Introducing your children to taekwondo sets goals for them and helps them to learn the skills to achieve these goals. They will also develop the strength and self-discipline to overcome setbacks along the way, how to get up and try again if they fall. Most importantly, they are going to learn how to treat others with respect. All of these skills will be useful in school, social situations and throughout life. While it is true that there is no single martial art that covers every aspect of every discipline, taekwondo with its focus on striking a balance between mind, spirit and body is a well-rounded martial arts technique.
