Summer Programs for Kids

We are offering a variety of summer programs designed for current students of all levels as well as advanced students and new students. These one-week sessions meet for 3 hours/day. Students will be split into different groups depending on age and belt level. In our summer programs, as in our classes, we emphasize paying attention, doing your best, treating everyone with respect, and having fun! All programs meet INDOORS with the opportunity for students to go outside and practice in the park.
Location: Our school at 408 Highland Ave. in Davis Square

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Our summer programs are designed for students ages 7 to 16 who range in experience from beginner to black belt. Each one-week session will include 15 hours of kung fu training taught by Instructor Mark Carlett or Instructor Karen Gutterman and our other instructors. In our summer programs, as in our classes, we emphasize paying attention, doing your best, treating everyone with respect, and having fun. By training with us, your child can develop better focus, concentration, physical coordination, flexibility, confidence, patience, and discipline. With hard work and dedication, a student can accomplish in one week what would normally take two to three months in regular, school-year classes.
