The study of Taekwon-Do offers several unique advantages to the physical fitness of the student. No doubt one of life's most treasured assets is good health. Therefore, one of the great cardinal sins of mankind is his abuse of this asset.

Wealth, power, fame and the blessing of physical beauty are all relatively unimportant if one does not possess good health. An individual owes it to himself and his family to constantly maintain and improve his health. Parents should see theirs child's heath is their utmost concern."

"Taekwon-Do may be practiced individually or in groups without the use of weights or special equipment. It is, in most cases, practiced alone except the sparring. Since the body sets its own limits, injuries or strains are rare and the physical condition of the student paces him automatically. The entire muscle system of the body, from the fingers to the toes, is brought into play.

The training does not produce large knotty muscles; it tends to exchange flabby fat tissue for lean tissue. The thick muscles developed through weight training tend to push the blood vessels apart without adding new ones to fill the gap. Such tissue has difficulty in receiving oxygen and disposing of waste through the blood stream and thus tires more easily.

Taekwon-Do's high repetition, low resistance movements develop a longer, leaner and more flexible musculature. Such muscles have more of their areas close to blood supply routes, thus producing maximum endurance and well-being. The emphasis in twisting the trunk in executing the kicking movements and in counterbalancing the hand movements builds a firm, well-muscled abdomen. The high leg raise preceding most of the kicks in Taekwon-Do also develops the side of the trunk and inner thigh muscles.

The study of Taekwon-Do is particularly recommended for women because of its development of the lower abdomen, hips and inner thighs; areas which produce a youthful feminine figure for women of all ages. After childbirth in particular, these areas are stretched and weakened; Taekwon-Do training is ideal to restore muscle tone for health as well as appearance.

The typical training regimen, involving extensive movements of the entire body, raises the pulse rate and oxygen characteristics of the hearth and lungs over an extended period. This increased ventilation is termed an aerobic effect.

The training tends to normalizes body weight in that it results in a gain of solid tissue for the underweight and a loss of body fat for the obese. The estimated calorie-consumption for a vigorous Taekwon-Do workout is about six hundred calories per hour, one of the highest for any sports activity.
Mental Benefits include:
  • Improved concentration for better work and study habits
  • Stress reduction and the ability to relax
  • Confidence in knowing you can defend yourself and your family
  • Confidence in knowing how to deal with bullies and other confrontations
  • A positive attitude toward life through self-confidence and self-discipline
  • Self-esteem and your outlook on life
  • Respect for yourself and those around you
  • Motivation and an 'I Can Do It' attitude

Athena Women Self-Defense

Relaxed students learn faster so we teach you in a way that won’t make you feel self-conscious while learning how to defend yourself. Our Athena Women training is designed for beginners of a wide range of ages and abilities. This means the techniques you’ll learn are easy to remember, simple to do, and they will work against a stronger person. We introduce our techniques to you at your pace.
Kreimer’s Karate and Athena Women instructor, Scott Lewis, taught flying and has incorporated his flight instruction experience into this course. He realizes that just as walking into an airport flight school can make people nervous, so can opening the door to a martial arts school. And just as in an airplane, relaxed students who are enjoying their training learn faster and retain more. Here's how you know his approach works: After only eight hours of training, his students are fighting back (against a padded instructor) vigorously enough to disable an attacker.

Some other benefits of training with Athena Women:
• Athena Women training was developed with input from law enforcement officers and stresses awareness and avoidance. Self-protection starts with not needing to physically defend yourself.
• You won't go home and forget what you've been exposed to—a common problem with short courses. Each Athena Women course includes, at no extra charge, a student manual on CD with information about how predators think, our awareness and avoidance strategies, and our self defense techniques described in it. This makes Athena Women training a better value.
• If you have children, you can teach them the awareness and avoidance steps you've learned, including our online safety advice that goes beyond the commonplace tips.
• Once you’ve learned our techniques, you have the option to train escaping and fighting your way out of today's common attack situations against a padded instructor (not other students). This is a benefit unavailable in most courses, yet it’s where our students make their biggest leaps in their skills and confidence.
