“During Japanese colonial rule, traditional Korean martial arts, like almost all aspects of Korean identity, had been banned. When the occupation ended in 1945, Korean martial arts schools began to open... Jhoon Rhee was finally able to achieve his longtime goal of studying martial arts. In 1947, when Rhee was 15, he enrolled in Chung Do Kwan, Grandmaster Won Kook Lee’s Tae Kwon Do academy in Seoul.” Learn more at http://www.jhoonrhee.com/bio.html

[08/03/18]   Several studies point to the effectiveness of traditional martial arts in reducing aggression. Zivin et al (2001) for example paired 60 middle-school boys on problematic behavior profiles in a treatment group and a waiting list control group. The treatment group participated in school-linked training in traditional martial arts. Schoolteachers were asked to rate the students on impulsiveness, resistance to rules, self-concept and inappropriate behavior. After three months of training, the students within the treatment group had improved their behavior in class and... the teachers rated the martial arts students as less impulsive and less aggressive towards other colleagues.
Lakes et al (2004) argue that these benefits are a consequence of enhanced self-regulation – historically known in martial arts as self-control – developing will and discipline.

[07/27/18]   Martial arts is a great physical outlet for a teen who isn’t interested in traditional team sports. Your teen won't be cut from a team and martial arts doesn’t require any prior experience or specific skill set. Whether you want your teen to gain some basic self-defense skills, learn self-discipline through repetition, or find enhanced self-esteem, martial arts is a great teaching tool to help teens prepare to be successful adults.

[06/27/18]   What is National Karate’s definition of focus?
Answer will be posted Friday

[06/21/18]   The word ​karate​ is a combination of two Japanese characters: ​kara​, meaning empty, and ​te​, meaning hand; thus, karate means "empty hand."

National Karate Schools offer preschool or kids’ beginner classes which get younger students moving; jumping rope, kicking a pad or the air, and learning how to focus and listen. By combining movement, listening skills, and focus karate is a great way to teach group skills to young children.
