Instructors train their students to the best of their ability. Some students come fit, while others have come 100 pounds overweight. Most come with limited flexibility. Adults start at any age. As a student, you are looked upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Your instructors will be there every step of the way. All that is expected is a willingness to try.

Here are some benefits you can expect from training in Taekwon-Do:

Fitness: The principles of Taekwon-Do techniques are based on the design of your body. For power you develop the larger, powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwon-Do, you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of your body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of a foot.

Self-Defense: When the speed and power developed through Taekwon-Do is used in a self-defense situation against the vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the results can be incredible. Taekwon-Do allows a woman to emphasize many of her natural physical strengths, such as power in the legs, while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow. And confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.

Self-Confidence: This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time. Through Taekwon-Do, as you accomplish new goals, your confidence level increases. Taekwon-Do instills a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.
