A Tae kwon do Girl | The 25 and under crowd

Becoming a tae kwon do girl can literally save your life.

A tae kwon do girl is an athlete. Statistically, we know that 41% of all High School athletes are girls. There are 755 more women's college sports teams than men's in the United States.

We owe the sports equality phenomenon to the Nixon administration's 1972 - Title IX Act. We have just passed the 35th anniversary of this historic legislation and have now had a lifetime to observe its effects on girls athletics.

In 1972 when Title IX was passed, only 1 in 27 girls participated in sports. Now 1 girl out of every 2.5 play sports. That's a dramatic difference.

Participation in tae kwon do sport at a younger age gives female athletes numerous advantages throughtout life.

How can you keep a taekwondo girl interested in taekwondo sport?

The absolute, guaranteed, no doubt about it, best way to keep a girl interested is for Mom and Dad to participate in taekwondo sport.

Many taekwondo schools use the slogan, "The family that kicks together, sticks together." They use this slogan because it's TRUE

So turn off the TV and help a taekwondo girl reap the benefits of the sport. And while you're at it, take classes regularly yourself. The benefits are so tremendous and long term.

Trust me, you will be forever grateful that you did.

Self Confidence
is the bottom line

What is the underlying theme within all these statistics?

The tae kwon do girl is more confident than her peers. The greater a girl's self esteem, the greater her body image.
