Taekwon-Do Kids Development Program  (TKD Program)

" Honestly speaking, I cannot think of a better programme than the TKD Program to further the physical, cognitive, behavioural, social, and moral development of young children worldwide. It is that good. I highly recommend it with the companion Study Book "

The Taekwon-Do Kids Development Program (TKD Program) is the official children’s programme for the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). It is designed for children aged 3 to 7 years old.

It teaches basic Taekwon-Do Skills and Coordination Skills as well as Life Skills, Danger Awareness and Character Education. It is great for pre-school children as it teaches them discipline. The children are taught how to listen and to follow instructions.

The programme teaches foundational knowledge of Taekwon-Do and uses a unique blend of principles to provide the best opportunity for the student to develop in a way that will empower them for the rest of their life. The ethos of the program is to provide the student with a mind-set which will help them develop attitudes that promote a harmonious society.

The TKD Program uses a wide range of activities including; games, physical exercises, tasks, role playing, story telling, discussions, problem solving exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It uses a strategic reward system that gives positive encouragement to all students, including the less able, by rewarding them for their development.

Most of the games use a system which ensures that the games become a positive experience for the child which focuses on the developmental aspects of the game instead of the competitive aspect.
