After School Program
In the hectic environment and insanity of today, we understand the need to protect our kids and we empathize with the busy schedules of today. To answer this need, we have created a new class with an earlier time slot and a reduced price to go along with our Aerial Circus Arts Class. Class times are Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30pm to 4:15pm (Check schedule to verify times), followed by the Circus Arts Class at 4:30pm to 5:15pm; that's an hour and a half of fitness, discipline and fun. Keep in mind that this class is only available during the normal school year. This class is also available to homeschooled kids, however we do not offer any transportation services so you will need to have someone drop your child off.
Classes begin August 14th. Space is limited, sign up now to save your child's spot.

Like our Jr. Dragons program, our After school program is based on the principles of Jeet Kune Do, developed by Bruce Lee. The class is specifically designed for ages 6 to 14 years. Some of the philosophies of Jeet Kune Do are simplicity, directness and economy of motion such that the students learn to “carve away” the inessentials when moving their bodies. Everything the student is taught falls under these criteria so that the martial art the student is learning will be efficient and useful. The students then are given the opportunity to apply their martial arts in the form of closely supervised sparring. In this manner they see that they are actually learning to fight rather than just learning “forms.”
Positive behavior and skill development are rewarded with patches and colored belts. This is a Junior Black Belt program, though kids in this program have the choice of opting out of testing. If a student opts out of testing, no belts, patches or certification of rank are awarded though a student may still progress through the material.
Our instructors focus on teaching leadership qualities that can help your child to be successful in life. Kids learn to show respect for their teachers, other students and themselves. They also learn good sportsmanship and proper body mechanics. Your child will gain internal and external strength, confidence and flexibility. All of these lessons can enrich your child's life by teaching them how to express themselves fully not just in martial arts, but in every aspect of their lives.
There is simply no other academy emphasizing the concepts, philosophies and principles that we teach. Your child will not just become a martial artist; they will be an artist of life. Learning the art of Jeet Kune Do will liberate your child's way of thinking, which will strengthen their self-respect and improve their self-esteem.
God Bless You.
