    Great activity for kids and adults

    Tae kwon Do helps people to develop flexibility, strength and coordination in a fun, low-pressure way. Upwey Tae Kwon Do teachers are knowledgeable and patient. Well-worth the experience for kids and adults alike.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Besides the physical benefits of exercise, by training together often as a family, both children and adults learn that respect is a two-way street. This reinforces respect all round and boosts self confidence as the usual power hierarchy between adults and children is not relevant in our martial art.

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense

    08-02-2016 by Faith Nicholls

    This has been the best activity my son has ever been involved with. Excellent mentoring and teaching . My son developed great confidence in himself as well as learning new skills.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Self confidence in children, especially teenagers, will help them to resist negative peer pressure and thus make them safer. Regular training in a safe non-competitive environment will boost their confidence as they learn. This is compared to a competitive environment which disadvantages those who cannot keep up with others, often resulting in a lowering of self confidence.

    Self defence for kids - recognising danger

    We all want to ensure the safety of our children but keeping them safe can be a 24/7 job and there's only so much we can do as parents or carers.

The keyword here is to empower your child - you want to find a balance where they don't have to constantly feel as though they're worrying about any potential danger. One of the ways we can ease the load off ourselves is by teaching our c...

    How to raise brave kids - that understand FEAR

    When confronted by someone or an unusual event we are often surprised by our body's reaction, often interpreted as 'Fear'. At a physiological level our body is dumped with adrenalin which makes our muscles ready to fight or flee from any perceived attack or stressful situation, that is our 'fight' or 'flight' instinct. These two primordial responses are most obvious in children who will run away or lash out when stressed. But as we grow older our response is often overridden by our 'intelligent ...

    Self defence: A lesson in safer living

    Self Defence is much less about one's ability to fight and more about knowledge of one's self and environment. We are born with a natural instinct for survival and self-preservation but in our modern 'civilised' society much of this instinct has been conditioned out of us, particularly in women. The victim is often punished along with the perpetrator, especially as children in school when rules against ‘fighting' often punish the victim as well as the bully. We learn that standing up for oursel...
