Virginia's only martial arts school with Virginia state license program.


Dear Parents:


Welcome to Highkicks After School Martial Arts Program. We are very excited to start another school year and look forward to sharing our program with you and your children. Through the years, both boys and girls, men and women have received many benefits from Tae Kwon Do. We believe that both the mental and physical aspects of learning Martial Arts will help your child condition their mind and body for the challenges that lie ahead - be they related to school or everyday life.

Keep in mind, however, that in striving to achieve such goals, time, patience, and practice will be necessary for positive development. Through learning Tae Kwon Do; discipline, respect, and confidence can only be learned through positive reinforcement. This may seem to be a timely process; however, our goal is to help your child incorporate these fundamentals into their every day life. The confidence level necessary to achieve great things in life comes only from hard work, persistence and the desire to excel. You will see, that as your child learns and perfects more techniques, they will also feel better about themselves and their abilities. This, in turn, will lead to a true sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

Our Instructors and assisting staff will do everything possible to make your child’s experience in the After School Program enjoyable and rewarding. Your child will find that practicing Martial Arts may be hard work at times, but it is also very fun.

Conflict Education Training ,The Martial Arts for Peace Program is taught for a minimum of one half hour. This portion of the program is based on the award winning book and curriculum, “Why Is Everybody Always Picking On Me”, by Dr. Terrence Webster-Doyle. The intent of the program is to help young people to learn how to nonviolently and creatively avoid hostile aggression through role playing. Children will learn to use verbal self-defense skills to diffuse conflict situations before they escalate into physical conflict.
An academic component works well with the Martial Arts for Peace Program.
Scientifically, martial arts trainning will
help children to focus. The brain is oxygenated
and ready to learn. Active children have released

Physically we develop their balance, strength, coordination, and fitness that helps them grow to be strong. Mentall, y we instill in them fundamental values of respect, discipline, positive attitude, and persistence that will help them lead happy and fulfilling lives. Emotionall,y we give them self confidence, self esteem, and a sense of self worth to help them make sound, good decisions wherever they may go or wherever they may be. After much planning and preparation, we are really excited to bring to all our family and to people in our community our After School Martial Arts Program. Our After School program encompasses all that we offer our children in our regular Martial Arts program and so much more. For being with your children two to three hours a week, our regular program offers enormous benefits. With our After School Program, the benefits increase even more and the children learn much faste

 

It has never been more important to give our children the moral and emotional education that they do not receive at school, at extended care, day care, or with a babysitter. We work with you, the parents, to give your children a solid foundation of ethics and good behaviors that
will transform your children and help them to make good decisions for themselves throughout their lives.
Just as important, the children will gain increased awareness of themselves while learning self defense. They will gain the confidence and discipline from the Martial Arts training that will be invaluable to their well being.
