Dear Parents and Students,
Please click the link below to view the October Class Curriculum:
Also, we have added Jiu Jitsu classes back to the regular schedule. Jiu Jitsu is a separate martial art that is completely different from Taekwondo. It consists mostly of wrestling type techniques. This class requires a different uniform and there is also a different belt system. Students must be at least 8 years old to take this program. If you are a current CMA member, there is no additional cost to take this class aside from the cost of the uniform. If you are interested in enrolling in Jiu Jitsu classes please respond to this email Classes will be held on Tuesday’s at 4:45pm and Thursday’s at 5:30pm.
