Success is dependent on individual’s efforts. If they want to win, they can’t count on someone else. If they lose a match, athletes can’t blame anyone else for their failure. This teaches them to be responsible for their own action and decisions.
Kids are taught to respect their strength and techniques, thus they gain a disdain for bullying as well.
Martial arts will not teach child self-defense skills to directly deter bullies, but taking martial arts might prevent child from becoming a bully.
Taekwondo (Korean 태권도/跆拳道) is a Korean martial art, characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. In fact, World Taekwondo sparring competitions award additional points for strikes that incorporate spinning kicks, kicks to the head, or both. To facilitate fast, turning kicks, taekwondo generally adopts stances that are narrower and taller than the broader, wide stances used by martial arts such as karate. The tradeoff of decreased stability is believed to be worth the commensurate increase in agility, particularly in Kukkiwon-style taekwondo.
