Taekwondo is a top notch form of exercise for anyone. Regardless of your age, your gender, or where your initial fitness level is, you can try and benefit from Taekwondo training. Rather than focus on one area, Taekwondo will help you develop a deeper focus, confidence, and mental health and along with the mental benefits you will see benefits in your physical appearance as well like: building lean muscle, losing weight, increasing your flexibility, and improving your coordination.
For those that aren’t hardcore fitness freaks, it can be all too easy to get bored and burn out on a repetitive exercise routine like happens in lifting weight, treadmills, and elliptical machines, and eventually ending up falling back into an unhealthy lifestyle. Training in the Taekwondo style of martial arts is anything but one-dimensional, with a progressive variety of challenges that will keep you coming back to improve yourself. You can work on basic stances and strikes, try to perfect your execution in kata and forms, and improving your sparring skills.
Another benefit of Taekwondo is that everyone in the family can do it. Even small children can begin learning the basics of Taekwondo as early as three. Is this too early to worry about fitness training? Not at all! Taekwondo can help show children that exercise and health are fun, and make it more likely that they’ll grow up disciplined, focused, and with healthy habits.
Training with your spouse, partner, and/or children is also a great way to share support, celebrate each others’ successes, and strengthen the family bond. Training alongside your children is a huge boost in confidence for them, and in pride for you as you see them grow and improve. And they can help encourage you as well!
To see if Taekwondo feels right for you, consider visiting the Baltimore Martial Arts Academy and try a fee introductory class. Setting yourself, and perhaps your family, on the road to a healthy, happy life can be as simple as that!

“We have been members of the Baltimore Martial Arts Academy (BMAA) for almost 3 years now. When my oldest son was 5, he watched Kung Fu Panda and decided to give martial arts a try. He fell in love with the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) classes for kids at BMAA. He’s now 8 and working on his black belt! We pay the monthly rate so the whole family can take unlimited classes at BMAA. Between BJJ, Judo, Tae Kwon Do and kettlebell classes, our family is at BMAA almost every day of the week.
Sensei Gary is very good with the kids. He really tries to make the classes fun. Danyelle is also a fantastic instructor. Working out with kettlebells is extremely challenging. She is good at motivating her class and never loses her sense of humor.”

My name is Aysar Odeh. I enrolled my son after noticing that he was having problems with some kids in his school. He immediately loved it and would throw a fit if we forgot to take him to class. He made a lot of friends and he wakes up faster for school these days. Gary talks to the kids about when to use their skills and when not to use it. He talks to them about bullies and rewards them for being good at home. The classes also have a few games that keep the kids looking forward to the next class.
The center has a position and friendly atmosphere. After a change in our schedule that prevented us from making our regular classes, we were welcomed into trying Judo and Tae Kwon-do. Both instructors were also great and my son decided on Tae Kwon-do. The center has moved into a bigger location recently and I wouldn’t be surprised if it needed to expand again. I highly recommend this to any one.
