We also offer summer camp and after school care. We incorporate TKD and philosophies with homework and after school activities.
Our philosophy is to give each person the opportunity to be their best and sense of confidence that will stay with them throughout their life.
Our vision of ROCK is to enable Autistic as well as other children with special needs to come and participate in all our activities. We will also have meetings for children as well as parents to come together and share information as well as experiences.
Martial Arts are not just physical activities, they also train people mentally. Our classes promote respect, discipline, honor, self-control, courtesy, perseverance and loyalty. ROCK specializes in teaching students of all ages. When they join, students will not only be improving their fitness and learning to defend themselves, they will be embarking on a path to improve many important aspects of their lives.
Benefits to expect:
The principal techniques are based on the design of the human body. For power, the body develops and uses the larger powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As students progress, they learn to coordinate this speed and power and develop concentration to focus all their body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of a foot.
When the speed and power developed through the Martial Arts is used in a self-defense situation against the vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the results can be incredible. Martial Arts trains a woman to emphasize many of her natural physical strengths, such as power in the legs while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing they can defend themselves, the student’s confidence will grow.
This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time. Through the Martial Arts, as a student accomplishes new goals, their level of confidence increases. The Martial Arts instill a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of life.
