NORWALK FAMILY TAE KWON DO Jason Brooks is the head instructor of the school, Norwalk Family Tae Kwon Do, which offer programs for ages 5 through adults. The classes are separated by rank (beginners and advanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Oviatt Multi-purpose room (door #16) with a 6:00 p.m. start. Times/dates may vary depending on school activities. We also offer the Little Dragon program designed for children ages 5 to 7. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the beginning class. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, lessons, and instructions on topics 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. The school has found that the kids learn better when one or both of their parents/guardians are learning along side of them in class. Cost per session: Little Dragons (twice a week) - Norwalk residents: $46/non-resident: $53; Family Tae Kwon Do (1st family member) - Norwalk residents: $57.50/ non-residents: $66.25; 2nd and 3rd Family Member - Norwalk residents: $28.75 each/non-residents: $33.25 each; Maximum Family Fee - Norwalk residents: $115/non-residents: $132.50.
