Is it true that Taekwondo is good for health?
The answer to this is yes. Like any physical activity, having exercise in one’s life is good for the heart, muscles, bones, and to some degree spiritual and mental fitness.
Unlike other physical activity, Taekwondo as a martial arts also provides one with core values to strengthen one’s character. No other physical activity builds one’s core like Taekwondo.
When you practice Taekwondo, you exercise your mind, body, and spirit.
The mind is kept active through the knowledge one gains about martial arts and how one is taught to have “victory”–a code of conduct which reflects positive mental attitude.
The spirit, which is ones inner motivator, is strengthened through the reinforcement or teachings on core values–the six tenets of Taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit, and victory). When one has strong spirit, one is able to motivate himself or herself to achieve goals and objectives.
Last but not least, the body is regularly exercised through calisthenics, aerobic, strengthening, and stretching exercises. The exercises are done in such a way where all parts of the body work in an integrated fashion to give it natural strength.
No other fitness activity can deliver like Taekwondo!
