5 Unique Summer Activities for Kids

Check out these out-of-the-box summer activities for your kids to keep them active, healthy and having fun!

Quit or Commit?

Children don’t often have the foresight to see ahead of their consequences – quitting or committing. It’s our duty as parents to help them see this future and to offer them healthy options for them to make their own decisions. Learn how you can teach this valuable lesson to your children.

Why Taekwondo: Taekwondo is not all about kicking and punching. I think of Taekwondo on more of the values that are taught here at Farrell’s such as self-discipline for your own actions, respect to everyone that you see and the perseverance one takes through practice of Martial Arts which is why I am blessed to be a part of something so special!

Master Bishop has lived in Des Moines, IA his whole life and couldn’t be in a happier place. His family put him in Farrell’s when he was just seven years old back in August of 1998 and he is very thankful of his mother and grandmother for putting him in something that he truly loves to do every day! Being a part of my students’ lives six days a week makes every day unique and also challenging for me but couldn’t be any happier anywhere else! In Master Bishop’s spare time, he loves to teach cardio kickboxing classes also located at Farrell’s, going to the gym as often as he can, going disc golfing and also loves weather, especially thunderstorms!
