Abstract

Conclusive evidence regarding the effects of martial arts within research literature remains scarce. In addition, little is known about how children experience participation, and involvement in martial arts (Theeboom, De Knop & Vertonghen, 2009). This study aims to address the evident gap in literature and research, that explores children’s participation and involvement in Taekwon-Do. This area has been identified through pre-empirical reading, thus the intention is to make an original contribution to the knowledge base.
