Students of all ages and developmental abilities thrive at Legacy. The "Exceptional Program" at Legacy individually evaluates each student to ensure entry into the optimal program. It might be private lessons at first, but the ultimate goal is to mainstream into our regular classes. Legacy staff is well trained and certified to work with all diagnoses. We work with students diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, PDD, Downs Syndrome, CP, dyspraxia and other developmental delays. Our program is designed and modified by Master Ami who holds a doctorate in physical therapy. The use of focus based training and positive reinforcement, along with our personally designed "square method," has had amazing results and is currently being utilized at several martial art schools across the US!!
PeeWee TKD is a specially designed class for 3, 4 & 5 year olds. It combines beginner martial arts with gross motor development & works on social interactions & preschool/kindergarten prep. From learning jumping and kicking skills, to practicing taking turns and waiting in line, we cover a multitude of age appropriate activities. Class size is extremely limited so each child gets individualized and group attention. Our PeeWee graduates not only succeed in our tae kwon do program, but have also developed the physical skills & coordination to succeed in other sports as well!!
