The classes are separated by rank (beginners and ad- vanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Oviatt gym or multi- purpose room. Beginners meet from 6:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. and advanced students meet from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. We also offer our Little Dragon program designed for children ages 5to 7. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the be- ginning class. Maximum number of students in the Little Dragon program is 20, so register early. 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 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 ie~g along-~ side of them in class.
