      • Transportation at time of school release from your child’s school to the welcoming and state-of-the-art Asheville Sun Soo facility.
      • Co-Directed by Grandmaster Tony Morris, Master Thabiti Sabahive and Master Season Jacques, all of whom are highly educated with decades of combined, relevant education and experience mentoring children and operating a variety of children’s programs, including Asheville’s now #1 after school program for elementary school kids.
      • Exceptional staff to student ratios.
