Taekwondo is an excellent way for young children to develop balance, coordination, self-discipline, and respect. It is also a way for adults to improve self-control, self-confidence, flexibility, weight control, and physical fitness. Since Taekwondo is a year-round activity, it has become a preferred form of aerobic exercise. Taekwondo is an individualized activity and the progress at which you excel is dependent on the individual, not a team. Taekwondo has become popular because it is one of the few activities that all family members can participate in.
