All new enrollments must take a trial class prior to registration.
All students must provide a new Health & Medical form each year.
Each student attends a daily taekwondo class under World Taekwondo certified master instructors, which develops self-defense, self-efficacy, confidence, strength, speed, balance, flexibility, respect, concentration, and a lot more. Mt. Kim Martial Arts Burke creates a safe studio environment where students exercise on clean, Olympic-quality matted floors.
Our programs engage students in many other activities as well, such as indoor games, crafts, and team building exercises with supervised care. It is not just a day care center – students will have had a very productive afternoon by the time you are ready to pick them up! Enroll now and experience all the benefits of Martial Arts training with our After School Program!
We offer multiple options to tailor your membership to your family’s needs. Students can take part in our program Full Time (5-4 days of attendance) or opt for Part Time (3 or fewer days) membership for a slight discount. Members also have the option of adding on Before School Drop-Off for parents who need to get to work early.
Before School Drop-Off time starts at 7:00 am. Simply check your child(ren) in at the front desk to drop off at our martial arts studio and we will make sure to get them ready for the day and get them to school on time. We take care of everything for you! (Before School Drop-Off is only available as an add-on amenity to After School members, not as a stand-alone membership option.)
We also pick up our students from their schools and transport them to our studio whenever the schools are dismissed, including half-days and early dismissals. Once they arrive at our facility, parents can contact a designated text line to let their children know to get ready ahead of time so you can pick them up as soon as you arrive. Parents’ Pick-Up time runs until 6:30 pm.
Monday – Thursday, we offer taekwondo class with Fridays reserved for belt testing. When a student learns a required skill for their belt level, they will receive a colored tape tip on their belt. Once they earn all their tips, they will be eligible to test for their next belt level and receive a test form that must be signed by a parent/guardian and their teacher to verify they are living taekwondo values outside of the studio. Belt promotion is not guaranteed by attendance so that students can learn to apply themselves, present good character values, follow instruction, and master their curriculum. We encourage students to practice outside of class.
Students will be encouraged to finish their school work and read every day before and after taekwondo class time. Students will be encouraged to improve their reading comprehension and STEM skills as well as to finish their school assignments. Every student is given the opportunity to take part in games that teach teamwork, focus, and coordination while encouraging friendship and physical fitness. Students will also have snack time, play board games, and make arts & crafts under the supervision of our certified staff.
Mt. Kim Martial Arts Burke provides day camps to accommodate teacher workdays, student holidays, and other closures throughout the school year. We provide a safe, secure, and fun environment to support the needs of both parent and child. Students have opportunities to learn other martial arts (such as hapkido or nunchucks), go on field trips, and take part in fun themed activities at our exciting day camps.
