Please check with your child's school about whether they are eligible to take the bus and get permission to take a bus different from their usual route to this After School activity.
This program includes: Taekwondo classes, self defense, physical fitness, cardio, flexibility, and strengthening mental focus.
Martial arts have been proven to help improve concentration, confidence, self-esteem, focus, as well as physical skills like balance, cardio health, and flexibility. Great for kids and adults with ADHD. A structured physical activity that is not competitive like a team sport, martial arts allows each student to build their own skills and improve at their own pace.
Program continues to run during Winter vacation, February vacation, and April vacation.
