Building Confidence one kick at a time.

Redmond Karate provides training to improve fitness and the capacity for self-defense. Taekwondo is not just a physical activity.  Taekwondo "is the martial art that trains people physically and mentally." In addition to physical fitness, Taekwondo classes promote discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy, perseverance and loyalty.  Redmond Karate specializes in teaching students age 7 and up. When students join they will not only be improving their fitness and learning to defend themselves, they will be embarking on a path to improve many important aspects of their lives. And the truly wonderful thing is they get to have fun while doing it! 

Here are some benefits you can expect from training in Taekwondo:


Fitness - The principles of Taekwondo techniques are based on the design of the human body.  For power the body develops the larger, powerful muscles of the torso.  The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs.  As students progress in Taekwondo, they learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of their body's strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of a foot.


Self-defense - When the speed and power developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the vulnerable parts of an attacker's body, the results can be incredible.  Taekwondo allows a woman to emphasize many of her natural physical strengths, such as power in the legs, while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent.  Knowing they can defend themselves, the student's confidence will grow.  And confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.

  

Self-confidence - This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time.  Through Taekwondo, as students accomplish new goals, their confidence level increases.  Taekwondo instils a sense of discipline and self confidence that can carry over to all aspects of life.  For children facing the ever increasing threat of being bullied; Redmond Karate helps them gain that self confidence to know that they are not threatened and can help their fellow students as well.
