MARTIAL ARTS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS!

Mental Benefits of Taekwondo: Confidence and Self-Respect

Benefits of Taekwondo

Let’s talk about something really important today–the mental benefits of Taekwondo. A lot of people see martial arts as a purely physical sport…. But there’s a lot of mental stamina and self-talk required to knock it out of the park. We help hundreds of people in our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu community become confident and proud of who they are through the power of martial arts and self-defence. Here’s how:

 

Confidence is One of the Huge Benefits of Taekwondo

benefits of TaekwondoThere’s probably an area of your life that you already feel confident in, like your performance at your job or your ability to be there for your spouse when they need you. You might already feel confident in your body and even crush it on the treadmill, but how confident do you feel in your ability to protect yourself? If it came down to it, would you know how to defend yourself against an attacker who knows martial arts? Would you know how to save the lives of the people you love? These can be answered by the benefits of Taekwondo.

 

Self-Respect: A Little-Known Benefit

benefits of taekwondoThese questions are not fun, but you know what’s less fun? Not knowing self-defence in an emergency and wishing you did! Learning how to protect yourself and the people you love is so important. It’s why we have the goal of teaching everyone in the Burwood area how to defend themselves against an attacker. It’s not just because it saves lives, either: Imagine how much more confident you would be if you were sure you could handle any physical situation that came your way. Knowing how to keep yourself safe would just be one more thing for you to feel confident about. It’s one of the huge mental benefits of Taekwondo.

 

How These Mental Benefits of Taekwondo Change Lives

benefits of taekwondoWe all know confidence is great to have, but why are the benefits of Taekwondo for kids important? Because once you learn to respect yourself and your body, you start to make better choices. When you decide to take martial arts classes, you may notice you feel more energized. You may want to start eating healthier and think, “I wouldn’t be respecting my body if I ate this, I want to feel amazing, so I’ll skip the chips.”

You may also find yourself wanting to bike instead of driving up the street, or finally making time to teach your kid how to play soccer. This just makes you even more confident because you’re doing what’s right for you, you have more energy to do things that benefit you, and you feel in alignment with your best self. The voice in your head saying, “Let’s eat better,” or, “Go for that run,” is finally being heard. Bonus–when you respect yourself, you start to treat others with more kindness and empathy because you see and respect them, too.

This makes others more confident because they feel your kindness, and then they pass that feeling on to others… and there’s a compound effect in the community. And then the world becomes a better place. It’s all because of the benefits of Taekwondo.

 

Confidence & Self Respect – Join Us to Learn More!

benefits of taekwondoPicture this: A new student will come in to start training, and within months, they’ll get a promotion. Or negotiate a higher salary. They may even get the courage to ask someone out on a date. Or speak up for themselves in an unhealthy friendship. These aren’t just crazy, random happenstances; they happen because the advantages of Taekwondo build confidence and self-respect. Period.

Again, when you respect yourself, you start to respect other aspects of your life as well. You begin realising that you deserve better treatment from others, professionally and personally, and you find the bravery within to stand up for what you want. Are you starting to see how the mental benefits of martial arts can change your life? Just these two benefits of Taekwondo–the mix of self-respect and confidence–can help you realize that other people’s judgments can only get to you if you let them. When you know how awesome you are because you leave your martial arts class feeling super accomplished, you’re not going to shy away from creating awesomeness in your own life. You take risks, embrace new opportunities, and do the things you never thought you could do. It’s awesome!

One last thing. In the classic mental health sense, the benefits of martial arts are endless. Staying active, engaging in social communities, and consistently accomplishing new goals each week are the basic building blocks of mental health that martial arts classes can provide. Your mood and health can improve tremendously right alongside your mindset!
