The Red Hook campus at 356 Van Brunt St., sits opposite magnet school P.S.15 is a bright, spacious 2,600sf state of the art facility designed with the familiar lived-in-industrial look that Red Hook natives and patrons have come to expect from the tucked away, new england style neighborhood. The Children’s Center will offer toddler activities, their highly successful Children’s Tae Kwon Do after school program, ages 4 to 14 years old. This traditional Korean Karate is a no-contact form of self defense designed to enhance technique, focus and efficiency.
