Academy of Martial Arts

The Academy of Martial Arts has teamed up with Action Academy to develop a program with the expectation of providing families in the community with a convenient way to maximize the potential of our children. We go beyond just teaching martial arts to develop the mind, body and spirit of each individual child.


We felt there was a need for this program as the number of latchkey children in the community is a growing concern. A latchkey child is a child aged twelve or under that spends time at home unsupervised. These few hours after school before a parent arrives home from work are very important. Children left unsupervised can engage in undesirable or unproductive behaviors.

Our program offers FREE transportation directly from certain schools in the community to the Academy. Upon arrival, the children will prepare for a class of their choice. After the class, children will have free time to play and have the opportunity to socialize while they have their snacks.

The Action Academy After School Club offers several options for students each day.  We currently offer classes in martial arts (both TaeKwonDo and American Kenpo), Zumba for Kids, fitness classes, Korean weapons, supervised homework time with licensed teachers, and more.

 

Martial Arts

Martial arts classes will follow a progressive curriculum that includes practical lesson plans for anti-bullying strategies and the prevalent dangers of today's society. The curriculum is established to be easily applied to real life situations. Our focus is to instill confidence, self-esteem and leadership qualities. Martial art classes are divided by three age groups (4-5, 6-7, and 8-12) so that we can focus on the developmental needs of the children.
