Asheville, NC November 8, 2010 — Beginning the week after Thanksgiving, Asheville Sun Soo will offer an 8-week introductory Tae Kwon Do session for area residents, students, staff, and family members of Odyssey Community School. The course is value-priced at $250 to include the uniform and up to three weekly classes.
Continuing its commitment to offer adult programs as well as student-based offerings to its surrounding neighbors and community, Odyssey will host four classes weekly at their Montford Historic District campus on Zillicoa Street in North Asheville. Kids classes will be offered twice weekly from 4:00 – 4:45 followed by an adults-only class from 5:00 – 6:00 PM. Kids can return to after-school care until 6:00 if necessary.
Participants are also invited to attend a third class at no cost at Sun Soo’s main facility in the K-Mart Plaza on Patton Avenue. A complete Taekwondo schedule is available on their website at www.martialartsasheville.com.
Head instructor Master Tony Morris notes, “our traditional Tae Kwon Do tenets of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, and Indomitable Spirit are completely consistent with Odyssey’s philosophy of respectful interaction in an emotionally safe place. Bringing this special session to the school gym provides a convenient opportunity for the community to explore the benefits of martial arts.”
Students will be eligible to test for their white-yellow belt at the end of the introductory session. This martial arts session underscores Odyssey’s commitment to life-long learning and self knowledge, as students can continue their martial arts self defense training in the advanced program at Asheville Sun Soo Traditional Tae Kwon Do Academy.
