Medford, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2005
The Shaolin Kung Fu Studios is offering free martial arts classes to any student enrolled in the Patchogue-Medford school district until a new school budget is passed.
ÂWe recognize the importance of extracurricular activities such as a sports program, a music program, and other such offerings in developing confidence, social awareness, and interpersonal skills in todayÂs students, Â says head instructor Michael Evans. ÂNormally, our schools provide these opportunities, but unfortunately, the Patchogue-Medford district canÂt afford it this year.Â
In an effort to provide a creative outlet for those most affected by the budgetary shortfall, Michael and his staff have decided to open their doors to the students of the district by waiving all registration and tuition fees until the public school system can once again afford to provide such programs. Students wishing to participate need only be registered in the Pat-Med schools for the upcoming school year. This program is available to children in grades K through 12. ÂWhile weÂd love to have every person in the town involved, for safety and quality control reasons we only have room for five to ten participants in each of our four age groups,Â says Michael.
Michael, a 4th degree Black Sash, has been a student and disciple of Sigung Moses Arocho since 1995, and has also studied several other arts. He is a Graduate of the NY College of Health Professions in Syosset, NY, where he studied Massage Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "My goal has always been to re-introduce the tradition of the kwoon (martial arts school) as being a central part of the community. In the old days in China, a kwoon was a place for not only martial training, but an institute of scholarly pursuits, a place of help in time of need, and of healing in times of pain," says Michael. Michael teaches traditional Northern Shaolin kung fu to children and adults at the Shaolin Kung Fu Studios in Medford, NY.
