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_146350664According to http://www.city-data.com/, in 2016 approximately 38.3% of the residents in Charlottesville were below the poverty level as compared to 14.6% statewide. Youth from these families have less opportunities available to them.  The result is they are statistically more likely to have low academic achievement, drop out of school, and have health, behavior and emotional issues.

C’ville Movement for the People, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to providing all children in the Charlottesville area the opportunity to enroll in our Taekwon-Do classes.

The five tenets of Taekwon-Do taught at our school are courtesy, integrity, self-control, perseverance and indomitable will. The combination of these tenets and the physical demands of Taekwon-Do help students  gain confidence, self-respect, strength, balance, stamina, respect for others and overall mental and physical health.  Studies show  there is a significant positive effect of traditional martial arts on a child’s academic performance and a child’s physical, emotional and mental well being. This benefits the community, the student’s future and future generations of children.
