Master Marr's Taekwon-do offers classes year-round for children and adults in the original Korean martial art of Taekwon-do. During the summer, they offer two week-long day camps–a perfect chance for beginners to kickstart their training, and for experienced martial artists to hone their skills.
Students will start each day with a combined class, followed by break-out sessions tailored to each student. Combining individual attention with a supportive group dynamic allows campers to learn and have fun with kids of varying ages and abilities.
Younger children come for a half-day of martial arts practice, age-appropriate conditioning, and challenging games. Older children stay after lunch for more training and to prepare a demonstration for friends and family.
Activities take place in their bright, air-conditioned space in Shaker Heights, as well as outside when weather permits. Campers will be physically and mentally active for much of the day, and should come prepared to work hard. However, time for building friendships and free play are factored in as well.
Co-owners James Marr and Elaine Bayless have been teaching children for over fifteen years, helping them to build stronger bodies and minds, and ultimately, to become more self-aware and respectful of others. The husband and wife team opened their first Taekwon-do school in New Jersey in 2002. Eleven years and over 1500 students later, Marr and Bayless moved to Ohio to be closer to extended family. Master Marr's Taekwon-do opened on Chagrin Boulevard in Shaker Heights in the spring of 2014.
Tuition includes a healthy snack each day and a Taekwon-do uniform for new students. Uniforms will be worn inside the school, and gym clothes and sneakers for outside activities. Participants must bring their own lunch and reusable water bottle. Current students of Master Marr's Taekwon-do receive a discount on tuition.
