use various strategies to train students to:

  • Stay Focused During Lessons
  • Not Interrupt
  • Block Distractions (Distractions due to Sight / Inner Mind)
  • Not Move and Remain Still
  • Listen to Each Directions
  • Make a Personal Decision to want to Learn
  • Stay on Task and Move on when Task is Completed

Mental Health Benefits and Skills for Life

Even children will go through tough life circumstances, such as stress, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem and some students do not get the proper support to aid them through their difficulties because their parents might be unaware of these issues or mom and dad has tried everything, and yet nothing seems to be working. Many children also struggle understanding certain skills that will help each individuals succeed.
