What do you get when you have a 3-year-old girl who
is passionate about mastering the art of Taekwondo?
You have a video which has been viewed over ten
million times! Everyone around the world is blown away at this toddler’s
taekwondo demonstration. She has completely won over the internet!Her name is
Sophie and she is a student at Premier Martial Arts. It’s a dojo which teaches
it’s students the value of patience, respect, self-control and integrity, while
of course learning valuable self defense strategies. While it is incredibly
cute to watch Sophie perform her art, the benefits it has on young children can
be immense. Many comments to this video relayed just that as they talked about
how taekwondo has led to better manners and more discipline.
Of course taekwondo can benefit kids of all ages, and
adults as well. There are many other martial arts practices out there as well
(jiujistsu, aikido, etc.) which also teach the same values of mixing patience
and control with self defense skills, as well as providing excellent workouts
for you body.
Watch this wonderful video of little Sophie going
through her training. Maybe it will inspire you to take up a martial art and
start training yourself or for your kids!
