Training in Taekwondo increases one's self-concept (the beliefs that you have about yourself, as opposed to understanding who you are via other people's opinions of you). For instance, it has been found that women training in Taekwondo have a greater physical, personal, social, identity, and satisfaction self-concept. Students who are more self-confident and compete in Taekwondo tournaments are more likely to win their bouts.
The moral benefits of Taekwondo include development of good character, self-control, and a non-violent attitude. Taekwondo stresses showing respect for oneself, fellow students, instructors, parents, elders, and members of the public. Achieving proficiency in Taekwondo techniques demands patience, perseverance, and a desire for perfection.
Humility is a quality of all serious Taekwondo students. Although practicing Taekwondo boosts self-confidence, this does not convey a false sense of superiority. On the contrary, a good student should be humble and considerate. Taekwondo practitioners have the highest regard for the morality and ethics of Taekwondo.
