Dear Woodstock Families,

Thank you for your interest in the after school programs!  This is information about the programs offered at our school.  You can get additional information online at the class website or by contacting the instructor.  

Registration:

Registration information is included with the class description.  Many classes offer online registration but there are also registration forms available at the school front office.  

Dismissal procedures:

At the 2:30 dismissal bell, Woodstock teachers will escort students to the gym where their after school instructor will take them to the room where their program will be held. Please be sure to arrange for your child to be picked up on time at the end of class. Woodstock School cannot provide care for your child after the end of class.     

Scholarships:

The PTA membership voted to allocate funds for after school class scholarships. We want every student to have the opportunity to take after school classes, so if your child is interested in participating in an after school program but you don’t feel you can afford it, or if you know of a family that could benefit from this opportunity, please contact the school counselor, Mr. Kosmas, by email (pkosmas@pps.net) or give him a call 503.916.6380.

Wushu Chinese Martial Arts 武术 – Grades K-5

Wushu – which is sometimes called Guoshu, Gongfu, or Kung Fu in the West – is the overall term for all self-defense sports in China. Originally, Wushu comprised a set of martial skills used by Chinese soldiers and fighters that were passed on within a family, or a monastery, or from a master to his or her students. Many of these martial arts have an ancient heritage, with Wushu practitioners dating to China’s earliest dynasties. Today, Wushu has evolved to become a national sport in the People’s Republic of China, with standardized forms, judging criteria and annual competitions. Most of the modern competition forms were derived from parent (or classic) styles and forms.

Wushu is best grouped into four categories: fighting with hands or fists, fighting with swords and other weapons, training in pairs, and training in a group. In practice, Wushu incorporates combinations of attack and defense, advance and retreat, movement and silence, acceleration and slowing down, hardness and elegance, pretense and reality.

Providing instruction in the full range of Wushu styles and forms enables us to find the best styles and techniques for each student’s age and physical capabilities. From a physical standpoint, Wushu training in Portland helps students develop strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, stamina, reflexes, and body awareness. On an emotional and intellectual level, we have found that Wushu helps young people gain better self-discipline, focus, and respect both for themselves and for others.

Day and Time: Thursdays, 2:30 – 3:30
Location: gym
Cost: $155 (for 11 weeks) + $15.45 for Nunchucks
