Why Parents Often Prefer Taekwondo for Their Children’s Martial Art and Self Defense Training?

February 16, 2011


Why Do So Many Parents Make Taekwondo Their Choice of Martial Art for Children?

o Is it for the self defense?
o Is it for Children’s self-esteem?
o Is it for the life skills of respect and discipline?
o It may be one or all of these things because parents are discovering the power of Taekwondo for raising great kids!

Taekwondo is by far the worlds most popular martial art for children, especially in the USA. It is Korea’s national sport, an official Olympic Sport as well as a cultural tradition of Asia with lessons of wisdom for daily life.

Taekwondo = Happy, Healthy, Confident Children

In addition to the many health and fitness benefits, many parents prefer Taekwondo because of its track record for keeping kids interested (and higher success rate for producing Black Belts.) This is due to its more rapidly advancing belt rank system. Taekwondo is typically one of the faster arts to earn a Black Belt due to its streamlined curriculum and emphasis on attitude, character and respect. This proven goal setting success system really helps keep children with shorter attention spans motivated and feeling rewarded and successful. This means that parents don’t have to struggle so much to get them to go to Taekwondo class.

Tenets of Taekwondo
Modesty, Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit

These Taekwondo philosophy life skills go a long way in helping children succeed in school, other sports, developing the discipline do learn musical instruments and being accepted into colleges, universities and earning scholarships.

WEB SPECIAL

In most Taekwondo schools (Dojang/CheYuKwan), attitude is far more important than the kicks and punches. The advanced training begins at Black Belt – once the student has demonstrated that they are serious about being disciplined, dedicated and prepared for the responsibility that comes with such powerful self defense skills.

Couple this reputation along with the health benefits of building strong, flexible bodies as well as having a positive outlet for energy and you have a solid argument for Taekwondo over soccer, football and other sports that often leave children sitting on the bench.

These are just a few of the reasons that more and more parents are choosing to give their children a head start in school and life by enrolling them in authentic traditional Taekwondo schools.

Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

October 29, 2010

Awarded BEST OF PHOENIX 2010


Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

How Phoenix and Scottsdale Children Are Getting The Edge In School and Life Through Martial Arts

A unique martial arts school in Phoenix Arizona is changing the way martial arts is taught and Phoenix parents are taking notice.

“We have a unique traditional heritage at USA Martial Arts that stems from a unique Korean Grand Master named Hwang Kee. He founded a system called Moo Duk Kwan or “Institute of Martial Virtue”. The emphasis on the system is to develop virtuous individuals and what Grand Master called “warrior scholars”. It is considered of paramount importance to develop the mind as well as the body so academics and character education are encouraged at USA Martial Arts. I believe that is why we get so much respect in the community and have so many scholarship recipients.”

Children’s Martial Arts at USA Martial Arts Phoenix

The children’s martial arts program at USA Martial Arts is perfect for your child! We have specially designed programs for children ages 5 and up. Children’s classes are separated by age and experience level in order to create an ideal learning environment for your child.

Positive Learning Environment

Our children’s classes are taught by caring professional martial arts instructors who are dedicated to making a positive difference in your child’s life through martial arts training. Each action packed class is filled with exciting drills and activities that will teach your child valuable life skills such as confidence, discipline, goal setting, and perseverance while learning martial arts.

Character First

We like to think of ourselves as a Personal Development Center that uses martial arts training to help our students achieve their full potential in life. Our goal is to use martial arts training to help our students develop essential life skills such as discipline, self-control, respect, integrity, perseverance, and goal setting skills in order to equip them for success in life.

Self Defense

The practical self-defense training that your child will receive is invaluable! Every child (and adult for that matter) should have the CONFIDENCE and KNOWLEDGE to defend themselves from verbal and physical assault. Self defense is a SKILL that anyone can learn with training and practice. While it is unlikely that a person will ever have to physically defend themselves, I would much rather be prepared than leave it up to chance. We spends thousands each year on various forms of insurance, shouldn’t we invest in our children’s safety?

Martial Arts

In addition practical self-defense training your child will also learn a unique blend of modern and traditional martial arts including artistic martial arts (forms and traditional skills) and sport martial arts (sparring and kickboxing skills). As your child progresses in their training their level of fitness will increase. In particular, most students see an increase in flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and cardiovascular fitness. Our curriculum is designed to challenge your child and encourage them to reach to new heights as they progress towards earning their Black Belt.

Phoenix Black Belts Help Stalled Motorist

October 23, 2010

Leading by example with Black Belt courtesy, members of USA Martial Arts Phoenix interrupt their Black Belt test to help a stalled motorist at Greenway and Tatum

Wear Your Belts In Your Heart, Not Just Around Your Waist

This is a common mantra I issue to my students. At the conclusion of nearly every belt rank promotion students hear me remind them to wear their belts in their heart – not just around their waists. Note the Black Belt testers wearing a white belt – a symbolic gesture demonstrating a new beginning and the importance of being modest and earning one’s rank daily.

Leading By Example
My goal is to remind them the importance of leading by example and being positive role models to others. From random acts of courtesy, kindness and compassion, more is expected of USA Martial Arts students than other sports or activities. That’s because we teach martial arts as a way of life.

Might for Right -Grand Master Jhoon Rhee

Phoenix Do Gooders
On Wednesday, we were running over to a local park as part of our week-long Black Belt test when we spotted a stalled motorist holding up traffic. Before I could even get the words out of my mouth, several of the Black Belts (Instructors) were ready to jump out there and lend a hand. They helped push the car to safety (once they got the guy to take his foot off the brake).

No Excuses – No Quit
After pushing the car, they completed the 2 mile run to the park only to then begin a grueling Black Belt test that required them to do push ups, sit ups, kicks and another 2-3 mile run. It was a proud display of perseverance and indomitable spirit.

Service Above Self
Our students are each required to perform a community service to earn Black Belt as well. It gives them a sense of responsibility and connection to community – to serve a cause greater than themselves. It’s powerful and they will always remember it. It’s also a reminder that Martial Arts is more than just kicks and punches and that the philosophical lessons are integral to the martial Way.

The Choice To Do Good
It makes me proud to work with such good hearted people. Sure, they could have just kept running by the stalled motorist, but they didn’t. What an awesome job I have leading and teaching the martial arts here in Phoenix. It was good to see the children at the test get to witness their martial arts older brothers jump out there and lend a helping hand. I hope it makes a lasting impression.

What We Teach

USA Martial Arts Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Phoenix Arizona USA
Located at Tatum & Greenway in the Albertson’s Shopping Center

USA Martial Arts has been coaching people of all ages, who are in the process of learning and practicing the martial arts as a tool for learning. These people also practice the art of being more complete, proactive, and empowered human beings.
You see, USA Martial Arts stands for something far beyond the kick, the punch, and the throw.

We consider ourselves an integral part of the village that helps parents instill valuable character traits, beliefs, and habits in their children, such as: self-discipline, the ability to stay calm under pressure, the appreciation of teachers, parents and other mentors, and the value of proper diet, exercise and education in a happy and fulfilling life.

For thousands of adults and young adults, we have been – and continue to be – a place to refuel, recharge, and remember the value of keeping one’s body fit, to keep the mind focused and the spirit strong.

We teach a brand of self defense that transcends our physical “art” and includes – the self defense skills of kindness, empathy, community, and compassion.

You are cordially invited to visit and or be a part of this school; that is if you are looking for something that is fun and extraordinarily engaging, interesting and life enhancing.
