Darimar Martial Arts believes that the safety and well being of our community and its children are very important and therefore offers an after school program that will provide children with the tools and abilities they need to be successful in life. The staff at Darimar Martial Arts believes that an after school program will provide the right supervision and activities to challenge your child.

We strive to provide four main things in our after school program:

  • Keeping the kids safe during after school hours
  • Providing a nurturing environment that encourages their personal growth
  • Helping to improve kids academic achievements at school
  • Involving the kids in supervised constructive activities such as Tae Kwon Do training

The after school program has a wide variety of activities designed to meet the needs of the children through enriching their experiences and assisting them achieve academic success.

During free time, we put emphasis on physical activities during our program. DARIMAR Tae Kwon Do training offers everything that a growing body requires to stay physically and mentally challenged. A training session led by our instructors will prepare your child to go back and enjoy quality family time by showing off the new skills they’ve acquired!



While studying martial arts at DARIMAR, the after school program students will learn about self-discipline, respect, loyalty, and teamwork. Staff members will teach students to manage their behavior and handle stressful situations or overcome everyday obstacles in life such as:

  • How to make friends and get along with other students their age 
  • Resolving conflicts with their peers in an appropriate and non physical manner
  • Increasing his/her awareness of their surroundings and overall athletic ability
  • How important hard work and consistency is in order to achieve their goals

Through the belt ranking system, you can watch your child develop the “Yes, I Can!” attitude and observe as it carries over into school, home, socialization, as well as other sports. Our program is not any old daycare … we build champions that are prepared for a challenge!



We provide transportation from the schools 5 days a week; 2, 3 and 4 day rates are available as well. The program has been designed to assist parents with the tough job of giving your child the tools and skills needed to overcome their daily obstacles.
