Program Description

Our summer program is designed for students (ages 7-16) who range from beginner to black belt. This one-week program will include 15 hours of kung fu training and will be taught by Mark Carletti, Ph.D., Tufts University and Karen Gutterman, M.S.. With hard work, focus and dedication to practice, a student can accomplish in one week what would normally take 1-3 months in regular classes during the school year. The student will enjoy themselves with fun activities that develop better focus and concentration, increase physical coordination, flexibility and confidence, and help teach values of patience, respect and discipline.
