There is a misconception that Martial Arts schools teach our children to fight. Here are my suggestions to find a martial arts school – and you must BE SELECTIVE as there are many questionable schools and instructors: Phoenix is filled with McDojos – so be careful you are not persuaded by all of the brightly colored uniforms Whether you live in Phoenix, New York, Denver, Los Angeles, or Atlantic City, Wyoming get on your computer and search for a martial arts school in your area.
If yes, find a Chinese , Japanese or Korean martial arts school – then you should be off to winning trophies You don’t need a Chinese, Japanese or Korean instructor, there are many excellent instructors who are not oriental – take a look at Chuck Norris , Rod Sacharnoski , and the late Ed Parker , for example.
At Victoria School students are invited to build upon their creative capacity to inquire with deep curiosity, to think unconventionally, to question the norm and imagine and reflect on new perspectives in order to become more passionate and compassionate members of the local and global community.
In 2003-2004, they moved into a new facility that has a large auditorium, a theatre, an art gallery, a television studio and spacious rehearsal areas for all of the various arts to practice in. This new building makes this school a step above many of the others in the area and because of that, the competition to be admitted to this school is very difficult.
We know that creativity, ingenuity, empathy and innovation are the keys to success in today’s complex, changing world and as such, Victoria students are fortunate to attend the district’s only K-12 school offering arts programming in Dance, Music, Visual Art, New Media and Drama within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Programme.
