Reasons To Enroll and Keep Your child at Mid-California Tae Kwon Do

1. Spiritual Growth: The most critical reason for enrolling in martial arts is for spiritual growth.  Spiritual growth and spiritual maturity strengthen character development, enhance behavior, and develop proper attitudes of physical fitness and self defense.   All critical areas of growth are derived from the spiritual strength of our lives.  We teach young men that balance between personal power and meekness are the key to becoming the men we ought to become.  Further, developing power for ladies should be coupled with meekness and humility.  We believe that it is possible to be powerful and still exhibit meekness and humility.  It is a life changing combination.

2. Character Development: Personal discipline, self-control, patience, confidence, courage, fortitude, etc., are the inner qualities needed to understand how to live our lives properly, in public view or in private.  The Instructors at Mid-California Tae Kwon Do wish to reinforce what is already being taught at home, and seek to establish a pattern of godly character development in the students. 

Behavior: A good martial arts program can facilitate the growth of the child in critical areas of life, such as: improving attention span, respect for others, obedience to parents and other authority structures.  The instructors at Mid-California Tae Kwon Do work at building a proper and positive relationship with the students to better facilitate communication, a friendly but consistent environment to learn, and mutual respect.  The relationship built between student and the instructor can last a lifetime and have a huge positive impact on a child's life.

4. Physical Fitness:  When we are physically fit, we do feel better about ourselves.  Along with other important areas of growth we must work at being healthy and physically fit.

5. Self Defense:  Self-defense is an obvious reason to begin, and continue training in martial arts.  Self-defense classes should include self-defense applications, conflict resolution, personal accountability and avoiding conflict.
