I love Cornerstone! The changes that I have seen in my son are wonderful. I’m also taking classes myself and have found personal zen. It’s a family environment. Tang Soo!

This is the BEST Martial Arts School ! I've have my three children and I have to say it was the best decision I could make for them. It helped my children significantly gain confidence, self independence, and self esteem. The loving environment, the organization, and the teacher instruction are what I believe to be the key success of Cornerstone and Martial Arts.

It’s Top Notch.
The effort put into each class to teach not only the craft itself but the wisdom through words surrounding it, is impeccable. The care and thoughtfulness put forth to help the students understand Tang Soo Do and it’s applicability to life is quite beautiful to say the least.
I am impressed with the organization, layout, and cleanliness of the facility as well.
I couldn’t be happier with the decision of choosing this school for my Son.
I am looking forward to seeing his growth along with all the other students.
Well done Mr. Dulaney, Sir, well done.

This place is awesome! Great big facility and clean. Bu Sabom Dulaney is good with the kids and they really look forward to coming. If you want your kids to do something outside of the normal sports, Karate here would be an excellent choice.

I’ve got experience in other martial arts, but Cornerstone takes their training to the next level. Cornerstone is a very close-knit, family friendly environment and I highly recommend this academy to everyone.

5 Tips for Staying Safe on Halloween

5 Tips for Staying Safe on Halloween

 

Halloween is such a fun time of the year for children; but when children

encounter tricks instead of treats, this holiday can become very scary –

and not just because of the decorations and frightening costumes.

Abductions, bullying, candy that has been compromised; these are all

things that can make Halloween a dreadful holiday for children and

parents alike.

 

In order to keep your kids safe this Halloween, educate them before

they put on their costumes and start knocking on the neighbors doors.

 

Here are 5 tips that can help keep those little ghosts and ghouls safe

this – and every – Halloween.

 

Tip #1: Plan a Route

 

Before your kids hit the town to gather goodies, plan a route for them.

It should be one that leads them through well-lit areas that are heavily

populated. The lighter the area and the more people around, the less likely

there will danger lurking. Make sure to discuss the route with your kids

beforehand.

 

Tip #2: Give them a Cell Phone

 

You may not want your kids to have a cell phone on a regular basis, but

on Halloween, you might want to make an exception. Pre-program the

phone with emergency contact numbers so that if there is an emergency

your child will be able to easily call for help. Also, it will allow you to call

and check up on your child at regular intervals. They’ll have the freedom

to trick-or-treat by themselves, but you’ll still be able to keep a watchful

eye, or ear, on them.

 

Tip #3: Talk to Your Child About Potential Dangers

 

Discuss possible scenarios that could occur that would be dangerous.

For example, what they should do if someone tries to ask them to get

into their car, or go into their house. Provide them with the right response

so that they know how to react and so that they can avoid a potentially

dangerous situation.

 

Tip #4: Light them Up

 

Give you children flashlights or have them wear glow bracelets or necklaces

while they are trick-or-treating. Doing so will allow them to not only see

what is around them, but will allow others to easily see them.

Cars can be a particular danger while walking on dark streets; lighting up

your kids will make them more visible to drivers.

 

Tip #5: Don’t Eat Candy!

 

Of course, children are going to find it difficult to keep their goodies out

of their mouths; however, you really need to stress the importance of

waiting until they get home to eat their candy. Once they get home, you

can inspect them to make sure they are safe. Spread the candy out and

go through it together. Remove anything that is unwrapped or looks

questionable. And while homemade treats may seem like a nice gesture,

there is no telling what is inside of them, so nix them.

 

Your kids can have fun while being independent this Halloween. By

following these 5 tips, you can ensure that they have plenty of treats

and avoid any tricks.
