After School Program
A great option for the extra busy student or parent, our after school program, (K-8), begins as soon as school gets out and wraps up at 5:30. The school bus drops the kids off at the academy where they are offered a light snack prior to the start of our martial arts class. The class incompasses both Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Taekwondo allowing for advancement on both disciplines. Although this class is Mon-Fri, membership allows students to come as often or as little as necessary and only requires payment for days attended.
For ages 4-6 (sometimes even 3yr olds), the Little Dragons class is a preparatory class for our Jiu Jitsu and Taekwondo classes. The children will interact with other children while learning basic self defense techniques to aid them in escaping possible abductions as well as defending themselves against physical confrontations and bullying. Some of the benefits of this class are increased strength, balance and coordination, as well as learning to follow instructions and pay attention. At the age of 7 the little dragons are ready to move on to our youth jiu jitsu and taekwondo classes.

For ages 7-Up. The Korean art of Taekwondo has become one of the most popular martial arts in the world. Its great for children and adults alike.
