When navigating tough times, martial artists tap into the inner resources they develop through martial arts training to make the best of difficult situations.
In recent months, Taekwondo practice helped Akula Taekwondo students deal with stress, anxiety, disappointments - and ease the aches and strain of too much screen time. With ongoing constraints and cancellations, maintaining a fitness routine with mind-body benefits remains critical.
“Kids need to get out of the house,” said one parent. “Taekwondo has been really good for them.”
While gyms were closed, Akula students trained via video and in an outdoor setting. But video and outdoor environments significantly limit training options, so students are thrilled to be back in the studio.
“It’s great to be back on the mat,” said an adult student. “I really missed training here.”
Now that Michigan gyms are open, Akula Taekwondo is enrolling new students at a special rate of $29 for the first six weeks of lessons. Taekwondo is a great, multi-faceted total-body workout. As a result of regular training, Taekwondo athletes demonstrate high levels of cardio-respiratory fitness, excellent flexibility, outstanding dynamic upper and lower body strength, and good core endurance. Exercise also benefits the immune system.
Akula Taekwondo in Novi is a traditional martial arts school with classes for young children (ages 4-6), children (ages 7-12), teens, and adults. To learn more and sign up, visit akulatkd.com.
