Taekwondo benefits teen boys
It seems like teen boys are spending more time in front of screens and less time engaging in physical activity and socialization. Between the video games they play and the movies they watch, there’s a lot of interest in the martial arts. Those movies and games don’t always accurately depict martial arts, particularly the violent ones. What if they could put that interest to good use and get a lifetime of benefits? With Taekwondo, they can.
Real-world benefits start in Taekwondo
From school and home to the future, the benefits of Taekwondo will transfer into other areas of life.
Taekwondo takes immense concentration and mastering moves takes focus. Outside of Taekwondo, your teen will learn how to tune out distractions when he needs to be focused in other areas of life––such as on his schoolwork or chores.
Gain confidence and self-esteem
As students progress, they get belts to recognize their achievements. They enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes with hard work and achieving things that seemed less possible before. Physically, students get stronger. You’ll start to see confidence and self-esteem improve. Above all, a confident kid is more likely to resist peer pressure and be less vulnerable to bullying.
Gain leadership skills
Through performing in Taekwondo, your child will become more comfortable presenting and speaking in front of a group.
Make new friends
Students are supportive of one another and cheer on success. The atmosphere of encouragement and camaraderie at Master Chong’s can help your child make friends and be a team player—invaluable skills that last a lifetime.
Taekwondo is a disciplined art based on respect. Students learn the skills to defend themselves but also know that Taekwondo is not about violence. In fact, there are studies that have concluded that learning martial arts actually reduces violence in young people.
