Want something better than daycare or babysitting?
If you’re looking for after-school programs in Brooklyn, Urban Martial Arts can provide your children with something more worthwhile than day care. Our Taekwondo-after school program includes free transportation from 11 different schools in our area. Students receive daily Martial Arts and character development lessons and work towards their goal of earning a black belt. Each day’s schedule also includes a large block of free time during which students can do homework and have a snack.
We help children reach their peak potential in life
Our after-school kids’ program is unique in that we combine both a world-class martial arts curriculum and a world-class character development curriculum. Because of the in-depth martial arts training our students receive in Leesburg, they regularly take top rankings at regional and national Taekwondo tournaments.
Martial arts isn’t just about physical skills.
We believe that martial arts is also about developing character. That’s why we’ve created an outstanding character development curriculum for our students. In order to move through our belt rank system, students have to meet requirements for both the physical and the character portions of our curriculum.
Benefits of a good after-school program
Improve kids’ school attendance and test scores Did you know that a good after-school program can improve kids’ school attendance and test scores? Numerous research studies have demonstrated that students enrolled in after-school programs get better grades and miss fewer days of school than students not enrolled in after-school programs. Brooklyn children are often more excited about going to school in the morning when they know they’re coming to us at the end of the day!
Keep children out of trouble and on track for success AfterSchool Alliance reports that kids who don’t spend time in an after-school program are 49% more likely to have done drugs and 37% more likely to become a teen parent. It’s important to make sure your children are accounted for so that they aren’t unsupervised on the streets. After-school programs can help keep kids out of trouble by keeping them engaged with constructive activities while not in school.
Help kids develop better interpersonal skills Children who participate in after-school programs have better social skills and improved self-confidence, according to the U.S. Department of Education. In this way, after-school programs set up children for success later on in life by developing the interpersonal skills they need to thrive in the workplace.
Combat childhood obesity by keeping kids active The journal Applied Developmental Science found in a study that elementary school students enrolled in an after-school program were less likely to be obese and more likely to be accepted by their peers. Since many after-school programs incorporate fitness and sports, they can help keep kids active. Learning and practicing martial arts after school is a great way for your child to keep fit and healthy.
Prevent kids from becoming victims of violence
According to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, juveniles are at most risk of becoming victim of a violent crime during after-school hours — between 2 pm and 6 pm. By keeping kids off the streets during this critical window of time, after-school programs can help keep children safe.

“I am so happy and relieved about this great program that I found for my 9 year old son. I was looking for an after-school program that fit our needs close to school and where pick up was available. One of the greatest things about the program is that there is a great physical skill being taught. Like all children, my son really needs this especially after being at school all day. He has made great friends, he is always happy and content when I pick him up. Sensei KIM is a great instructor. We hope to enjoy this program for years to come.” ~Jill H, Leeburg VA
