Prairie Martial Arts at the Paul Henson YMCA
Starting May 2nd I will begin teaching classes at the Paul Henson YMCA in Prairie Village. Classes are currently scheduled for Monday and Wednesday 7:10 to 8:00. Chung Do Kwan, has a long history with the YMCA. There are many YMCA's that currently host a Chung Do Kwan group. Many people don't know that the relationship actually goes back to 1946 in Seoul, Korea. At that time students from the original Chung Do Kwan performed a demonstration at a Seoul YMCA prior to starting a group there.
I'm looking forward to this new venture. The above photo is the fitness floor where we will train. We will be doing a demonstration in April. We will also give people a taste of what a class is like. At this point the classes will be open to students ages 8 and up. I'm eager to see who will join in the classes, and the ongoing tradition.
