I want to thank Star Martial Arts for bringing your taekwon dointervention program to Bristol and Pinewood Elementary schools this year. I heard back from students that they LOVED going to taekwondo and other students would stop me in the hallway and ask if they could go to taekwondo, too! As a social worker in the schools, I not only saw happy students, I saw students who were learning to be strong - both physically and emotionally! Our students learned valuable life lessons in a way that that was engaging to them. Teachers reported to me they noticed a change in their student’s self confidence and how they conducted themselves in the classroom. Another aspect of the program that I appreciated was your willingness to make the time for the intervention work for us. You, and any other instructors who came, were on time, professional, and consistent. It is evident to me, through watching you lead sessions and through conversations, that you care about our students, our schools, and our community. Thank you for providing this intervention to our students!!
