“The Little Samurai class has been such a great experience for my 5-year-old! Sensei, Williams and all the instructors incorporate structure, respect and discipline in a fun and energetic way while learning basic karate skills. It is so fun to watch them laugh and have a great time while knowing they are being taught life lessons at the same time! My son looks forward to class each week and really looks up to Sensei, Williams and the other instructors!”

Our Teenage Warrior programs are geared specifically to the needs of adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 years old. No longer children, and not quite adults; teenagers are in a unique and often times awkward place in life. With this in mind we have developed a curriculum that is best suited for their needs as they prepare to enter their journey into adulthood.
SKMA Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art in that, it gets someone that has no experience in self-defense, able to defend themselves effectively and efficiently in the shortest time possible. Our program operates on the premise that there are no limiting rules of engagement when it comes to protecting yourself and your loved ones.LEARN MORE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
It is of utmost importance that our students train in a physically and emotionally safe environment. All of our activities are highly supervised by thoroughly trained professional martial arts instructors. So, what that means is our instructors have complete control of the class and each individual student at all times. Students are never asked to perform techniques that would cause them or any other student harm. The instructor to student ratio for our youth programs are typically 1 to 8 and each youth class typically has both a lead instructor and an assistant instructor. Our children’s program is age specific and suitable for children 3 years old and up.
Our instructors are highly experienced, qualified teachers, who are dedicated to bringing out the best in each student. They take pride in their quality of instruction and excellence in the field of martial arts and child development. Their goal is to make a positive impact in the lives of each student by sharing the importance of good physical fitness and a positive “can do anything” attitude toward achieving their goals.
We teach common sense before self-defense. From day one, each of our students are taught the importance of respect, courteous behavior and leadership. We guide each of our students as to when and where their martial arts skills need to be applied. Their skills are only to be used in the rare case that they may have to defend themselves. By using common sense, they are taught to not put themselves in a position to where they would need to defend themselves.
We give them the skills to be confident in all situations, which enables them to maintain discipline, self-control, integrity and do their very best in all they strive to achieve. As students progress on their journey to Black Belt Excellence their confidence grows which makes them less likely to have poor behavior.
Our primary mission is to empower people of all ages and help them to develop their ability to effectively defend themselves and their loved ones against an attack, maintain great levels of physical and mental fitness and develop exceptional strength in their character. Therefore, unlike most martial arts schools we do not have a set monthly price we have various programs suitable for various, yet very specific needs. The value in our program is not simply learning how to defend oneself, it is also the development of one’s character. Typically, the way we get you started is with one of our trial programs to make certain our academy is the right fit for you. Once we have a good understanding of what you are trying to accomplish with a martial arts program, we can then cater our program to meet your specific needs and goals. Please contact us, and one of our program directors will be able to assist you in answering all of your questions and getting registered for your first class.
We offer classes every day of the week except Sunday, most major holidays and in the event of inclement weather. Depending upon the program that is right for you typically determines the number of classes you may attend each week. We have students that train once per week and students that come to classe every day classes are available. We do not assign classes which means you can choose any class at your skill level from week to week that works best for your schedule. By using our age and skill level specific rotating curriculum you will never miss any parts of the curriculum and days that you miss can be made up in the next class. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, there are also specialty classes and workshops that you may attend as well.
We encourage our students by using enormous amounts of positive reinforcement in such a way that it builds confidence and self-esteem. We correct our students in love, pointing out both the positive and negative. We get a clear understanding of their goals and assist them in enjoying the journey to achieving those goals.
We make certain that our students get diversity in their instruction and instructors. Since each instructor has his/her own style the students benefit by virtue of being able to learn something new and different from each instructor. This being an academy dedicated to “Black Belt Excellence” our higher ranked students are very clear in their understanding that one of their roles is to lead and inspire others. There are also several special academy events both in and outside the academy that keep us all connected.
Our students are continuously being evaluated, often times without them knowing. We always take into consideration their ability and capacity to learn to execute each movement and technique. In addition to this, each month we have a specific character development focus as well as a weekly focus that reinforces our message for the month. This allows our students to develop a high sense of respect, discipline, responsibility and self-worth from an early age.
The martial arts can benefit anyone that is seeking to enhance their quality of life. The training you receive at Snap Kick Martial Arts will help you develop increased levels of focus, confidence and discipline. You will become stronger physically and mentally. You will be prepared for whatever the day has in store for you. You will have lots of fun meeting new people and making new friends!
