Leadership is the ability to influence and guide peers, friends, colleagues and members of our community - Leadership is one of the key ingredients to LIFE. I have 3 kids Cole, Olivia and Ella and a nephew named Aidan and two nieces Mikayla and Sophia who all train and practice Tae Kwon Do 2 to 4 times a week. I look at them and I say to myself, here is the next generation of Park children that will grow and one day lead the world. That can't be true enough, all our kids are the FUTURE and everything they learn at school each and everyday will determine the type of men and women that they will become. Let's all make sure we give our children the right tools and skills to gain the knowledge to bring us into a newer brighter and more AWESOME future!
When our children go to school they learn language arts, mathematics, history and other important knowledge that has been handed down from generation to generation but there is also things that need to be taught and learned that school does not provide in the academic classroom. Leadership is a characteristic we want all our children to have, Making decisions and standing up for yourself and what you believe in is always the right decision. Leadership is one of the foundation blocks in martial arts training.
Martial Arts has a variety of benefits, one of the most important is developing and teaching kids and students in becoming great LEADERS! Here are 4 ways Tae Kwon Do develops Leadership.
3 Ways Martial Arts Will Completely Stop Bullying
Posted: August 15, 2017
Bullying------ I have three kids Cole, Olivia and Ella and I think we can all agree that this is every parent's nightmare when we send our kids off to school every Fall. During the school year, children all over the country wake up scared to go to school because of bullies. This is an epidemic that affects millions of children all over the world. Parents and teachers are there to guide the students but bullying comes in many different forms and usually can cause mental and emotional scars that can ruin your child's entire school year. Bullying is a terrible thing and adults try their best to mediate aggressive behavior between students. Sometimes, however, parents and teachers do not recognize that bullying is occurring under their watch because it comes in many different shapes and forms. Bullying is when someone is picked on repeatedly by another individual or a group of individuals physically, mentally and emotionally. One of the best ways to get rid of bullying is to enroll your child in a martial arts class. Martial Arts is for everyone, whether your child is the bully or their getting bullied. Martial Arts lessons will instill the knowledge, skill and wisdom of self defense, all while teaching them true life lessons like respect, sportsmanship, responsibility, comraderie and honor.
1. Martial Arts teaches RESPECT
One of the greatest lesson that Tae Kwon Do teaches is RESPECT, its one of the foundation blocks for learning martial arts. Respect is shown to our seniors, and down the chain all the way to our peers and juniors. Before class even begins everyone is greeted with a bow, all classes are started and finished with a bow and even our Tae Kwon Do sparring matches begin with a bow. You could say we always START and Finish with RESPECT!
