Kids can show their leadership by asking their teacher if they would like us to come to THEIR classroom.
Students in the Pre School program have just been amazing. Those who have persevered through the challenges of their training are advancing very rapidly. It is absolutely amazing to see what these students have already accomplished.
We now have students who have achieved the highest level of belt rank in the program, and some who will soon be graduating and moving to the Kids program. Way to go!
