Taekwondo training can be a great way to boost a child’s confidence while helping them develop essential motor skills, flexibility and coordination.  Kids who study Taekwondo learn self-control, self-respect and focus.  Classes at Black Tiger Martial Arts are taught with the five tenets or principles of Taekwondo in mind:  Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit.  Your child will not only improve their physical health they will also make friends while learning important life skills.

Life Lessons Developed Through Martial Arts

Classes at Black Tiger end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way.

Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:

  • Avoiding conflicts
  • Dealing with bullies
  • Mental self defense
  • Proper respect for adults
  • Stranger awareness
  • Respect for self and others
  • Saying no to drugs and peer pressure

These valuable life lessons help our students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.
