What types of activities do you offer in your after school program? Is it just martial arts?
Physical martial arts are just a small part of our program and is an elective activity. The philosophical side of martial arts or what we call "martial arts manners" serve as a back drop to the entire program. We realize that physical martial arts do not appeal to everyone, however the inherent respect and thoughtfulness that constitute "martial arts manners" do!

We offer homework assistance and subject tutoring daily and are staffed with professional educators and trained tutors. We have a mini basketball court on our training floor and offer soccer too. There are short twice weekly Tae Kwon Do lessons and electives for dance, yoga and games. Our LifeSkills curricula includes a special manners and character development component that children find fun and meaningful.Friends Forever We use a roundtable format to keep participation levels high and frequently use role play as a medium to teach the material. Children can use our computers to gain skills and there are a variety of board games and movies to choose from. We have a number of books for reading, and an area for arts and crafts .We offer ample "free time" after and between program activities.Tae Kwon Do is just a small part of the total program and is elective. It helps children to exercise and release energy, build confidence and self esteem, and understand how manners and respect are applied to every day life.

What's the best video game console?

Other things to consider: Xbox Live Indie games has some real gems on the cheap; PS3 has had a really fantastic year and a half (aside from, you know, the PSN issue) and has been hitting the 360 hard with their exclusives on cross-platform games, as well as with their PS3-only titles; on top of that, the newly-announced PSP Remastered series will be bringing in previously-exclusive PSP titles; the Wii, though when it's solid it's really solid, has more or less run its course--but its comparatively cheap pricing and Netflix integration helps a heap.
