January 2023 Black Belt Excellence Topic – Nutrition


Here is some alarming information: 15% of 6-19 year old children and teens are overweight! More than 84% of children and adolescents eat to much total fat and more than 91% eat too much saturated fat. 51% of children eat less than 1 serving of fruit per day. A child’s bad diet and exercise habits are linked to 17 chronic diseases. 40% of children 5 to 8 years old show at least one sign of heart disease risk. About 10% of adolescents age 12 to 19 have high cholesterol levels. Childhood obesity has increased 36% in the past 20 years. One of the main problems in children’s nutrition habits are their lack of eating fruits and vegetables. Children are replacing fruits and vegetables with high fat foods. One way of combating this problem is with a focused effort for you to eat a combination of five fruits and vegetables per day. Eating 5 or more servings of colorful fruit and vegetables a day is part of an important plan of healthier living. Thats because fruits and vegetables provide the wide range of vitamins, minerals, fiber, needed to maintain good health and energy levels and protect us from disease.

Our curriculum focuses on character development far beyond the importance of self-defense.

We empower our adult students with the self-confidence to overcome anxieties and trauma, in an environment that fosters inclusion and social belonging.
