Halloween Safety Tips

We’re pretty sure your children are probably still deciding what they want to dress up for Halloween. While they continue to be indecisive until the last minute and decide to go with their first choice after all, you don’t need to be indecisive on sharing with them safety tips for trick or treating.

Preparing For Sick Season

Fall means outdoor allergies, colds and the beginning of flu season. It also doesn’t help that kids are back in school spreading their germs in the classroom, on the playground and on the buses. Check out these tips to help get you through the sick season!

Surviving the Schedule Overload

Now that school is back in session and the holidays are around the corner, you’re probably feeling the pressure of supporting every school booster, fundraiser and volunteer opportunity for your child. Have no fear! We’ve got tips for how you can get through the school year and actually add value, not stress, to your child’s school, their experience, and your sanity. (Spoiler alert: you can’t do everything)!

Why Taekwondo: Taekwondo is not all about kicking and punching. I think of Taekwondo on more of the values that are taught here at Farrell’s such as self-discipline for your own actions, respect to everyone that you see and the perseverance one takes through practice of Martial Arts which is why I am blessed to be a part of something so special!

Master Bishop has lived in Des Moines, IA his whole life and couldn’t be in a happier place. His family put him in Farrell’s when he was just seven years old back in August of 1998 and he is very thankful of his mother and grandmother for putting him in something that he truly loves to do every day! Being a part of my students’ lives six days a week makes every day unique and also challenging for me but couldn’t be any happier anywhere else! In Master Bishop’s spare time, he loves to teach cardio kickboxing classes also located at Farrell’s, going to the gym as often as he can, going disc golfing and also loves weather, especially thunderstorms!
