ACADEMY FOR MARTIAL ARTS (THE)
8 Orangetown Shopping Center, Orangeburg
845-359-4500

Children are precious. As a parent, you know it is your responsibility to protect your child from all sorts of dangerous situations. It isn't easy. They grow up fast. Time flies, and eventually children must learn to defend themselves. You certainly do not want your son or daughter to be bullied, or to become a bully. Martial Arts lessons are a fantastic solution. Every kid should learn self-defense. It's like learning to swim—it’s lots of fun, it can save your life, and it builds self-control and self-confidence. Thomas Clifford's Martial Arts has a program that is perfect for your child.
