The classes are separated by rank (beginners and advanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at Oviatt gym (6 p.m. start) or Multi-purpose room (7 p.m. start). Times will vary depending on location due to school activities. We also offer our Little Dragon program designed for children ages 5 to 7. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the begin- ning class. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense and lessons and instructions on top- ics such as respect, self-discipline and perseverance. Competition is also available for those students who are interested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives confidenceand allows the students to use the skills they have learned in class.
