To enrol in martial art may suggest violence and fighting, but when instilled properly Martial Arts can become the cement in the building blocks of life, cementing the structure, grounding it and keeping it all together; and no matter what quality the brick, the wall is only ever as strong as the cement that holds it together.

Discipline/Self-Control -  One of the main Tenets of Taekwondo.  In today’s fast paced world of see it and get it, children struggle to understand earning and restraint.  Taekwondo takes them on a journey where rewards are gained through hard work, endurance and self-discipline and therefore they trust and value the accolades they receive.

Fitness – We all know the benefits of working out and by enrolling your child in Martial arts you encourage active lifestyles.  At Future classes run for longer than any other school and nearly always train 350% longer than even adults at our competitor schools at every single lesson!!

Self-esteem – To build self-esteem the student needs to believe in themselves, at Future we grow this with every test they pass, every obstacle they overcome, every belt they earn and every tournament they win. They are developing all the time.

Socialization Skills – Students come to Future make friends within a very short time because they have a common interest.  When pushed to their limits they bind together to support and encourage each other.  Higher grade students know how tough it is and encourage the new students every step of the way building trust and confidence. They belong!

Goal setting – Taekwondo Martial Art is based around an accomplishment system. Each coloured belt signifies the wearer’s degree of skill. When the student strives toward each new belt, he is setting out to reach his goals.

Respect – Learning any martial art will require the student to demonstrate respect. This will translate into respect for authority, peers and teachers.  A classroom full of students with respect will always be the most advanced class.

Non-Violent Resolution – Taekwondo does not teach a student how to fight an opponent but in contrast teaches peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasizes the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.

Attention span and education – In order to master the skills of Taekwondo the student must master the skills of listening and reaction.  This supports education and learning over a broad spectrum but especially in the classroom.  Students are taught how to focus under strenuous conditions, which means focus under normal conditions becomes more manageable.

Teamwork  – Whether is enduring drills, grading or competing, the student is always part of a team. Working together to learn new things and reach goals is an important lesson to learn, and instruction in martial arts will help your child learn that lesson.
