Sport is integral to Modern English School's core curriculum, enabling students to develop sportsmanship and leadership skills. Taekwondo promotes the overall development of a child by creating a synergy of mind, body, and soul.
The balance between the three helps students achieve great focus and the right attitude, bringing them closer to their life goals. Some popular techniques, such as Poomsae and Kyorugi in Taekwondo, promote discipline and mental fitness among students.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the supporters, coaches, and volunteers who have contributed to making this championship a reality.
