FIT, FOCUSED & CONFIDENT - Benefits for Tae Kwon Do Students

Learning Martial Arts can help your child gain valuable listening skills & self discipline

 

 

Skills translate from Taekwondo to the classroom.

As a parent of a child with ADHD, you know the challenges all too well. Paying attention and staying organized are among the biggest. ADHD seems to impact everything––home, school, friendships. Then you wonder––what about the future? You’re not alone in your worries. ADHD affects 11% of children ages 4-17.

 

More and more, parents are finding that Taekwondo is a fun and effective way to help manage ADHD. Taekwondo helps students improve focus, build confidence, and gives them goals to work toward.

 

How Taekwondo helps children with ADHD.

Structured classes help establish routines. As your child learns proper Taekwondo technique through positive repetition lead by enthusiastic instructors, they will also learn to establish consistent habits. Martial arts techniques are learned at a gradual pace and directions are repeated often, so your child will have confidence in what they have learned before moving on. Skills like remembering to bow to open and close class, making eye contact, or raising a hand to ask a question all become routine here at our school. At home, brushing teeth and remembering to put homework into the backpack can become habits too!

 

Learning how to set and achieve goals. 

Taekwondo helps your child develop self-control, confidence and perseverance. At World Class Tae Kwon Do, your child will learn how good it feels to set and achieve goals. By mastering each new skill at his or her own pace, your child will learn to overcome frustration and gain the patience to stick with each task until it’s completed. This is one of the most valuable lessons we can teach to the young people in our program, and we have seen thousands of kids become the best version of themselves through martial arts. 

 

 

Following rules and gaining self-control.

Students receive a ton of praise and positive reinforcement for following instructions and maintaining good behavior. When a student does get distracted, our instructors will gently remind them to refocus. This will develop into a habit of getting and staying focused on directions and tasks. 

 

Working well with others.

Taekwondo classes teach children social skills that help them work well with others. Your child will learn to support their fellow students’ progress and cheer on their successes. The atmosphere of encouragement and camaraderie at World Class Tae Kwon Do can help your child make friends more easily and be a team player—invaluable skills that last a lifetime.

 

Resolving conflicts.

Contrary to what many think, practicing martial arts helps children learn how to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence. Bullying is a major issue that can cause many negative consequences. At World Class Tae Kwon Do, we teach three specific habits that are valuable in a bullying situation: maintaining a confident posture, using your voice as the first line of self defense, and having the confidence to walk away.
