If you live in Papakura, and you seek an activity for your children, International Taekwon-Do Papakura is ideal. Most forms of physical activity produce excellent benefits for children – both physical and behavioural. International Taekwon-Do goes one step further and explicitly reinforces the positive behaviours you teach at home.
The benefits to children include improved confidence, greater self-esteem, better discipline, improved concentration and improved manners and behaviour generally. Children often fare better at school and at home.
The culture of International Taekwon-Do reinforces universal family values, such as respect, trust and honesty. It is important to us that children respect their parents; usually parents find new reasons to respect their children, too.
These benefits accrue because International Taekwon-Do is more than just kicking and punching. We encourage our students to live by the Tenets of Taekwon-Do:
We teach basic self defence techniques to your children; more importantly we teach sound self defence strategies to you, the parents. As Accredited Protect Self Defence Trainers (Level 1) as well as qualified International Taekwon-Do black belts, we have a wealth of valuable information to share to help your children defend themselves, and help you protect them.
Classes are customised for two age groups of children – one for those aged 5-7 years, and one for those aged 8-10 years. From the age of 11 the children are encouraged to train in the family class, twice a week.
