Taekwondo has been recognized as one of the most effective methods to cultivate desirable values and attitudes in adolescents through the internalization of social norms, beliefs, values, attitudes, and cognitive experiences.
In general, physical activities affect human social life in various ways, and inherent values directly impact on psychological reactions and behaviours. As the value of participating in physical activities through sports helps the student’s psychological adaptation and improves social support, we can see that it plays a critical role in healthy adaptation to school life. In this respect, physical activity through taekwondo training is considered very important for school education.
Below are some of our videos and pictures so far, showing how excited the students have been with this physical activity;
