Every Saturday from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. I conduct a class for children from 8 to 12 years old at the Presidio studio. These classes are designed to not only teach your children to be physically safe, but also to share life tools that will help them with school and their relationship to others.

Here are some of the skills they will learn:

·     Being unafraid of bullies

·     Knowing how to speak up if someone is making them feel uncomfortable

·     Disciplining/Controlling their bodies and behaviors

·     Meditation practices

·     Noncompetitive self-defense

·     Street safety

·     The Art of Listening

·     Interactive learning through martial arts drills, games and practices

·     Learning the art of Kung Fu San Soo

If your child has ever participated in one of our one-day assault prevention classes, you know how effective our training can be. Every Saturday your child will learn skills which will keep him or her safe while also helping them in every aspect of life.

Note: while course fee is monthly, students can begin enrollment any week.  For more information:
