I wanted to take a moment and thank you for everything you have done, are doing, and continue to do for my son, Blaize . He was diagnosed with ADHD in Kindergarten.After being re-evaluated, he was also diagnosed with Severe Emotional Disturbance. At school, Blaize has been labeled a “problem child” from the very beginning, struggled with behavior, and refused to do his school work. With the intent to help Blaize, he had been working with a psychologist, a therapist, and has been through nine different ADHD medications, but none gave him what he really needed. I read an article about the benefits of taekwondo and how it has helped children with ADHD. It was then that i decided to visit Sangrock and see what that program was all about. I was hoping this might work for him, i signed him up. He was so excited.
I want to tell you how thankful i am for what you have done for him as a person. My once unruly, unmanageable child is now well-behaved and respectful. He had a very hard time focusing, concentrating, and had little or no confidence or self-esteem. He always felt criticized and attacked when people would instruct of direct him. Blaize has been involved in Taekwondo for about three monts now and has become EXTREMELY confident, well-behaved, and respectful to others. He now believe that a child can change so much in suck a short period of time. He has learned and continues to learn control, focus, self-confidence and love, not only for others, but also for himself. Blaize is now a very pleasat child to be around. Our struggles have ceased and he is now a willing participant in school and compliant with the reles at school, as well as at home.
I am very proud of my child and very thankful to Master Pesantez and the additional staff and other students who continue to work with Blaize to build his confidence on a daily basis. I can only hope that they realize what a contribution they are making in the lives of the children they mentor.
