What are the benefits of Taekwondo for Self-defense?
While Taekwondo will certainly address a student’s need for self-defense skills, it is only a fraction of the benefits derived from studying traditional martial arts. Self-defense is part of every class and is focused on personal protection skills. Students will learn not only the physical skills needed to protect themselves, but other areas of protection skills are addressed as well. Verbal skills and awareness drills which are designed to diffuse potential confrontations are introduced. We promote avoiding potential attacks via non physical skills as a first line of defense.
