After School

A REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUTH OF ALL AGES

Through martial arts, your child grows both mentally and physically. Being active in a structured setting multiple times per week builds attention, discipline, and physical fitness. Kids gain all-around improvement by simply having fun and making new lifetime friends.

BULLYING AND OBESITY PREVENTION

Two of the biggest problems facing kids today are obesity and bullying, and Martial Arts can be the answer to both of these problems. Your son or daughter will get the physical fitness he or she needs as well as the knowledge and confidence to deal with bullying appropriately and respectfully.

LESSONS FOR A LIFETIME

At Greenville Martial Arts Center, your child will learn life lessons that will stay with him or her forever. He or she will gain physical fitness, mental focus, self discipline, confidence, and leadership skills.

Our parents consistently report improved behavior at home, better grades at school, and a new sense of confidence in all that their kids do. It’s not just about Martial Arts; it’s about becoming the best they can be in every aspect of life.

AGES 4-6: LITTLE TIGERS

Our Little Tigers classes are designed for kids ages 4-6 years old. Kids at this age need special attention and instruction to learn Martial Arts as effectively as possible. These classes teach kids the basics and fundamentals they need in a fun and exciting environment. As a parent, you know a fun environment makes learning a lot easier for kids. Our amazing instructors keep the classes fun and do so without compromising the instruction.

One of the first things our Little Tigers learn is the Five Tenets of Taekwon-Do:

  • Courtesy
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Self Control
  • Indomitable Spirit
AGES K5 AND UP: AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

As parents ourselves we understand how precious your kids are to you. When your child is picked up from school, you want to have the assurance that they are safe, completing homework, learning, and having a good time. Our goal at Greenville Martial Arts Center is to not only offer your child a safe and fun environment but also watch them grow into confident leaders. Each day after school, your child will:

  • Be picked up from school
  • Be safely transported to our facility
  • Complete homework
  • Have a nutritious snack
  • Participate in one martial arts class (approx. 3:30pm to 4:30pm)

Older kids are provided the opportunity to build leadership skills as they assist in teaching and modeling behavior for our younger kids. Our after school program runs until 6pm.
