Benefits of Tae Kwon Do

As well as the sporting and self-defence aspects to Taekwondo, the exercise one gets from martial arts training improves balance, flexibility, stamina, strength and posture.

Unlike many other forms of physical activity, martial arts also have a mental element which not only improves the mind’s focus but also helps provide confidence and self control.

Individuals of all ages take up Taekwondo, from 4-84 and those who take it up experience the following:

  • Improved muscle tone and appearance
  • Increased strength and stamina
  • Improved confidence
  • Improved flexibility
  • Improved agility and reflexes
  • Improved concentration and self-esteem
  • Improved leadership skills
  • Greater discipline
  • Reduced stress

However, it is important to point out that not all martial arts programs will produce the range of benefits discussed. It’s no wonder why Taekwondo has become one of the most popular activities for both adults and children, and why there are 20 million practitioners of the sport worldwide.
