Mental Benefits of Taekwondo – Confidence and Self-Respect

Benefits of Taekwondo in Centerton

Did you know that there are mental benefits of taekwondo aside from feeling amazing after a workout? Most people see martial arts as a purely physical sport…. But there’s a lot of mental stamina and self-talk required to really knock it out of the park. We help hundreds of people in our Martial Arts Advantage community become confident and proud of who they are through the power of martial arts and self-defense. Here’s how:

Confidence is a Huge Advantage of Taekwondo

There’s probably an area of your life that you already feel confident in, like how you handle tough situations at work or your ability to be a supportive friend.

You might already feel confident in your body and even crush it on the treadmill. But do you feel confident in your ability to protect yourself? If push really came to shove (literally), would you know how to defend yourself against an attacker? Would you know how to save the lives of the people you love?

Self-Respect: A Little-Known Benefit

These questions are not fun, but you know what’s less fun- not knowing self-defense in an emergency and wishing you did! Learning how to protect yourself and the people you love is so important. It’s why we want to teach everyone in the Centerton community how to defend themselves against an attacker.

It’s not just because it saves lives, either: imagine how much more confident you could be if you were positive that you could handle any physical situation that came your way. That knowledge of self-defense would just be one more thing for you to hang your hat on. It’s a huge mental benefit of martial arts.

How These Mental Benefits of Taekwondo Change Lives

So confidence is important, yes – but why is self-respect important? It’s 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 start to want to eat healthier and think, “My body doesn’t feel so great when I eat pizza- maybe I’ll choose a salad tonight instead.”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. Also, and this is huge – when you respect yourself, you start to treat others with more kindness and humility because you see and respect them, too. This makes others more confident because they feel understood, 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 this little old sport we call martial arts.

This happens all the time – a new student will come in to start training, and within months, they’ll get promoted at work. Or negotiate a better salary. They may even get the courage to ask someone out on a date. Or speak up for themselves in an unhealthy friendship. These are not coincidences – they happen because martial arts classes build confidence and self-respect. Plain and simple. Again, when you respect yourself, you also start to treat yourself better.

You begin realizing that you deserve better treatment from others, professionally and personally, and you find the bravery within to stand up for what you want. Do you see now how the mental benefits of taekwondo for kids can really change your life? Just these two benefits- 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’re kicking major butt in your martial arts classes, you’re not afraid to confidently create awesomeness in your own life. You feel empowered to take risks, embark on exciting new adventures, and do the things you never thought you could do. It’s awesome! Okay, one more thing. In terms of textbook mental health, martial arts provide serious benefits. Staying active, being a part of a community, 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.
