Fitness: Fusion Tae Kwon Do

By

So long Snyder's. Hello Fusion. A Colchester tae kwon do studio is under new ownership. Damir Alisa and Leslie St. Pierre — both former Snyder's teachers — bought the place from their former employer. They've given it a makeover and diversified their offerings, an approach that aims at blending mind, body and spirit. There are new yoga and conditioning classes, for example. But tae kwon do is still the main attraction — family sessions and others geared for a range of ages, from kids to adult. Alisa and St Pierre want to be more than just a martial-arts school — they'd like to create a welcoming atmosphere that develops students of all ages into good citizens. Meanwhile, Snyder's is still operating in St. Albans.
