Taekwondo is a well-respected martial arts style because it has an emphasis on moral conduct and provides a great workout. Naturally, Taekwondo is one of the first things that come to mind when parents are looking for a kids martial arts program, and they have the right idea. Martial arts provides children with the strength, confidence, and discipline to rise to life’s challenges.
Taekwondo provides great opportunities for improving your child’s health and developing their character, but its fighting techniques aren’t safe for self-defense or standing up to the school bully.
If you watch videos of competitive Taekwondo matches, athletes wear protective gear because the fighting techniques can cause major bodily harm. While Taekwondo uses a variety of impressive strikes and kicks, they aren’t safe for any child to use in a self-defense situation.
When it comes to teaching your child self-defense and raising them to be bullyproof, Brazilian jiu jitsu is the best martial arts for your child. BJJ is a grappling-focused martial art that is designed for all sizes, strengths, and abilities. The techniques are designed to control – not harm – your opponent.
