Children Learn Leadership and How To Handle Bullying With Taekwondo in Phoenix

December 19, 2011


Do Your Kids Kick and Punch Like Karate Kids Around The House?

Perhaps you have seen the positive press and exposure Taekwondo and Kids Martial Arts programs have been receiving. Maybe your son or daughter has expressed interest in doing a martial art. You don’t have to be Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee to do martial arts. In fact, you might be surprised at what you find for children at one Phoenix Martial Arts school.

Lots of children want to train in Tae Kwon-do because:

o They are being bullied
o They have low self-esteem/confidence
o They have no confidence
o They are lacking in co-ordination/motor skills
o They find it hard to make friends

Our Phoenix Karate Kids children’s program will teach your child core values such as discipline and respect. By starting at an early age, they will develop positive habits to last a lifetime. We believe in bringing out the best in your child and have designed our classes to be entertaining and informative.

With training in USA Martial Arts Phoenix Karate Kids Tae Kwon-do, the content of the classes and the way they are structured, your children will develop:-

o Self confidence, self control, self esteem and self discipline
o Respect for adults and for each other
o The value of setting goals and working towards them
o Non-violent techniques in conflict-resolution
o How to overcome a bully or gang situation
o The Tae Kwon-do training will channel their energy into their Tae Kwon-do skills
The way the instruction is given and broken down for the child, you will see a great improvement in a matter of weeks.
The training in Tae Kwon-do promotes individual and group activities which will develop,

(1) Communication skills, leadership life skills,

(2) Group interactions/activities.

Children who acquire self-confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Martial Arts training is arguably the best method of instilling confidence into children and at the same time emphasises the importance of respect and discipline. As a result of the fast and exciting nature of Martial Arts there are thousands of children participating throughout Arizona, the USA; and worldwide there are millions.

Children see Martial Arts training as the ultimate activity, in our classes everybody wins, it’s not just who’s the best gets to play.

Our system of training is based on inner development and self-expression; concentration, focus, goal setting, self-achievement are the topics of discussion. Motor skill development, co-ordination, flexibility and self-awareness are the basics to the physical training.

Children learn to reach their full potential through our confidence building martial arts program. Caring Instructors provide expert training in a fun and safe, although still disciplined environment, to produce positive results.

How To Do Taekwondo in Phoenix – Karate for Kids

Martial arts Karate for kids – Let your little one get his kicks
How does your child spend the rest of the day after getting back from school? Chances are that they prefer to stay indoors, slumped on the sofa with a bag of chips in one hand and the TV remote control in the other. It’s been proven that children these days spend more time playing with gadgets or watching television and less time engaging in some physical activity outdoors.

Testimonials
Gabriel really enjoys coming, his concentration and focus as well as his ability to pay attention and listen have improved amazingly. I find it is great for his confidence too.

Korean Martial Arts Trademark High Flying Kicks

Korean Martial Arts Trademark High Flying Kicks

TaeKwonDo TangSooDo HapKiDo KukSoolWon HwarangDo ChunKukDo TaekKyeon

Taekwondo Master John Nottingham Flying Side Kick Punch 1995

The flying side kick – punch photo above was taken by my student David Goron circa 1995 at a park in Mesa Arizona near my first retail storefront school called Academy of Asian Martial Arts. On the left is James Gann and on the right is David Bravo.

From Tang Soo Do, Hwarang Do, Kuk Sool Won, Hapkido, or the highly popularized Olympic Taekwondo, the Korean Martial Arts are well known for their high flying kicks.

Beginning A Martial Arts Journey
My journey in the martial arts started when I saw James Bond perform spy martial arts moves that seemed to have magical results – even on bigger men. It was refined, dignified, intelligent and quite impressive to the eyes of a little boy.

This was my first introduction to Japanese Jujitsu (traditional art of locks, throws, strikes and pins). Later I would see Bruce Lee performing his own Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, a composite American freestyle hybrid system rooted in Wing Chun, fencing and boxing (the beginnings of modern MMA). From the start, I loved the kicks.

Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do
While growing up my bigger brothers and I often wrestled (rough housing) with one another and Dad which provided me with a foundation without knowing it. But it was my first martial art that introduced me to Korean style martial arts kicking in an art called Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do (Soo Bahk Do). Today, some schools retain that branch name while many have simply gone under the banner of Taekwondo.

Advanced Black Belt Kicking
As I continued to study I had the privilege of practicing several branches of Hapkido, Hwarang Do, and several of the classical Kwans (Chung Do Kwan, Ji Do Kwan, Song Moo Kwan). In 1945 the Korean Martial Arts styles officially registered with the Korean government as various KWANS. Each has its similarities and yet beautiful differences that I came to appreciate and respect.

Is This Kicking Practical?
I observed that the kicking was not only spectacular, but it could be very practical. It made sense for smaller people because the legs give a reach advantage, are preconditioned, and generate as much as 3 or more times power than the arms.

It struck me as interesting that every-time I heard someone criticize high kicks or “fancy kicking”, it was a person who: A. Could not do it or B. Had yet to square off with a kicker who had functional kicking skill.

Kicking Criticism
Since I had the opportunity to have been booted in the head by so many skilled kickers, it seemed an arrogant and ignorant statement. Every technique has it’s strengths and weaknesses, so why was advanced kicking the target of so much criticism?

Practical Self Defense Application and Much More
Of course, self defense practical application is not the only measure and reason for practice of the art. Nor are the arts comprised only of kicking. Kicking is a fantastic way of building and maintaining flexibility, health, burning calories, expressing an aesthetically pleasing art, reducing stress and developing a respectable skill. Those are just some of the many benefits, but certainly not all. To my way of thinking, it is just one way to help develop the mind, body and spirit – and a fun one at that.

It sure beats the stair-master, starvation diets and the treadmill.
