Mental Benefits of Taekwondo: Confidence and Self-Respect

Mental Benefits of Taekwondo: Confidence and Self-Respect

Benefits of Taekwondo

The mental benefits of Taekwondo are endless, but two important ones you may not know about are confidence and self-respect. Most people see martial arts as a purely physical sport, but it requires quite a bit of mental stamina and self-talk. We help hundreds of people in our Tring Martial Arts Academy community build confidence and self-respect through the power of martial arts and self-defence. Here’s how:

 

Confidence is One of the Huge Benefits of Taekwondo

Benefits of TaekwondoChances are high that you already feel confident in one area of your life; your job, your role as a parent, or your studies, for example. You might already feel confident in your body and even work out regularly, but do you feel confident in your ability to protect yourself? If push came to shove (literally), would you know how to defend yourself against an attacker who knows martial arts? Would you know how to protect the people you love? The confidence to protect yourself is one of the benefits of Taekwondo.

 

Self-Respect: A Little-Known Benefit

Benefits of TaekwondoThese are scary questions, but they’re necessary, as fear can sometimes motivate you to act appropriately. There’s nothing worse than not knowing self-defence in an emergency and wishing you did! Learning self-defence to keep yourself and the people you love safe is so important. It’s why our mission is to teach everyone in Tring 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-defence would just be one more thing for you to hang your hat on. It’s one of the huge benefits of Taekwondo.

 

How These Mental Benefits of Taekwondo Change Lives

Benefits of TaekwondoWe all want to be confident people, so why are the advantages of Taekwondo important? Because once you learn to respect yourself and your body, you begin making better choices. Once you start taking martial arts classes, you may notice you feel more energised. 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 take a walk in the afternoon or finally making time for a hike with a friend. Then you become even more confident because you’re doing right by your body, you have more energy to do things you love, and you feel in alignment with your best self.

That little conscience in your head guiding your decisions is finally being heard. When you respect yourself, you start to treat others with more kindness and patience 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. Magic? We think so. And it’s all because of the benefits of Taekwondo.

 

Confidence & Self Respect – Join Us to Learn More!

Tring Tai Chi Seminar with Sifu DanThis happens all the time: A new student will come in to start training, and within months, they’ll be promoted at work. Or negotiate a better salary. They may even find the courage to ask someone on a date. Or speak their mind to a disrespectful colleague. These aren’t just crazy random happenstances; they happen because martial arts classes build confidence and self-respect. Plain and simple. When you respect yourself, you also start to treat yourself better. You recognise that you can push yourself to new limits in martial arts classes, and you gain bravery and confidence you never knew you had.

Do you see now how the mental benefits of Taekwondo can seriously change your life? Just these two benefits–the mix of self-respect and confidence–can help you realise that other people’s judgements and the value you place on them are worth less than how it feels to respect yourself. When you know you’re awesome because you’re kicking major butt in your adult martial arts classes, you’re not afraid to confidently create awesomeness in your own life.

You feel empowered to make bold decisions in your life, 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 provides serious benefits. Staying active, being a part of a community, and achieving new goals each week; these are pieces of the mental health checklist that the benefits of Taekwondo for kids check off. Your mood and health can improve tremendously right alongside your mindset.
