Frequently Asked Questions

Taekwondo is the best martial art to start with your family. This martial art is very accessible for younger people or those who are not very fit. However, taekwondo can still offer challenges for the members of your family who are fitter and older. The whole family, as long as everyone is at least 3 years old, can participate.

People tend to choose taekwondo because they think it looks interesting or they’ve heard good things from people who do taekwondo. People stick with our sport because they find that it is valuable for their physical, emotional, and mental health. It gives people confidence, discipline, a sense of accomplishment, and a competitive outlet.

Taekwondo, like many things, is all about what you put into it. Those who dedicate themselves to taekwondo can reap rewards that may surprise them, from improvements in perspective, mood, and disposition, to greater physical health and membership in a community. As a family, you can get closer when you do taekwondo together.

When you want to! Really, there is no best age to start martial arts. Starting children at a very young age gives them the opportunity to maximize their skills with more time spent in the dojo. Starting when you’re an adult, even a senior, is also beneficial and will not put you at too much of a disadvantage as long as you are healthy.

What do you and your family do together? Most families struggle to find activities that they can do together, especially an activity that is not in front of a screen. Joining a family martial art class can help you bond as a family and give you the opportunity to spend dedicated non-screen time together each week.

It depends on what you feel like you need to improve. Of course, if you want to improve your physical fitness, then taekwondo can help. It’s not just about movement and flexibility, but also strength, endurance, balance, and explosiveness. Taekwondo can also give you community, structure, and mental health benefits.

Taekwondo is good for your mental health. Those who need mindfulness, focus, or discipline will find that taekwondo helps them with all three. If you’re in need of confidence and energy instead, taekwondo can also help. Taekwondo can support the mental health of children as well as adults.

Karate and taekwondo are different, but we wouldn’t say that one is “harder” than the other. Both have challenging elements, but everyone can learn either one with enough practice. If you are looking for a challenge and competition, then you may want to choose taekwondo, as it offers a lot of competition.

It really depends on your family and what you need. There are many reasons that attending the family taekwondo class on Sundays might help, including improving your family bond, resolving conflict, getting fit together, and creating new family rituals that matter to everyone. However, only you can decide if it is worthwhile for your family.
