Sports does not just build one’s character, it reveals it too. And to ensure this revelation is a positive one, developing holistic skills and abilities is a must.
Mount Litera School International is a humongous believer of holistic development of students. It offers a wide range of sports like squash, basketball, badminton, table tennis, mini soccer, outdoor play, and aerial silk among others. It has state-of-the-art infrastructure, a huge 45,000 square feet indoor sports arena, bringing out the best of sportsmanship in its students. This indoor play area is sometimes utilized for performances and exhibitions of students’ work. In addition, there are indoor studios for taekwondo, yoga, gymnastics, dance, chess and Lego.
Taekwondo, also known as Taekwon-Do or Tae Kwon Do, is a Korean martial arts form, which involves mastering kicking and punching techniques with special emphasis on fast kicking, head-height kicks and spinning jump kicks. The Olympic sport supports the wellbeing of not just the youth, but also of the children. We, at MLSI, offer Taekwondo as an extracurricular activity for our students.
Kiran Upadhyay is the highest belt holder and the most senior and respected lady instructor in India. She is the official instructor for Taekwondo at MLSI.
Although most parents worry about introducing their children to Taekwondo, citing risk of injuries and aggressive behaviors, it seems that it does more good than harm and children stand to particularly benefit from it. Read on to know how.
Firstly, Taekwondo training helps boost their self-discipline, control, self-esteem, physical fitness, self-defense and lastly, it grants them an increased focus.
