When Is The Best Age To Start Taekwondo?

This is such a difficult question and solely depends on the individual and their concentration span and their work ethic. I have known 6 year olds practise like they are 26 and I have known 12 year olds not have high enough concentration levels. It is down to the individual. I am a big believer though that getting youngsters into a martial art at an extremely young age is not always a good thing. You find that the earlier they start the quicker they get bored. In my experience 8-12 years old is the perfect age, as they are there because they want to be and can hopefully grasp concepts a lot quicker and progress faster. That said check out 7 year old Ruby who has been practising for 9 months.


If you want to be good at anything you need to master the basics. Being exception at the basics will give you a concrete foundation to build on and allow you to reach your full potential. The more basic technique you can do the better.By neglecting your basics you are neglecting your martial art. The highest form of mental and physical training is trying to perfect your basic technique and iron out your faults. If you don't practise bad habits creep in and this is why it's vital that Instructors continue their training as well as teaching. Remember if you want to be an excellent martial artist attention to detail is the key and basics are your starting and finishing point.
