NYC Goju Ryu Karate/ After-school program is a wonderful place for a child's mind, body and spirit. My son who was diagnosed with ADHD, has taken Karate lessons here since 2013.  Focusing was very challenging for him.  I have seen great improvement in his focus, self esteem and muscle tone.  My daughter has attended the after school for over a year.  I have noticed improvement in her coordination, strength, and overall grades since attending the program.  She has made great friendships, and has a great time participating in art, music, and the various physical activities the program offers.  Most importantly, as a working mom,  I really appreciate that her homework is completed before she gets home.  I highly recommend this program to working parents.  NYC Goju Ryu has a safe, nurturing, and disciplined environment, that encourages children to be the best they can be.  But most of all,  my kids love being there!
