A Great Alternative to Daycare and Babysitting
We pick up our students from school and bring them to the dojo (training hall) for a fun filled afternoon of martial arts.
Our after school martial arts program teaches your child to:
- Show courtesy and respect
- Be a positive role model
- Excel in school and sports
- Increase physical endurance
- Improve mental awareness
- Exhibit perseverance and pride
- Set and achieve goals
- Achieve self mastery
Your child is also given time for a snack (prepared at home), free time for socializing and homework completion as well as agenda checking, supervised by our staff of qualified assistants. Our after school program personnel have all been personally selected by Shihan Grant Campbell and are also long term members of our dojo with years of experience. We are not a daycare facility. Homework & Games are secondary to our program. We are a professional martial arts facility and our focus is on the instruction of the Martial Arts.
We pick up from all schools in our area in our fully marked, properly insured vehicles. We have purchased our own fleet of buses and vans to ensure that we know who is driving your child and we also know that all our vehicles are safe and properly insured and maintained. All staff, including drivers, are CPR and first aid certified, have police and driver abstracts and have an interest in the safety and progression of your child.
What makes our after school martial arts program so successful? We keep it small by capping the amount of children we take each year. We have adult certified instructors running the program and we keep our ratio of instructors to students very low and we focus strictly on martial arts. We are not a daycare, nor are we a dance studio. We have a waiting list each year. We could take on hundreds of new students each year, but the quality of martial arts and the safety of your child would suffer.
All regular belt testing up to Brown Belt as well as use of any gear needed is included in our program making it an all inclusive program. Each child is given their own uniform, to make them feel part of the team. This is also their first lesson in responsibility. Sufficient space is provided for them to keep their jackets, backpacks and shoes.
There are two amazing benefits from our after school martial arts program. The first one is that our martial arts program will develop and enhance:
- Balance & Coordination
- Physical Fitness
Your child's grades will improve, their attention span and focus in the classroom will increase and their self esteem and confidence will soar. You will notice an improvement in all these areas in a few short weeks.
The second benefit is the time that our program will create for you and your family. Most families rush home, rush to eat dinner, rush to get the homework done and then rush to get out to their evening activities. With our program, most of these things are already done by the time you pick them up, thereby creating more quality evening time for you and your family.
Make sure that your child is doing something productive after school. Would you rather have them at home watching television and playing video games or picked up by us and improving their lives?
