Martial Arts for Kids

Learning martial arts at an early age helps children develop confidence in all areas of their lives, as they find that they are capable of more than they imagined, and that hard work pays off. Sifu Slaughter’s school instills young students with a strong sense of self-worth, respect for themselves and for others, and – most important from the kid’s point of view – that practice can be fun! Through creative self- defense drills and interactive practice sessions, young students develop coordination and control, with a healthy dose of exercise on the side!

Student Spotlight: Mary Lou Ferraro

Mary Lou Ferraro, age 72, has been studying under Sifu Slaughter and practicing Kung Fu and Tia Chi for the past 23 years. A former surgical ICU nurse at the veterans hospital, Ms. Ferraro displays amazing energy, flexibility and power in Kung Fu classes each week, not only keeping up with, but often outshining, her much younger classmates. Ms. Ferraro holds a level two black belt in kung fu and will be testing for level 3 in early 2019. Ms. Ferraro also practices Tai Chi for increased balance and flexibility, and has taught both Kung Fu and Tai Chi.
