After School Karate Program

For the 2012/2013 School Yr.

Press Release:

Side Kicks Family Karate of Rome NY offers an alternative to traditional after school care. ASK, or After School Karate, is a transported after school program for elementary school children and Teens that combines an after school activity, Karate, with the convenience of after school pick up. We are a family owed business that understands your family’s needs.

ASK is an all in one package. In one location you can get the after school help your family needs, a sports activity to keep your children healthy and all the discipline and focus training you would expect from a martial art. We are not a daycare; we offer an alternative for families

ASK makes being a parent much easier. By the time your child is ready for pick up we have fully taken care of your child’s needs. After pick up from school and brought back to our facility our instructors follow a structured schedule; snack time, a karate class and quiet time to read or socialize with classmates.

The ASK program goes beyond normal after school care by providing instruction on the major life skills. It’s not just managed care. We teach focus, respect and discipline. Unlike regular after school programs our students are held accountable for their actions. Karate and positive peer pressure are used to teach lessons on how to be more disciplined. We don’t just tell them they are misbehaving. We teach them how to have better decision-making skills. They learn how to have better discipline from within and make better choices.

Side Kicks Family Karate:

Located in Rome NY, our staff has been teaching karate and self-defense to children and adults since 1994. Our philosophy is to always provide service of the highest quality and to meet or exceed the student’s expectations in every encounter with us.
