After School can be a challenge…

- Do you see discipline issues in your children that worry you a bit?
- Will they spend too much time on video games?

After School Program at Macon’s Martial Arts
We use Martial Arts to help your child realize their full potential. Our after school program includes:
Daily Life Skill Lessons
Your children will have an increased attention span, improved behavior, and greater self-control. They learn more than how to kick, block and punch.
Structured Social Time
Your child will have structured social time with all our students.
Be a Confident Leader
Kids that come from martial arts backgrounds stand their ground against challenges in life and against bullies. This isn’t just because of the physical skills they have learned, but the mental skills as well.
Benefits of Martial Arts Training
Martial arts training for kids begins with them doing one specific thing at a time. They focus on their specific stance or a kick. It might only be for 30 seconds to start off with, but with training, they start focusing longer. This is great for younger kids and kids with ADD. They will soon apply these skills to homework, family conversations, and life.
Determination to Succeed
Personal goal setting and achievement is essential in martial arts training. Earning the first belt, or perfecting a series of moves gives a sense of fulfillment as challenges are completed. This leads to more ambitious goal setting and further challenges. As they grow older, they take these principles and discipline with them in life.
If your kid has a short attention span, or seems to drift off mid-conversation you might see some improvement after Martial Arts training at Macon’s Martial Arts. We believe eye contact is vital when it comes to talking both inside and outside the classroom. After only a short while, kids will start to do this naturally even at home.
Less Answering Back
One of our fundamental training rules involves discipline. When we ask someone to do something, we expect it to be done. No discussion, no debate. We don’t need to yell at them if they don’t – they do it because they see the other kids doing it. It won’t be long until your kids start doing this at home. If you think your kids have a hard time following directions, then sign them up for a few classes. You will be amazed at the difference.
