At Phil's Tae Kwon-Do Schools of Excellence, your child will learn:
Our children's program will teach your child core values such as discipline and respect. By starting at an early age, they will develop positive habits to last a lifetime. We believe in bringing out the best in your child and have designed our classes to be entertaining and informative.
Self Defence – Children’s self defence takes many forms. Tae Kwon Do teaches children to think instead of panic in potentially serious situations as well as how to react to threats from other children.
Better Grades – Being a Tae Kwon Do child means being a better student. All children in the Tae Kwon Do for children programme learn skills, such as following directions, paying attention in class, and participate in class activities that help them to become better students.
Every Child Wins – In Tae Kwon Do every child can be a winner instead of a bench sitter because Tae Kwon-Do allows children to reach for their own potential rather than directly competing against other children.
Co-ordination – Tae Kwon-Do challenges the entire body, developing coordination, balance, agility and poise…qualities often neglected in many team sports available to children in the age group.
FUN – Tae Kwon-Do lessons are a dynamic and challenging approach to the martial arts for children who are athletic, energetic, awkward, or shy, cold, nice, or maybe a little wild once in a while.
As a result of the fast and exciting nature of Martial Arts there are thousands of children participating throughout the UK. And worldwide there are millions.
Self Confidence – It doesn’t come naturally for many children, but rather is developed over a period of time. As a child accomplishes new goals, his or her confidence level increases. Children become more self confident in Tae Kwon Do because they progress individually at their own pace and are not judged against others. Children who acquire self-confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Martial Arts training is arguably the best method of instilling confidence into children and at the same time emphasises the importance of respect and discipline.
