I first brought my kids to DCSDKA when they were 5 and 7 and three years later the school is part of our lives and will be for a long time. My kids have gained so much from being part of DCSDKA. Not only are they strong, fit and flexible, they are part of a real community, with teachers and fellow students who care about their development and value who they are and what they will become. Not only do they get excellent instruction, they feel part of something larger then themselves. They get to watch other kids and adults work hard and make progress. They get to experience a great sense of accomplishment themselves when they stick with the program and move up levels.
Do my kids sometimes complain about going to class? Yes! I’ve even had to drag them kicking and screaming. But they are always glad they went and it’s been worth it on so many levels. Its helped them have a sense of purpose and shown them the value of persistence and hard work in a tangible way. It’s one of the most important investments we’ve made in our children’s physical and ethical development. I would highly recommend DCSDKA to other families.
