The Martial Arts can really help to arm your child with a host of positive mental and physical skills that will help them in school, at home and in life.

The Martial Arts will improve your child's grades
Our unique children's program offers a lot more than just self defense and physical fitness. Our educational martial arts program and unique achievement program will teach your child history, geography, safety, and much more. But the best part of all is that The Martial Arts will give your child the discipline to study. This leads to increased concentration at school which pays off in the form of better grades.

The Martial Arts promote leadership skills in children to help them succeed in life.
Our programs will teach your child about setting goals, leadership, and taking responsibility. These qualities more than any others will help your child ensure their success in school, college, and life.

The martial arts will also help your child develop physically. Our programs increase speed, stamina, and strength in children. The program also develops balance, coordination, and timing. This will help in other sports and activities.

Your child will enjoy the Martial Arts because our high energy classes are full of excitement and fun!
Perhaps the best part of our program, from the children's' point of view is how much fun the classes really are. Our high energy classes will focus your child's energy in a positive and productive manner.
The Martial Arts teach children self defense skills that could save their life.
While we wish it were not even a factor in our program, the fact remains that we live in a world full of undesirable people. The Martial Arts will teach your child how to protect themselves from danger. This invaluable skill may even save their life.

Martial Art training at our school will provide your child with personal attention not found in other schools to ensure rapid progress.
We focus on quality instruction and personal attention to our students. All our classes are taught by highly trained instructors committed to excellence and continued learning. When you enroll your children in the Martial Arts you can feel safe in the knowledge that they will be receiving the finest instruction available.

The Martial Arts develop your child mentally
Perhaps the scariest problem facing many parents today is the thought that their child might get involved with drugs. The number of "good kids" taking drugs at a younger and younger age is staggering. We help promote antidrug programs. On top of this, our programs are designed to promote self confidence and self esteem which gives your child the courage to say NO in the face of peer pressure. Recent studies have shown that programs that focus on personal achievement such as Martial Arts are vastly more effective in this area than team sports.

Karate After School

223 Cooper Lane Unit A

Easley, SC 29642


As part of our Karate after school program. We focus on education by communicating with Principals and teachers in our local schools. Self Defense America requires a B average of our students to graduate to the next belt level.
We realize that all students won't carry a B average all the time. So constant communication with teachers, parents and Karate instructors keeps students motivated to bring those grades up.
Remember we are not a daycare!
We require strict discipline in our Martial Arts School. Students have certain responsibilities that are theirs alone.
Example; Clean uniforms, homework agenda, B average, Respect, by saying Yes Sir and yes Mamm, Proper behavior
Students violating these basic rules will be subject to Corrective encouragement such as push-ups, jumping Jacks, running laps, etc, etc.
