Most people take up taekwondo lessons to gain physical strength and learn self-defense. However as time goes on, they realize that the adult taekwondo classes teach them more than the physical gain. Who knew that mastering the way of the feet and hands can help you learn a bit more about yourself and change how you view life?

Here are some life lessons you might encounter while going through your adult taekwondo classes:

Be Courteous

One important thing that they will teach you is to bow down before anyone. This act is done not only by students, but also by the seniors/teachers. You might wonder why this is practiced before getting down into any action. There’s one word to explain this: Respect.

By teaching you to bow down before anyone, regardless their rank and skills, it also teaches you to humble down. You can bring this in real life situations where everyone also deserves respect.

Bowing down also happens before an opponent. It may seem ridiculous to show respect with someone you disagree with. However, this is where your values will get tested. Can you still show respect and humbleness despite disagreements?

Continue to Persevere

You cannot master the arts in a day, in a week, or in months. It is a continuous process that is sure to have difficulties along the way. This can help you build the attitude of working hard for something you truly want. Sweat and tears are going to be shed in order to achieve a better version of you.

It is just like when facing the “real world”. You will face a lot of adversity along the way; it’s never going to as smooth as you hoped it would be. But if you stay strong and rooted to your spirit and principles, you will harvest the sweetest fruits you have sowed.

You Learn Something New Everyday

Learning is an unending process. This is especially true for adult taekwondo classes. No matter what belt color you already gained, you will still find ways to learn new skills and improve the ones you already have.

Always seek to learn more about the arts, and never close your doors for new learning opportunities.

Self-control

It was once said that “Great power comes with great responsibility.” Once you have gained enough strength for yourself, you have to understand that self-control is much more important than that.

The adult taekwondo classes will often teach you that discipline is above anything else. This can also apply in your daily lives, where a lot of things can push your buttons. It will be up to you on how you would respond to such situations.
