Benefits of Taekwondo for Elementary and School Children

Taekwondo training is good for kids’ physical, mental, and emotional health. In fact, this study by Bangor University showed that martial arts students had an improved attention span, greater alertness, and more cognitive control than participants who did not train in martial arts. Conversely, children who reported more than two hours a day of screen time got lower scores on thinking and language tests.

Because Taekwondo is an individual sport, each student advances at his or her own pace. At the same time, kids enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of practicing in a group setting. Enrolling kids in a martial arts program is a great way to get them moving and having fun.
