A Martial Arts Program Empowering Girls Inside and Out
Based on the Vietnamese Mixed Martial Art Cuong Nhu, Wonder Girlz is a 4-week program for girls ages 8-12 that focuses on the balance of girls' self-confidence and inner strength with exercising their outer body so that the seeds are planted for the empowered lives they deserve. They are nurtured, honored, and treated with respect so that they come to know how smart, strong, and special they truly are. With an emphasis on integrity, compassion, courage, and responsibility, each class will include games, character-building exercises, creative expression, art, traditional karate forms, and lots of fun and laughter. The girls will learn basic self-defense and see how hard work can make them strong inside and out, which empowers them to tap into their own creativity and self-worth.
Ideal for all girls regardless of athletic experience.
