I will send my kid to taekwondo when she reaches the appropriate age for entry not because I want her to learn how to fight back, I want her to learn about discipline, patience and determination through martial arts. Another way is to toughen her body & build better immune system. Finally, if she really gets to the point where reasoning is not useful and the bullies or bad people try to threaten her life, I really think it’s good to put her martial arts into the right use by then. It’s a flight or fight only for life-threatening situations that I will keep telling her then only she is allowed to use martial arts to do self-defense and for personal protection. Otherwise, I will teach her to stay cool and calm most of the times. Because fighting is not right, never and not always the best idea to resolve a situation, it can only makes things worse in fact.
