Oct. 21, 2019 – Over the weekend, Square Circle New York (“SCNY”) participated in the 10th annual Taste of the Seaport, held at Piers 16 and 17 in the Financial District (“FiDi”) of lower Manhattan. The event featured food offerings from the local restaurants along with many other businesses in the community that focus on sports/fitness, retail and a variety of other sectors. The community event was mainly organized by FiDi Families to benefit the local public schools Peck Slip PS 343 and Spruce Street PS 397.
We participated in the martial arts fitness segment of the community and located in the Kids Zone section of Pier 16. There were live demos for both adults and children along with prize giveaways to launch our Fall Promotions for Adult and Youth student enrollment at the SCNY Training Center. A very good turnout with many of our students and staff on hand, it was a great event with great weather!
As we gear up for the fall, the Taste of the Seaport event was once again a blast! Be sure to check out our Fall Promotions with savings on monthly memberships and trial offers! Great value and savings for new students in our Youth Martial Arts Program and for our Adult Martial Arts Programs! Hope to see you training soon!
