This camp builds upon the foundation of Tae Kwon Do, “The Way of the Hand and Foot”,  an art form of self-defense similar to Karate.  In addition to learning basic kicks, punches, blocks, and self defense; campers will also learn about the history of Martial Arts and its basic tenants of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, and Indomitable Spirit.  Training in the Martial Arts has shown to increase a child’s coordination, self-discipline, attention span, and confidence, all of which serve to bolster their success in academics, other sports, and with interpersonal relationships.

A very exciting part of this camp involves instruction in the history and use of at least three popular weapons often seen in children’s cartoons and movies like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Star Wars!  This will include the Nunchaku (often called “Num-chucks”), the Bo (staff or stick), and the Kitana (Japanese sword).  Children will have the opportunity to safely learn basic techniques using child-friendly foam and padded versions of their historical counterparts. The week will culminate with a Ninja performance that parents will be invited to attend on the last day.
