NORWALK FAMILY TAE KWON DO Maria Boden is the new head instructor of the school which is under new ownership. This school offers pro- grams for ages 5 through adults. The classes are sepa- rated by rank (beginners and advanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets Tuesdays and Thurs- days, in the Oviatt gym or multi-purpose room. Begin- ners meet from 6:15 to 7 p.m. and advanced students meet from 7-8 p.m. 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 begin- ning class. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline and perseverance. Com- petitiofi is also available for those students who are in- terested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives con- fidence 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.
