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.

Child Training

Benefits of Taekwon-Do for Children

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:

  • Courtesy
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Self control
  • Indomitable spirit

Child appropriate self defence

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.

The Classes

Our children’s classes (Mini-Kids) are for those aged 5-9 year of age. From the age of 10 the children are encouraged to train in the  family class, twice a week.
