Tae kwon do Woman | Bring It On!

The tae kwon do woman: A martial artist in her own right.

Tae kwon do Woman

A tae kwon do woman often has her first exposure to the art when looking for martial arts lessons for her kids.

I can't tell you how many stay-at-home moms I have met through studying TKD. It's actually a great way to make new friends.

Sometimes, she is seeking a fun and different kids birthday party for her little one. A TKD birthday party is exciting with lots of movement and energy.

She might just be seeking a new way to get some exercise to improve her physical fitness.

Whatever the motivation, she does not start out seeking a passion for martial arts, but it doesn't take long to fall in love.

One Tae kwon do Woman

Let me offer some observations and advice for female martial artists at various stages of training.
Beginning the study of tae kwon do as a toddler is vastly different than at 38 (the age I began training).

I train with teenagers and young women that have lots of enthusiasm and often not enough discipline.

I train other tae kwon do moms and with many women who are grandmothers enjoying retirement!

"A woman who is convinced that she deserves to accept only the best challenges herself to give the best. Then she is living phenomenally."

Tae kwon do Girl

Close to half of all high school athletes are now girls.

The benefits of sports training for girls is extraordinary.

Sports has a positive effect on all aspects of a young woman's life.

A tae kwon do woman begins as a tae kwon do girl.

Women and girls under the age of 25 have a wonderful head start.

  • Women are usually more flexible than men and more so when they're young.

  • Girls and young women have not begun to doubt their physical abilities.

  • Tae kwon do boosts self esteem at a critical time in a young woman's life

  • Dad's are happy that their "little girl" can defend herself.

    Tae kwon do is a family activity.

    Women and girls under the age of 25 have a wonderful head start.

    Once we pass the age of 25 life often begins to change. We may get married and/or have children. Maybe we have finally finished college, begining that long dreamed of career.

    Whatever stage of life we are in, the age of 25 to 40 brings many changes for a tae kwon do woman.

    Women 25-40 have many demands on their time. A healthy lifestyle should always be part of life.

    There are many women who are eligible for those discount movie tickets. We call them senior citizens. But when they are also a tae kwon do woman, well, watch out!

    So much wisdom can be gained from training with the 40-60+ taekwondo woman.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not implying that if you're over 45 you are a senior citizen. Far from it. But I can tell you from personal experience, that once we get past 40, our bodies don't respond in the same way anymore.

    Women over 40 sometimes have special challenges in training, and sticking with it will make you younger!
