While there are literally hundreds of styles of martial arts around the world far too many focus just on style and the sports elements and are not designed for actual combat and use for taking out a real opponent in a real life situation. This also teaches them body awareness, which is immensely helpful in the world of sports. The problem of funding for the arts is not at all a new problem and unfortunately in the current economic state it has been magnified. Camp is located 2.5 hours from New York City and nestled comfortably on 170 pristine acres in the Catskill Mountains of New York State.
While on one hand, martial arts teach you to have a defensive attitude essentially for utilizing in helping others, the other is all about assaulting, victimizing, and seeking advantage of someone who is helpless. Once accepted into the Sports & Arts Program, you will have an individually constructed timetable that keeps your training schedule in mind.
French Woods Sports and Arts Center provides the summer of a lifetime in a safe, supportive, supervised and age appropriate environment. Students who are well educated in the arts have an advantage over students who are not. This scenario occurs throughout our country in schools who seek to embed Music Pedagogy in the school curriculum.
French Woods Sports and Arts Center has a fully elective program, which allows campers to choose from traditional and not-so-traditional summer camp activities. Camp has long been a place where fun and fellowship abound, and where campers learn about themselves and the natural world.
In addition to teaching programs teach students arts for their own sake, teaching students to make and experience art is extremely beneficial to a student’s personal, intellectual and social development. Aspiring artists who would like to have a foundation in performing arts can consider applying for the Associate of Arts in Performing Arts.
