With more than 9 Million school age children nationwide left without supervision there is no wonder why there is a nationwide epidemic that is surfacing with our children. Better than 50% of all juvenile crime occurs between the hours of 3PM to 8PM. Another statistic shows that these same children will spend 3 hours watching television everyday after school but only 30 minutes reading. This is a major factor in why our reading scores are declining. These same children were frightened, couldn’t structure their own time, didn’t do their homework or appointed chores, or invited friends in against house rules. In addition they struggle with issues of self-discipline despite their evidence of intelligence.
A report done for the President of the United States prepared by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Serviced and the Secretary of Education states that “Our nation's young people are, in large measure, inactive, unfit, and increasingly overweight. Physical inactivity threatens to reverse the decades-long progress in reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases. Ultimately this could have a devastating impact on our national health care budget.”
At Tiger Do Jang Karate we know that we cannot help every child in the United States but we know that we can make a significant impact on the children who come into our program. Below are the benefits to our program and links to sign up your child for this well structured program.
Our goal with the "After School Enrichment Program" is to provide a structured environment.
We will require each student to do homework for an hour each day. If they do not have homework, they will participate in some educational activity. Each student will receive Karate Instruction as part of the program, In addition students will have the option of taking evening and weekend classes at no additional charge. A nutritional snack will be provided each day. Being a family owned and run business we understand the difficulties with traffic in DC METRO area, so we are offering a pickup time of 6:30 PM Monday through Friday's. When Schools schedule holidays and teacher in service days, we will provide Karate Camp for an additional charge, ask our staff for details. and more...
