kids after school program


Each day consists of going to work, picking the kids up from daycare and getting dinner ready fast enough to run right back out the door for evening activities. Not to mention that the kids' homework still needs to be completed. Unfortunately, all this rushing around doesn't leave much room for family time.

Our martial arts classes take your child’s natural disposition into account. Instead of working to "fix" them (to change who they are), we work WITH their natural physical and emotional energy, enhancing their strengths and working to shore up their weaknesses. Now, of course kids need rules, boundaries and limitations. We enforce these necessities with kind, assertive leadership exercised in a fun, high-energy environment, so that kids are excited to be there. 

If we want children to be compassionate, polite, patient and calm, we have to set the example by treating them that way!

Our After School Program at ATA Martial Arts of Maryland is the answer!

ATA Martial Arts of Maryland's After school program CLASSES EMPOWER STUDENTS BY:

Develop Goal Setting Skills

Positive Mental Attitude

Healthy Fitness Habits

WE BRING OUT Your child's BEST

Yes, we have rules (and they’re important). Our classes are far from your average run-around-screaming, coach-pulling-his-hair-out, free-for-all kid’s activity. You’ll immediately see your child enveloped in a culture of excellence, a place where we expect the best out of our students. This actually makes it EASIER for your child to reach the kind of goals we all want.

When they step onto the mat they’ll be surrounded by other children who are on the same path of excellence, and that’s more helpful than you can imagine.


A high-energy, exciting after school program where your child will pay attention, follow the rules and try their best? Sounds too good to be true, I know. Think about it … a kid’s “natural” state is seeking out fun, so if we get them to that state, it becomes EASY to instill life-changing character development skills that they'll take off of the mat and apply to the rest of their lives.

They’ll become more focused, confident, and disciplined, and they’ll love every second of it.

Increased Confidence

Increased Confidence

Confidence, especially in our martial arts classes, is the difference between what a child can actually do vs. what they think they can do. You’ll see them grow more and more confident, and confront new challenges both inside and outside of our school with a sense of drive and purpose.

Strength: Mentally, Emotionally & Physically

Strength: Mentally, Emotionally & Physically

If they ever need it, your child will absolutely be able to defend themselves physically. But far more importantly, they’ll be able to fend off the mental onslaught of peer pressure and the emotional weight of bullying and unkind behavior. These are things they’ll desperately need as they grow older.

Soaring Self-Esteem

Soaring Self-Esteem

The most important thing your child will get in our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. They’ll be able to objectively recognize things they need to improve (homework, family interaction, physical effort) without feeling hopeless, and they’ll take pride in the things they get right without discounting or minimizing their achievements. This will be invaluable for them as adults.

An Appreciation for Exercise

An Appreciation for Exercise

If you want kids to stay healthy, they have to enjoy their exercise. Our classes are so much fun, your child will beg to come. They’ll actually love doing pushups, jumping jacks and crunches. They’ll take pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they’ll leave class everyday sweating and smiling.

We started our 3 kids and ourselves about 3 months ago, each for their own distinct reason. I have watched my kids grow in confidence and self control in that short amount of time, and know that it will continue. The Franks and their staff are wonderful instructors and people, reaching everyone in their own space. We have grown into this community, and I foresee us remaining part of it for years to come. The kids are participating in their first tournament today, of their own insistence. For one, her confidence was shaky at best when she started at ATA. Today she is excited, and prepared. The ATA team should be proud of their ability to reach and guide their students.

Great program for all ages! My three children attend and I have seen such a transition in their confidence and academics. They provide a positive yet structured  approach when training and it really works! My children are motivated and excited to go to class each day they train. They look forward to earning their next belt and enjoy the challenges set forth by the instructors. The afterschool program has been great for my two younger children. I know they are in a safe and caring environment that also sets expectations for them to complete their homework. I’m so thankful to have found such a great program!
