Benefits of Taekwon-Do with the UKGT

Taekwon-Do strengthens your body and improves your health through physical exercise and conditioning. Isometric and dynamic tension exercises will allow you to gain better muscle tone and more strength. A gradual building process of safe and easy stretching techniques will enhance flexibility, while breathing and concentration exercises lead to sharper reflexes and senses.

The discipline of Taekwon-Do leads to increased energy, better health and fitness, greater coordination, and higher self-esteem. These qualities are vital for a happier, longer life.

Taekwon-Do for Kids

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **The UKGT is a family orientated organisation and Taekwon-Do is a great learning activity for children. Lessons are tailored to your child's age and skill level. Your child begins by practicing basic patterns and forms, kicking, blocking, striking, and hand techniques. These fundamental skills increase your child's physical coordination, flexibility, balance, and mental acumen. Taekwon-Do develops your child's athletic abilities and self-awareness, and improves their capabilities in self-defence.
