Children and Martial Arts

It's a Fantastic, Healthy Activity.   
Martial arts training, and especially taekwondo training, is an excellent activity for children to move around and not only develop their coordination but also positive social skills through challenging exercises and games coupled with good manners.

It has Many Positive Effects.   
In addition to a safe environment, the Mount Shasta Martial Arts Program (MSMAP) strives to create a supportive and rewarding environment that invigorates the participants and refreshes their outlook towards many areas of their lives. Training with MSMAP enables participants to develop a positive attitude when facing challenges at home, school, and everywhere...and achieve really big things.
