The staff at Velocity Martial Arts swears by the martial arts as a nonacademic method for gifting kids with the tools they need to become successful and productive adults. As they learn combative moves in capoeira, Brazilian jujitsu, and kickboxing classes, they also learn to temper themselves and have respect for fellow students. Led by mixed-martial-arts Master Charles Panoyan, the school's instructors accept students of almost any age. That means even adults can learn body-conditioning exercises and self-defense moves that will serve them well on the street or when being pelted with mashed potatoes during a raucous board meeting.
