Discipline The Mind...The Body Will Follow
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that promotes discipline in mind and body through vigorous mental and physical exercise.
Parents send their children to Taekwondo for many reasons:
- PHYSICAL FITNESS
But children love Taekwondo for one basic reason. ITS FUN!!!
Classes provide children with good, healthy exercise that promotes overall coordination, conditioning and strength. Plus, Taekwondo is a great way to use all the extra energy kinds have.
Taekwondo provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop inner strength as their bodies grow.
Children learn discipline, self-control, self-confidence, responsibility and concentration. Instruction at Gentle East focuses on improving each child's attention span, ability to follow directions and ability to learn in a group setting-- attributes that can positively affect lifelong academic and social performance.
Gentle East realizes that even within the same age group, children can have different skills, abilities, and needs. Our philosophy is to support and encourage the efforts and accomplishments of each child.
At Gentle East, children learn a YES I CAN attitude. Gentle East students are expected to exercise their minds as well as their bodies. All students are encouraged to strive for membership in the Academic Achievers Club. This club is open to students who pursue scholastic excellence either by maintaining good grades in school, or demonstrating significant improvement.
The discipline involved in Taekwondo, along with the incentive to make good grades, has many of our students working harder than ever to achieve.
