RHKA Afterschool Program
(Kindergarden to Grade 9)
2-3 Days per Week – $50/week (incl tax)
4-5 Days per Week – $75/week (incl tax)
Our afterschool karate program is a great alternative to after school care which sets up your child for future success through the martial art of Karate. The art of Karate help improve discipline, concentration, awareness, self esteem, strength, self-defense and much more.
Students can either be picked up from their school in the Rutland area and driven to the Karate Academy or they can be dropped off after their regular school day. Once at the Academy the students will have a scheduled time for eating their snack before an hour of karate training by Sensei Rodney Hobson (6th degree black belt). Each student will have their own location to keep their gi (karate uniform) at the dojo full-time. During our karate class, your child will learn self-defense, multiple karate techniques, how to defend themselves, kata, and further traditional karate lessons. When the students have changed out of their gi’s after class, and those who’s rides have not yet arrived, are encouraged to read, study karate terminology (Japanese karate words) or start on their homework until they are picked up by their rides. On Fridays the After School Karate class students have discussions on dojo etiquette (acceptable behavior in the karate school), how to deal with bullying, the Dojo Rules (code of behavior for karate students) and karate terminology (Japanese language) followed by a movie. The parent pick up time is between 5:00pm and 5:30pm, but earlier pick up times can be arranged.
If students do not have a snack or homework, we will have karate related activities for them to do for the time scheduled.
