NORWALK FAMILY TAE KWON DO Maria Boden is the head instructor of the school which is under new ownership, Voorhees Tae Kwon Do LLC, which offers programs for ages 5 through adults. The classes are separated by rank (beginners and ad- vanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at Oviatt. 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, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline and perseverance. Co m- petition is also available for those students who are in- terested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives con- fidence and allows the students to use the skilis 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. Cost per Session: Norwalk residents, Little Dragons/ Twice a Week $46, non-residents $53; Family Tae Kwon Do (ages 8 and above), 1st Family Member $57.50, 2nd and 3rd Family Members $28.75 each, Maximum Fam- ily Fee $115.
