Benefits of Tae Kwon Do
Not only is Tae Kwon Do a superior art of self defense, it instills a remarkable mental control and confidence to its practitioners. By learning to control the body, the Tae Kwon Do student learns greater control of thoughts and actions in everyday life.
Many think that Tae Kwon Do consists of breaking bricks and boards, but this is an entirely mistaken concept. The breaking of bricks and boards is merely to show the power and speed that the human body is capable of through Tae Kwon Do training. Tae Kwon Do is a superior aerobic exercise and utilizes every single muscle of the body. It is a natural weight-regulator, either taking pounds off or putting them on as needed.
Tae Kwon Do gives the student the skills to cope with dangerous or uncomfortable situations through greater control of his emotions. It allows him to cultivate relationships with others and society as a whole. His attitude becomes more generous toward those who are physically disadvantaged.
