Mentoring through Martial Arts
We offer a special interdisciplinary mentoring initiative Kung Fu Class taught by Olympic medalist, Sifu Derrick P. Whitlow I of Whitlow’s Academy of Wu Gung Tao. It is a one hour interdisciplinary Martial Arts Class for young people that focuses on critical thinking, self-control and good decision-making and focus. They meet twice a week (2 hours) as an exclusive incentive program for the under-served boys and girls. It’s designed to develop character, discipline, respect, positive behavior, critical thinking and healthy eating/nutrition personal etiquette and role-modeling through individual and group mentoring. A healthy snack and/or meal is provided after the class and each student must be selected by school principle/staff or youth service unit director to participate in the program.
