Martial Arts is not just a method of self defense, but a way of living. It will benefit into everyday life. Our carefully designed program for children of all ages will improve your child’s performance in other sports, as well as, improving study habits and increasing overall concentration.

We are proud to announce that we have after school programs in all 9 public elementary schools in Carlsbad and 1 school in San Marcos. Our programs are free or reduced priced to remain affordable at all schools because we believe that every child should have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of Martial Arts. All students enrolled in our after school classes are also allowed to attend classes on Saturdays for FREE at the Martial Arts International dojo. This beginner karate class both at school and the dojo teaches kids how posture, focus, and self discipline can be applied to everything in life and will help them become successful. Students also learn valuable self defense skills. Each session of our after school programs culminates in a promotional belt test where the students receive their Orange/White belts upon passing their test. The test also includes a free uniform and a sponsorship transfer rate! This is a very exciting day for the students, where the whole family can enjoy the karate demonstration by our Demo Team and refreshments (cookies, water, coffee) will be served.

Project HERO is strongly involved in the support of after school programs. In many states, extra-curricular activities in public schools have been affected by education budget cuts. Project HERO seeks to fill the void, putting crucial character development programs and role models back in front of students grades K-12.
