Taekwondo can help children improve balance, flexibility, motor coordination, endurance, and strength. Regular activity for children is an essential component of healthy physical development.  Equally important is the development of mental skills such as focus, concentration, self-awareness, and self-control. Further, consistent training helps kids cultivate important traits such as being respectful, valuing goal-setting, patience, self-improvement, friendship, integrity, confidence, positive attitude, dedication, courtesy, self-discipline, perseverance, character, and commitment.
