We are at an exciting day and age where an increasing number of women participate in martial arts. What used to be a strictly male sport, people are now greatly accepting more possibilities.
Introducing girls to martial arts, like Choe’s HapKiDo, shows them what life has to offer. While girls may like completely different things than boys, they understand that it’s perfectly okay to be themselves and to learn martial arts too. When they see that boys and girls alike both rock at HapKiDo karate, they also pick up that it is important to do just as well in other areas of life.
In addition to developing physical strength and endurance, girls also learn the importance of self-respect, confidence, perseverance, and focus. And with a well-rounded martial arts program, girls can also have the opportunity for leadership roles that will allow them to lead classes, to guide students, and to give speeches.
With a little HapKiDo karate added to your child’s life, s/he will grow up to be a strong individual who always aim to succeed.
