On the morning of Monday, January 8th, we kicked off the program with ten enthusiastic students. With plenty of space in the Cross Athletic Center gym, students are socially distant for individual drills and learning. Students remain socially distant for limited partner drills to help them understand the purpose of many things better.
Essentially, the program covers ’striking’ exercises and drills from Karate and Kickboxing on Mondays, and self-defense material taken from taken primarily from Jiu-jitsu on Thursdays. Since the kids are learning a variety of material from three different Martial Arts they are, in a sense, practicing a form of Mixed Martial Arts!
The feedback we’ve gotten so far is very positive and there’s already talk of making this a permanent program at Miss Hall’s. We would like to thank the students for being so great in the debut of the school’s martial arts class. Also, special thanks goes to the amazing staff at Miss Hall’s for trusting ZenQuest and making this program happen!
