★ Orange Bar Colors of Character Sheet: Colors of Character connects the Three Rules we teach in the dojo to home and school.

School Success Program

Go Beyond the Grades is a program that we created to help students succeed in school. From grade improvement to social interactions, Go Beyond the Grades helps school aged children (as well as adults) navigate day to day interactions and how to be respectful, controlled, and disciplined in a professional setting. Students learn personal space boundaries, social emotional skills, and tools to connect with your teacher.
Go Beyond the Grades is implemented in four modules throughout the year in August, October, January, and March.

Know Your Art!

Shaolin Kung Fu pulls lessons from five core animals: Tiger, Crane, Leopard, Snake, and Dragon. Each of these animals teaches unique lessons in fighting and in leadership. The tiger tends to be a more assertive and direct animal. The crane tends to be patient and structured. The leopard is creative, rhythmic, and strategic. The snake is focused and precise. The dragon is wise, and understands the best solution based on experience and a broad perspective.
