The 2017-2018 school year will be our seventh year of having a martial arts program, and the benefits have been amazing. Students have cited better focus, discipline, and confidence as the result of taking martial arts.
My high school is a charter school that is arts integrated, so creativity happens in every class, from art class to History, Science and English.
My students love to showcase themselves through their art. They are passionate and expressive, and everything I love about teaching. Martial Arts provides a way for them to express themselves physically.
This will be the first year I have had student's qualify to compete at the USA NKF (National Karate Federation) National Championship and Team Trials tournament. It is one of the few events that you must qualify to attend. USANKF is the governing body of Olympic karate for the USA. This project will cover entries for them.
I am so proud of these students and their hard work on our team!
It is a huge accomplishment for them to qualify and be able to compete at this tournament. It will be one of the hardest events they have competed at, and both them and I are looking forward to watching them rise to this challenge.
