Screaming Eagles

Give your child a head start in life!

Screaming Eagle Class Schedule:
Kids (Ages 5-8)
Monday - Friday
5:00 - 6:00 p.m.

The Screaming Eagle Program is designed to address the specific development needs of young children.  Belt levels are tailored so students steadily progress in the acquisition of physical skills, physical awareness, and mental focus.  Our Screaming Eagle Program builds confidence and a positive attitude in children for success in  every realm of their life.  Emphasis on discipline will help students become more responsible, which prepare them for challenges of school and life in general.  It is our belief that we can teach your children martial arts in  a caring environment using positive reinforcement and behavior modification techniques.  We emphasize positive behavior while minimizing negative behavior.  Your child will develop a new sense of esteem and pride with a feeling of accomplishment within their own small world.

Classes begin with martial art exercises which reduce the chance of injury.  Next, we review  techniques taught in our previous class.  If everyone feels good about knowing their material, we move on to new material.  The last few minutes of class will be fun and include skill drills to help achieve balance and coordination.  The Screaming Eagle Program is flexible, since all children progress at their own level.  This program can be completed in one to two years, depending on the student's age and maturity.  Once students learn the required material, they will graduate and begin the regular kid's program.

So let's start each day with
THE SPIRIT OF AN EAGLE!

Karate Program Schedule:
Kids & Adults (Ages 9 & up)
Monday - Friday
6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

We teach American Open Karate, which is a blend of traditional and contemporary styles consisting of self-defense techniques, grab arts, fighting techniques (sport), sparring, kickboxing, kata (art form), and ancient weaonry.  We encourage families to train together by offering additional family discounts.  There are three important reasons to learn karate: 

1. Physical Development
The karate student employs all parts of the body in performing the techniques of striking, blocking, kicking, and the kata forms, thus strengthening the internal organs and developing a strong and healthy body.

2. Mental Development
A strong and healthy body promotes the development of a strong and healthy spirit.  Physical well-being engenders a grand feeling of self-confidence and a wholesome outlook on life.  The best can be accomplished in life by the harmonious development of bodily strength and strength of mind.

3. Self-Defense
Being able to defend one’s life or the lives of others is one of the fundamental accomplishments of man.  There is no reason for a man to forfeit his life or the lives of his loved ones through ignorance of how to defend himself.  Karate training will speed up your reflex actions, inspire confidence, and impart scientific knowledge of the principles of  self-defense.  Self-knowledge is necessary in karate-do and is all important in overcoming the battles of life.  To win life’s battles, one must first overcome himself.  Without self-knowledge, you will arrive at  frustration.  With self-knowledge, you will learn to understand and value others.  The true master of karate-do has a sense of propriety and humility which will lead him to his own sense of honor.

After School Program

Maximize Your Child's Potential!

SideKick After School Schedule:
Kindergarten & up
Monday - Friday
2:30 - 6:15 p.m.

This is not a daycare or babysitting service!

We are a martial arts school!
Our program is first and foremost about quality martial arts instruction, health and physical fitness.  Children participating in this program will practice martial arts daily.
This program has been designed to assist parents with the tough job of giving your child the tools and skills needed to overcome their daily obstacles...whether it is getting bullied at school, a lack of focus on school work, discipline issues, or a need for more confidence.
SideKick Karate's After School Program will help your child become a confident leader!
When you pick your child up from our facility, their snack, homework, and karate lessons are already DONE!  We even laundry their uniform so that you can focus on quality family time.
Children are picked up daily at their school in an easily identified (federally approved) SideKick Karate Bus and transported to our facility.  Snacks will be served upon arrival at SideKick Karate Dojo.  There will be a dedicated time for completion of their homework with assistance.  Each child will participate in a daily confidence-building martial art class with emphasis on Respect, Discipline, and Focus.  If homework and karate are completed, there will be downtime with games, reading, or electronic devices (depending on parent's preference).  Parents pick up their children upon completion of their own work day.
Within weeks the improvements in your child will become obvious.  They will have the confidence to say NO to peer pressure.  They will become more focused on school work and begin to feel better about themselves.
Our professional staff of black belts and event directors (certified in CPR/first aid) will provide leadership and assist with your child's development.  All staff members must pass a background check and are subject to random drug testing.
