The Benefits Of Taekwondo
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 Prosser’s ATA Black Belt Academy because it involves more than just movement of the body, but also positive training of our spirit and mind.
Taekwondo at Prosser’s ATA in Rolla, Missouri is also a great atmosphere to be in where you can succeed, gain self-esteem, and learn to never give up. We give you the skills you need to feel confident in your ability to defend yourself against any threat. We practice and practice to ensure that your muscles and body remember how to defend and counter any aggressor.
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.
Obesity is a serious problem in the United States, so a brand new workout to your routine will greatly help. At Prosser’s, we know the importance of a healthy mind and body, so introducing yourself to martial arts is a great way to combat obesity and promote weight loss. 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.

Taekwondo will help you overcome fear, anger and self-doubt, and leave you feeling confident in any situation.
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 Prosser’s ATA Academy 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.
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 Prosser’s ATA have become close friends and help each other reach their goals.
