The American Black Belt Academy in Massapequa Park is introducing a new karate program for children that are 3 years old.
The “Ninja Turtle” class will teach the children basic martial arts movements while at the same time increase their attention span and get them used to being in a structured environment.
The owners of the school, Tom and Lorraine LoVarco say they started this program on an experimental basis last year and were very pleased with the progress the children made and are now expanding the program to open it up to the public. Convenient class times are available during the week in the early and late afternoon.
The class size is also limited in order to give all the children specialized attention. American Black Belt is located on Merrick Road 2 blocks west of Massapequa High School on the north side of the street. For information on the Ninja Turtle program you can contact the school at 795-8531.
