Teens

Teenagers are smart and capable. All they need is an outlet for their frustrations – and an opportunity to learn how to be their best. The road to black belt starts here

Raising a teenager with persistence & patience

It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.

Studying Taekwondo helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.

Your teen will grow with every class!

Teenagers who study Taekwondo learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojang – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.

Learn the value of respecting themselves & others

Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.

In our Taekwondo school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.

Ultimately, teens who study Taekwondo learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.

Judgement is an essential skill in Taekwondo

Whether they’re in a Taekwondo class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.

Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.

They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.

Get your kid off the couch and into taekwondo

It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.

The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.

Taekwondo classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.

How to set (and achieve) goals

Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.

The study of Taekwondo requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.

Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.
