No, Taekwondo will not stunt the growth of a teenager. There is some concern that weightlifitng sports might stunt a teenagers grwoth, but taekwondo workouts do not employ the use of weights. Exercises such as pushups, crunches and squats work the muscles by lifting the thletes own body weight. These types of exercises are very safe for young althletes, and they are the most common exercises employed in taekwondo classes.
