Martial Arts and Discipline Training Program

The Martial Arts and Discipline Training program has been established in partnership with two local gyms; one focused on boxing, and the other Kung Fu, depending on participant’s interest. Participants are supplied with equipment, and training in their selected martial arts. Participants must commit to six months of programming. Participants will have access to group training on self-discipline, self-respect, self-defence, and conflict reduction strategies.
