My name is Savan Prak and I am a school counselor. In addition, to my role as a school counselor, I am also the advisor/instructor for the Martial Arts Club. I started my formal martial arts training in 1994 at Pomona High School in the Tae Kwon Do Club during the after school program. Since then, I have trained in various martial arts; karate, kendo, escrima/arnis, and San Soo Kung Fu. I am a proponent of a martial arts program in the school setting because it promotes the development of respect for self and others and helps with meeting the social and emotional needs of our students. The club is open to all students and staff in SUSD, free of charge. We currently meet once a week (Friday) at Weber Instittute from 3pm to 4:30pm in the LCR room(postponed due to COVID-19).
If you have any questions about the club, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
