Inside Martial Arts Fitness
Martial Arts Fitness(MAF) is a blend of multiple martial arts disciplines with modern fitness philosophies that evolve together into a new and dynamic Physical Education curriculum and fitness activity.
For over a decade, State College Area School District, State College, PA, has been offering a martial arts curriculum to their 11th and 12th grade students. The curriculum continued to receive great feedback and interest from students, parents, and faculty which allowed it to remain a staple in the physical education program for several years.
In the fall of 2011 the martial arts program began a revision period with the intention to expand and modernize the curriculum. The revision was also inspired in order to make the program curriculum appropriate for students between the 4th and 12th grade.
The revisions have carefully been made and the new martial arts program at State College Senior High began in the fall of 2013. The program has taken on the name “Martial Arts Fitness”.
Martial Arts Fitness creator and Professional MMA Coach, Bruce Lombard, and Physical Education teachers and MAF consultants, Danielle Kurzinger and Jess Cole, are now hoping to provide the opportunity for other physical educations departments and teachers to include this new and dynamic martial arts fitness curriculum in their school and classroom.
Martial Arts Fitness is also available to be incorporated in after school programs, home school environments, and private or public fitness facilities.
