The 5th Dimension Institute & Creative Connections
5th Dimension Institute

For almost two decades, we have donated our time and expertise to both public and private schools, as well as community groups such as boy and girl scouts. All of our enrichment services creatively connect the martial arts to everything from character development, to leadership skills, to bully prevention and personal safety. Take a look at where we've been lately, and check the sidebar for details about our variety of customizable outreach programs.
