TKD Image 3 largeCMFTP operates a traditional taekwon-do program through one of the oldest martial arts systems, the Kwon Jae-Hwa Federation. Students will be able to move up in rank through continuous participation. Students in need may be referred by parents, schools, health providers, law enforcement or by other interested parties or may choose on their own to participate in CMFTP’s martial arts program. If the student cannot pay (or can partially pay), after CMFTP verifies the financial need, CMFTP, upon application, will enroll the student for free or upon a reduced payment plan.  The enrollment is good for 12 months and can be continuous renewal.

shutterstock_146350664Although traditional martial arts date back to approximately 50, B.C., it’s been only in the latter part of the 20th century that academic and scientific researchers have studied and documented the significant benefits of traditional martial arts.  Traditional martial arts students who regularly practice, according to extensive research, have increased cognitive abilities and increased self-control. CVILLE MOVEMENT FOR THE PEOPLE offers traditional martial arts programs to Charlottesville area students in need, particularly children who are “at-risk”, who have emotional and mental needs and who otherwise cannot afford to pay for a martial arts program.
