• IDEAL FOR CHILDREN
Children do not make up 100% of the martial arts, but they do make up 100% of the future
We welcome children to the exciting world of martial arts. Learning a
martial art at Rayners Lane Taekwon-do Academy offers many benefits
above & beyond what you would expect or find at a Taekwon-do school
or in fact most martial arts clubs. Taekwon-do is a dynamic & visually
pleasing martial art. It is based on kinetic energy (the energy of movment)
& therefore does not rely on strength or brute force, making it ideal
for men, women & children of all shapes & sizes.
It is a proven fact that children who do martial arts
achieve better grades at school. Children are already fit, but training
in a martial arts helps them retain that fitness, thus keeping them healthy,
with activities on the decline in schools, maintaining your childs health
is an important issue. It gives children something to be proud of because
it is something they achieve themselves, thus increasing self-esteem.
Children learn discipline, they learn respect for themselves and their
seniors, an ever-losing facet of todays society.
Although we have seperate children and adult classes, we also understand that youngsters enjoy training with their parents. In fact, we have a number of parents who also train. With this in mind, both Monday and Saturday classes enable both children and their parents to train together, which they all (both parents and children) find great fun.
We also have many brothers and sisters that train together as well.
When the time is right youngesters progress into the normal class with exactly the same knowledge as older students of equal grade.
Private tuition is also available for children.
