Little Ninjas Tae Kwon Do

This program is specifically designed to help teach 4 to 12 year olds the important qualities of respect, self-control and confidence, while building motor skills and coordination. In addition, children will learn important “stranger danger” and bully drills. The first years are the most important, so start early and give your child the important skills to succeed throughout their lives. The Belvidere Park District does not require your child to purchase any additional equipment to participate. However, if you would like to move up in the rank/belt system, additional equipment, uniform and testing fees may apply via your instructor.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is an ancient practice of physical well-being which promotes optimum health. Through the use of gentle stretching and deep breathing techniques, yoga tones muscles, increases strength and flexibility, reduces stress, improves concentration, and results in a sense of balance and peace. The atmosphere of the class is quiet and soothing. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace. Wear loose fitting clothing and bring a blanket or mat. (PK)
