After School Program

Share This Post

After the business of school and work comes to a finish, the day does not have to come to a close. The evening is just getting started, which means the start of evening martial arts for kids!

Not only do evening classes save parents from potentially having to leave work early to pick up their children from school, but children are also able to spend their evenings doing something fun and educational. In this blog, we will uncover why families love after-school karate classes, and why you should consider enrolling today.

5 Reasons Children Love Evening Classes

1. Introduce a Break from Routine

Many families have a traditional after-school routine that can become predictable and mundane. With the introduction of after-school programs, your children will be reinvigorated, even after a long day of school. Karate classes for kids are activities they will look forward to all day and be excited to attend during the evenings. It’s a time when they can engage in activities at their own pace, have fun, make new friends, and unwind from school.

2. Engage Kids in Fun Activities

Transport your children into their favorite action movies by enrolling them in kids’ karate classes. These classes allow them to live out action scenes and become real-life ninja warriors! From tackling obstacle courses to performing flying kicks, your children will be engaged in the excitement of activities and education.

The best part? They will be surrounded by like-minded peers and supported by experienced instructors in a safe space.

3. The Joy of Socializing

After-school classes are a great opportunity for children to socialize. They get to meet and interact with peers who share their interests and are outside of their usual school circle. While some children are not as confident in social settings, the comfortability and support of after-school activities will allow them to improve their self-confidence. We encourage teamwork by planning group activities; this offers every child the opportunity to form new friendships and strengthen their social skills.

4. Sense of Accomplishment

Participating in activities like karate classes for kids gives children the opportunity to feel a sense of accomplishment. Whether it’s learning a new Taekwondo technique, earning a new belt, or completing our exclusive obstacle course in record time, children will discover the excitement of achievement. Not only will this boost their self-esteem, but it will also positively impact attributes of their everyday life.

5. Give the Room for Children to Discover Themselves

Children can only learn so much about themselves and what interests them in a structured environment, such as school. It is important to give your children room to discover what they enjoy, what drives them, and how they want to spend their time. Evening martial arts programs encourage children to be themselves, teach them how to manage their independence and help them discover their interests.

Why Martial Arts for Kids is a Go-To Evening Activity

Our kids’ karate classes are sought after by many families for a variety of reasons. For parents, evening programs reinforce important values in their children, such as respect and discipline.

For the kids, our evening programs are the perfect place to socialize with peers, work towards a goal – whether it be the next Taekwondo belt or a new skill – and be given the time and space to work on their homework.
