Tae Kwon Do - Health Benefits
Tae Kwon Do offers an intensive and varied workout, and students must train within their capabilities and age. There is a fitness benefit for all ages. My practice keeps my muscles and cardio-vascular fitness at a reasonable level for my age, burns calories and makes me feel good. Fit younger students will benefit from increasing their present fitness through the patternwork and sparring practice too. Unfit children will develop a regular exercise and martial arts regime that will help them lose weight.
There are many health benefits including:
It enables the student to learn a level of focus, and concentration with defensive techniques.
A high level of stamina, cardio-vascular fitness and endurance to strengthen the immune system can be achieved. This is important for a martial artist.
It has been proven that students with asthma can improve their condition through Tae Kwon Do.
The overall training programme and syllabus can help to improve the body’s range of movement.
Less injuries are encountered in the “dojang” than on a squash court or at a football match.
The stretching programme prevents ageing and helps muscular or joint problems which arise from sport.
Develops good posture and balance, that otherwise diminishes with the ageing process.
Through the development of chi (our internal energy) the body can heal itself. This is also fundamentally important in developing proficient technique.
Develop strong wrists for self-defence.
As a confidence booster.
In developing the spiritual side of the art, the student will become more positive and focused on goals – but also develop a self awareness, which will promote well being that can alleviate stress.
All these benefits will only occur if the student commits and trains for a realistic timeframe, years rather than months.
