Don’t miss out on the next 12 week sessions of Martial Arts and Tumbling at the YMCA! Sign up now to ensure your child’s spot!
Martial Arts is more than just throwing punches and doing spinning kicks, it is a discipline of respect, courage, and fitness. It’s not just physical fitness, but mental fitness as well.
Come in to watch and listen; you may even hear a 5 year old count to ten in Korean.
“During the testing period, you see youth from ages 5 and up, listen to commands in Korean and do the skill to almost perfection,” said Youth Programs Coordinator, Shelby-lain Brown. “It is not just about the athletic skills, it’s about character and personal discipline.”
At the end of each semester, each student will have the opportunity to test and upgrade their belt! The Martial Arts Program begins on April 8th, so get into the YMCA to sign up! Sign up for Tuesday/Thursday sessions ($95 for members/$110 for non-members) or Saturday sessions ($45 for members/$60 for non-members). A $10 late registration fee will be implemented after the registration deadline. Sign-up now and work your way towards earning a black belt.
