Taekwondo is a very systematic martial art from Korea that involves head-height kicks, spinning, jumping, and fast kicking techniques. Taekwondo is recognized as one of the oldest forms of martial arts and one of the more popular forms to learn. Many people enjoy Taekwondo at House of Dragons because it involves more than just movement of the body, but also positive training of our spirit and mind.
Variety Workouts/Stress Relief
Taekwondo helps build mental toughness, teaches the value of hard work, and gives you the persistence you need in everyday life. Many members at House of Dragons have said that Taekwondo is also a great stress-relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their thoughts into kicking the target in front of them. It is a workout where you have to have endurance to execute all the various kicks and punches until the end of class. By engaging your brain during class, Taekwondo can help provide a completely different workout that you won’t find anywhere else.

Confidence Building/Good Example
House of Dragons Taekwondo is dedicated to empowering you with the confidence and self-esteem needed to succeed in everyday life. Taekwondo can bring out the positive qualities that have always been a part of you, whether that is inner calm, positive mental attitude, patience, or self-discipline. Taekwondo will help you overcome fear, anger and self-doubt, and leave you feeling confident in any situation.
One of the main benefits of Taekwondo is improving your strength and balance. Taekwondo depends on kicking, which helps practitioners learn to balance their weight on one leg leaving the other one free to strike. This martial art utilizes your core strength and leg strength while working on your flexibility and agility. Taekwondo can also help greatly improve coordination and endurance.

In Taekwondo, you’ll burn hundreds of calories in each class, develop lean muscles, and boost flexibility. Taekwondo is a high-energy training class that is great for weight loss.
In Taekwondo, students are taught how to help each other out in class. Whether that be to help hold boards to break or targets for you to kick even to being sparring partners. By creating a bond of trust and reciprocation, you and your sparring partner can then practice various kicking combinations on each other and see how to make things work. Members at House of Dragons have become close friends and help each other reach their goals.
