The Youn Wha Youth Development Academy aims to prepare its students to excel as young leaders of tomorrow by combining an educational curriculum tailored specifically for children with enhanced, first-class personal development. Unlike most after-school programs, we offer after-school homework assistance, in combination with our exclusive martial arts mentoring programs.
Program administration is provided by World Youn Wha Ryu Certified Instructors.
Youn Wha Youth is open to all public and private school children.
Our target program participants will range in age from five to thirteen years old and be enrolled in grade levels kindergarten through seventh grade. This program will be open to older siblings of the children enrolled in our core program, children older than thirteen with previous years of enrollment in the academy and older children on a case-by-case basis.
Youn Wha Youth Development Academy participation has progressive growth opportunities through rank promotions, seminars, tournaments and other associated events and programs.
Are your nights anything like ours were? Rush home from work to pick up your children from after-school care, hurry them to practice, do homework, eat a hurried dinner and hope to get them to bed at a decent hour.
Then It Is Time For A Change!
Does your child currently go to a “Day Care” or other after-school program where they watch television, play video games and participate in an unstructured, semi-supervised program?
Our Youn Wha Youth Development Program was designed with busy, working families in mind. Your children will be picked up at school or ride the available school bus to our academy where they will be greeted by our staff of certified martial arts instructors.
Our Quitman Academy Program runs from 3:30 PM until 6:00 PM Monday through Friday. Each academy member will receive a snack, participate in one hour of structured and supervised studying, reading or other academic endeavor, and end their afternoon participating in our specialized martial arts program from 4:30 PM until 5:30 PM.
All students in Grandmaster Han’s are expected to follow the training principles: Be Polite, Be Patient, Be Alert, Be Brave, Do Your Best, Respect Yourself and Others.
The Youn Wha Youth Development Program goes a step further. Students are given guidance in understanding and applying the principles. Positive habits take time to develop. So, each student is tasked with practicing the principles in smaller, understandable steps. For example, they will be asked to randomly demonstrate a principle such as being polite. A suggestion would be to respond to adults with Yes Sir or Yes Ma’am. Another suggestion would be to help carry groceries without being asked.
An application of being brave would be to resist negative peer pressure. An example would be to resist the encouragement by peers to tease or bully another child. This would also support respect for one’s self and others. Someone who respects his or her self has no need to put others down to feel better.
Each student will be congratulated during class for sharing how they applied the training principles in their daily life.
