a black belt will help your child become a leader
1. gain confidence
The further they develop, the more confidence they gain in themselves as a person. Confident kids can gain leadership skills.
2. gain discipline
Discipline is different than punishment. Discipline is necessary for a person to reach his/her goals. Self discipline allows a person to make better choices rather than be impulsive.
3. teach them to complete something
How many people do you know who do not complete things? They start off excited, only to give up half way through. Getting a black belt allows a child to overcome immediate self gratification, replace impulsivity with perseverance, and gain that rare reward of the integrity of sticking with what they say they are going to do. In short, it makes them achievers rather than quitters.
4. goal setting
Taekwondo is set up with a series of different belts so that children can pace themselves and make reasonable goals that they are able to achieve in a short amount of time. We have all heard the adage “inch by inch life is a cinch, yard by yard life is hard.” So it is with taekwondo. It must be seen in a way that is manageable rather than overwhelming.
5. strong bodies
The national obesity epidemic among children has many of the leading experts calling for more exercise among children. Training for a black belt will allow your child to gain a stronger overall body (muscles, bones and cardiovascular fitness). Children with strong bodies have less health problems, and improved mood.
6. intellectual development
There are numerous studies that will cite a positive correlation between exercise and intellectual development. Some even cite a decrease in Alzheimer’s disease with exercise. Gaining a black belt allows a child to expand his/her mental abilities through expanding techniques.
7. great friends
A great way to help meet like minded friends, inside and out of class.
8. learning begins with a black belt
After you have learned the basic skills necessary to be awarded the black belt, your learning begins with how to put it all together in a manner that is more effective and graceful.
