Class meets BANK 15 Year: iRate % APR 30 Year: % Rate APR Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the Oviatt gym or multi- purpose room. Beginners meet from 6-6:30 p.m. and advanced students meet from 6:30-7:30 p.m. (Times can vary.) We also offer a Little Dragon program designed for children ages five to seven. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the be- ginning class. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline and persever- ance. Competition is also available for those students who are interested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives confidence and allows the students to use the skills they have learned in class. Families are strongly encouraged to join and train together. We found that the kids learn better when one or both of their parents/guardians are learning along- side of them in class.
