SCHOOL BASED/ADAPTIVE MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTION
We provide unique, unprecedented services to schools or facilities where education and therapies are being provided. Working closely with directors, principals, therapists’ or supervisors of therapy; to tailor programs for students pre-k through 21 with a variety of special needs. Classes are instructed live or virtual during school hours in conjunction with the student’s therapies and/or PE Class. This program has become increasingly popular with Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and Behaviorists as we work closely together in a fun, motivational atmosphere. Because of the program’s proven, therapeutic value, it has become inclusive in most student IEP’s.
SCHOOL BASED/TRADITIONAL MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTION
We provide a structured, traditional martial arts program for children of all ages in a typical school setting. Our educators are faced with serious issues surrounding the safety and well-being of our children inside as well as outside of school. A traditional martial arts program will bring awareness, increased self-confidence, self-esteem, structure and discipline to our children. Be the first in your school district to introduce a program to the children that actually builds character, strength, awareness and good citizens.
EXTENDED SCHOOL YEAR (ESY)
Our programs continue into the ESY as most schools continue to need services. Historically the months of July and August are filled with activities in adaptive schools, and we are right there alongside providing the same excellent service for the children! This is a great way to “test the waters” with one of our programs before committing during the school year.
Many PTO’s seek short term services either during the school day or after school. Our programs are adapted and tailored to the group’s needs. All programs are instructed in a disciplined, safe, fun and well-structured manner.
“GROUP HOME” AND ADULT SPECIALTY INSTRUCTION
Group home and on site instruction for adults is a unique alternative to transporting people to an outside facility for exercise and wellness. This could be done live at your facility, or virtually from ours! Knowing many adults have increased anxiety when leaving their residence or changing their routine; it makes perfect sense to bring instruction to them! Maintaining familiar faces in a group is the key to a successful program. Our goal is to get everyone actively involved by exercising in their own familiar environment.
In our increasingly stressful society, on site corporate wellness has become a unique alternative to going to the gym after work. Many companies provide work out areas and small gyms on site encouraging their staff to remain healthy. Physical exercise improves your mood because it increases serotonin production. Increased serotonin levels in the brain works as a natural antidepressant. A custom designed program inclusive of stretching, breathing techniques and light martial arts applications is the perfect answer!
