The Benefits Of Martial Arts

If you are considering Taekwondo for a child this age, we invite you to come to our school and watch our Little Ninjas work out or have your child or children sign up for a trial period. There is always someone available during school hours who can answer your quesitons.

Martial Arts is an introspective art form that predominantly involves punching, kicking, and striking. Many parents choose to sign up their children for Martial Arts at Elite Taekwondo because it teaches confidence, perseverance, and self-defense skills.

Self Defense

Martial Arts at Elite Taekwondo in Placerville is also a great atmosphere to be in where your little one can succeed, gain self-esteem, and learn to never give up. We give them the skills needed to feel confident in their ability to defend theirself against any threat. We practice and practice to ensure that your muscles and body remember how to defend and counter any aggressor.


One of the main benefits of Martial Arts is improving your strength and balance. Martial Arts consists of punching and kicking, which helps practitioners strengthen both upper and lower body muscles. Martial Arts utilizes your core strength while working on your flexibility and power. Martial Arts can also help greatly improve coordination and endurance.


Taekwondo sets a child up for success. Not only does it instill healthy habits and keep your child active, but it helps them build meaningful relationships, develop discipline and respect for others, and feel good about themselves. Here at Elite Taekwondo, our youngest students are taught with the utmost kindness and patience. We want to make them love martial arts as much as we do!

Confidence Building/Good Example

Elite Taekwondo is dedicated to empowering you with the confidence and self-esteem needed to succeed in everyday life. Martial Arts can bring out the positive qualities that have always been a part of you, whether that is inner calm, positive mental attitude, patience, or self-discipline. Martial Arts will help you overcome fear, anger, and self-doubt, and leave you feeling confident in any situation.

Variety Workouts/Stress Relief

Martial Arts helps build mental toughness, teaches the value of hard work, and gives you the persistence you need in everyday life. Many members at Elite Taekwondo have said that Taekwondo is also a great stress relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their thoughts on striking the target in front of them. It is a workout where you have to have the endurance to execute all the various kicks and punches until the end of class. By engaging your brain during class, Martial Arts can help provide a completely different workout that you won’t find anywhere else.


In Martial Arts, students are taught how to help each other out in class. Whether that is to help hold boards to break or targets for you to kick to even being sparring partners. By creating a bond of trust and reciprocation, you and your sparring partner can then practice various striking combinations on each other and see how to make them work. Members at Elite Taekwondo have become close friends and help each other reach their goals.
