Martial arts like taekwondo and karate help build up confidence in both yourself and your ability to protect yourself if you need to. This helps in self defense because it makes you less of a target to people, whether petty criminals or bullies. Bullies in particular tend to go after those who they perceive as weak. They see someone keeping their head down as a sign that that person won't be able to stand up for themselves. People with confidence and self esteem look like they have it, and keep their heads up. They give an air of strength, and are therefore not seen as targets.
