Tony, a retired teacher from Brooklyn, shares how training at the USA Shaolin Temple had a huge impact on his teenage son.
My son began working out at the USA Shaolin Temple in Manhattan around the time he was starting high school. I was delighted with the energy, enthusiasm and dedication that he developed with the group. His commitment to training several times per week was remarkable. The benefits to his physical growth and conditioning, while very significant, were far outweighed by his growth in maturity, perspective and patience. The practical philosophies he learned from his fellow students not only helped him in navigating the daily challenges of teenage life, but also brought us closer together. I would strongly encourage any parent to give their child the gift of the Shaolin experience.
