After School Martial Arts Program

back-view-backpack-bag-207697While most after school programs are nothing more than glorified “babysitting” services, this program provides an immersive environment for children to enrich their lives with physical, behavioral and emotional growth.

  • Physically: Students develop balance, strength, flexibility, coordination, and overall fitness.
  • Mentally: They learn fundamental values of respect, discipline, positive attitude, and persistence. These are qualities that will help them to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
  • Emotionally: They develop confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of self-worth. These traits foster resilience, good leadership and decision making skills.

The ultimate goal of the Martial Arts After School Program is to develop students into strong leaders and contributors at home, at school, among their peers and within their communities



For years, martial arts has been used to not only teach childrenkarate pic65 self-defense… but to give them the tools they need for success in life.

Your child will learn about setting goals – and achieving them. They’ll learn to appreciate respect and show it to others. And their physical condition will improve too. After all, karate is a great work-out for kids.

Your kids will have fun, make friends, and enrich their lives.

My kids have been taking karate classes at Blue Life Karate for many years now and they love the new location at 1882 Springfield Avenue. The space is bright and well-lit with plenty of seating for the parents to watch the karate classes and parking in the back. Master Durand Howard is an excellent karate instructor and make the classes fun for the kids, but also serious enough for them to learn some very useful martial arts skills and life skills such as discipline and focus. I highly recommend Blue Life Karate for both boys and girls. – Thea Kearney
