Childrens Programs

Are YOU Looking to Build a Solid
Foundation of Success for YOUR Child?


If you would like to:

  • Increase your child’s self confidence and self discipline
  • Improve their concentration & focus
  • Improve your child’s level of fitness and health
  • Develop greater respect for themselves & others
  • Improved academic & athletic performance
  • Learn valuable self defense skills

Young Adult students (Ages 7-12 years old) receive physical training and self-defense instruction appropriate for their age. For your younger children, they will have the opportunity to participate with the Little Ninjas, a program designed especially for ages 4 to 6 years old. This program emphasizes respect, discipline, fitness self-control and concentration. From the “Yes, Sir/Yes, Ma’am” to the bow of respect, the children are very attentive to their instructor (at this very influential stage of their lives), all while having fun and earning awards. As a part of their classroom activities, children are awarded recognition and public praise for their accomplishments.

Dear Parents, My son Justin has been with AKKA for a little over 5 years now. We enrolled Justin for two primary reasons – one being physical fitness and the second for the focus and discipline training offered in your program. Health and physical fitness are very important for obvious reasons. The other is more challenging. Justin is a very intelligent child, who has had difficulty socializing with his peers. Because of this, self control was a problem. AKKA has well trained, professional staff that trains their students to understand and practice the traits needed in everyday life – respect, focus, discipline etc. Justin has most definitely benefited from this. He is relaxed, focused and disciplined, now has many friends, and has blended in with his peers nicely. When having a stressful day, he goes to Karate, releases the stress, has fun, and is set to move through the rest of the day. I cannot thank AKKA enough for putting so much time and energy into your program. It shows.

There is a new concern many parents face as public schools continue to downsize and even eliminate physical education programs. Think of your child’s class as an opportunity to have a personal fitness trainer who shares the success skills of maintaining a healthy body. You will see your child’s strength, endurance, and flexibility improve to a level well above acceptable fitness levels. Many of our children have gone onto become great athletes in other sports as well, thanks to their involvement in our program. We have even had some go back to competitive sports, after having improved their physical condition and agility by training in AKKA’s unique program. More importantly though, your child will learn how to keep their body healthy for a lifetime. At AKKA you are assured of the best advantages for YOU and YOUR CHILD!

The AKKA staff has shared many success stories over the years. These are just a few of them.

  • Watching a shy four-year-old become an excited, out-going student
  • Seeing a young boy diagnosed with A.D.D. improve his grades and social skills in school after only short time in class
  • Hearing about the positive, behavioral changes at home of a child who came to us with discipline issues
  • A young girl who was always a good student, but lacked the skills necessary to be socially accepted because she didn’t fit in with the traditional competitive-based programs
  • A young boy who for the first time was able to non-violently stop a school yard bully from bothering him
  • A ten-year-old whose self confidence has improved through the positive, self-paced program we offer.
  • A teen student who has achieved a solid physical and mental foundation, empowering him resist negative influences and to continue on the road to success in his life

Here is what some of our kids have to say…….

Dear Moms and Dads,
My name is Sean Stone and I am 8 years old. I take American Kempo Karate in Hanson. I am learning how to defend myself. I am also learning how to respect others. I’ve made a lot of new friends. I think karate is a fun way to exercise. I would say to anyone wanting to do karate, they should go to AKKA and give it a try.  I LOVE IT!

Dear Parents,
I started karate over two years ago. I was 8 years old. There are some new kids there. I want to be an instructor when I grow up. I want to be a leader when I grow up and teach others karate.; People can run on the bags. Some people need help. My instructors can do it and some kids can do it. On the masters team we can spar and we have instructors training. The first day I was there I was very scared and nervous. I was wondering how many people were there at first. I was excited and very scared at first. I did not know any people there when I was at the karate studio. It was very big then when I got inside but today it seems very small. I look forward to going to karate every day. I am really proud that I do karate and happy to do it. I feel very confident now and no longer shy, I am no longer afraid to be there alone with out my Grandma and Papa, I feel safe there and have met a lot of nice kids and made many new friends and learned a lot from my instructors. My favorite is to go to the tournaments. I get better every day but still have a lot to learn. Kids get so scared when its their first time at karate. You can go to other karate studio’s. Different AKKA karate studios you can do so many different things with another instructor. Doing karate is excellent to do because you can get fit and have and excellent time and earn your colored stripes if you pass the test and new belts after you collected three colored stripes. You don’t always pass the test each month, one time I did not pass so I had to try harder next month, I was happy when I passed the test. Karate is the best thing I have done!

Here is what some of our parents have to say….

Dear Parents,
I would like to compliment the AKKA staff on a job well done. The instructors are very patient with the children which makes for a great learning environment. Everyone has been very supportive and a pleasure to deal with. My son, Matt, is seven years old and has enjoyed his training from day one. He has grown mentally and physically since starting at AKKA.

Michael McQuade Parent

Dear Parents,
My children and I signed up for AKKA martial arts training about 4 years ago. My children were younger and I was feeling pretty old. I was looking for an activity for my son but my two daughters also wanted to give it a try. Not wanting to be left out, and because of the family program offered, I also signed myself up for the training. As a result of the training, my children seem to have a big advantage with their fitness over other kids in their class. They run faster, are stronger, and have more endurance than other kids. They also know what to do in case anyone tries to mess with them. They have a lot of confidence and are proud of their accomplishments. As for me, I am in better shape than I have ever been. I am now feeling 48 years young and look forward to obtaining my black belt at the end of this year. Sure, there has been plenty of hard work involved, but as the saying goes, no pain, no gain. I totally recommend AKKA to other families looking to have a group activity that is healthy, inexpensive (compared to other activities that I pay for) and interesting. My kids have learned a lot of great values during their training including discipline and dedication. I am sure that these characteristics will serve them well for the rest of their lives. One other great thing is that it only takes about two hours a week time investment to achieve great benefits. Overall, AKKA provides a great return for a little bit of effort and gives everyone something to look forward to during the week.
Regards,
Phillip Kirslis Parent and Adult Student
