Taekwondo is a Korean martial art developed during the 1940s by martial arts artists who combined certain key elements from karate and Chinese martial arts blended with traditional Korean martial arts traditions. This sport was popularized since its introduction to the Olympic Games in 1988 as a demonstration event (and later, it became an official medal event in 2000).
It is accepted and recognized in many large sporting events such as the Commonwealth Games. Today, this sport is practiced in those who want to develop their speed and agility. As you can tell, this ancient art is deeply rooted in a Asian culture but has been popularized in North America. Let your child be immersed in this rich culture by taking a class with us!
As we mentioned above, taekwondo was practiced by those who wanted to develop their speed and agility. As this sport combines kicking and low stances, your child will also be able to improve their sense of balance. Did you know that taekwondo ranks are separated by colour belts to indicate ‘juniors’ and ‘seniors’? Using this ranking system can be very beneficial in encouraging your child to be in healthy competition with themselves.
As they progress, they will see the improvement in themselves and develop a sense of pride in what they’ve learned. Another benefit to practicing taekwondo is that it is a form of self defense, one that your child will learn is not to be used when it is not appropriate (no need to worry!). Combat fitness is one of the most fun things to do and with all the benefits mentioned above, why not try it!
