Learning self-defense is a great idea. Taking up Tae Kwon Do, however, may be one step better. The training gives you much more than just experience in the martial arts, it will also give you a way of life, as its name implies. It is a style of training that was originally designed to help stop fights and bring greater peace to the world.

Benefits of the Sport

As you train in this martial art, you will find that you will gain a lot of other benefits besides just self-defense. It is these side benefits that add a lot more value to the training, and many of them will be usable for the rest of your life.

One important benefit is that you will develop a strong self-discipline. It also increases your self-control. Practicing the various moves and techniques over and over will also give you a lot of stamina and greater physical strength.

Learning more and progressing in the sport will also give you better self-esteem. You will feel like you have more control in your life. This will give you more self-confidence as you rise in rank and are able to do much more.

Get in Shape

Taking regular classes will enable you to lose weight, get toned, and become more flexible. You will use every muscle in training, and possibly even some you did not know you had. As you practice more, you will also gain better health and find that you have less stress in life. The classes also provide a way to improve your cardiovascular system.

Train for Sport or Competition

Not everyone who takes Tae Kwon Do is in it for competition. Some want to take it simply to get themselves in shape and develop stamina and strength. Others are interested in the competition aspect. Still, self-defense really only has value if there is some contact and practice. This is why you will have some sparring in class. It will improve your speed and reflexes, which would be necessary in a real self-defense situation.

The Instructors

Each of the instructors has been well-trained. They also are certified and offer instruction in a way that helps ensure safety. They watch and work with each student to ensure that the correct methods are being used.

The Students

Anyone can enroll in the classes. There really is no age limit, but you must be able to follow instructions and be flexible enough to carry them out. A lot of movement will be required in your lower limbs, so there must also be good balance. Of course, each of these areas will improve as you continue in the classes.
