Author tells about the program in the following way: „TAEKWONDIX® is a set of motivational and educational cards, cards games, logical, board and dice games for the youngest students of Taekwon-Do. This is an alternative for the passive using of free time; it may be used at the camps, trips and other peer or family meetings. The program was established in 1996 and it provides a unique reward for the efforts made by children during the training classes. It is an ennoblement and appreciation of the youngest student. Trainings require from children a great discipline and concentration. The system gives the adepts an opportunity for a smooth transition to those behaviors through the happiness and entertainment. In an easy way it allows also to move ideas, knowledge and values to their family house. The children learn to play games deprived of brutality. It is an art of learning Taekwon-Do in a funny way!”

TAEKWONDIX® presented solutions which increase the interest and engagement of children in Taekwon-Do training while directing the adepts to the side of passion, entertainment and hobby. Through the plays and fun it implements the adepts to learning the general accepted norms, behaviors and interpersonal relationships.
