The foundation for character building and success starts at home. The schools and role models that impact your child’s life assist in reinforcing the aspirations that you have for your child’s development and future.
Karatatot, which is a unique program offered by Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park, is a combination of exercise and karate in a format specifically designed for children ages 4½ and up. In a fun filled and nurturing setting your children learn concentration, discipline, respect, as well as an understanding of self defense at his or her own level.
The results are improved strength, coordination, and flexibility and the self-confidence and that we all want for our children. These children are learning child safety and stranger training. They are becoming better students at school and better listeners at home.
Congratulations to all the Karatatot’s who received their coordination tip:

A few months ago, while returning to my car after attending a wake, I was surprised to catch a glimpse of something that immediately brought me back to my elementary school days. Directly in front of me stood a portion of the original concrete wall that had surrounded my alma mater.
In 1922, Corpus Christi Church purchased the Robert Graves estate on Searing Avenue and transformed its building into a parish school. It was a beautiful structure of Spanish-style architecture surrounded by the concrete wall, sporting huge ornate iron gates.
