Kung-Fu Club & Kung Fu Academy Martial Arts (Ages 7 -adult)
This is truly a challenging age for our children. They come in contact with bullies in school and may not be sure how to protect themselves. This uncertainty can bring about self-doubt. We create an environment for the discovery of confidence and trust. Or maybe your child is the one being sent to the principal’s office for aggression towards their classmates. Our instructors help to give your child an outlet for physical expression in a very structured atmosphere. Maybe it is none of the above, but rather a skill that you see as valuable to your children long term: respect, discipline and control.
