Why Choose the DARIMAR Martial Arts After School Program (2019 – 2020)

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 three main things in our after school program:
  • Keeping the kids safe during after school hours
  • Helping to improve kids academic achievements at school
  • Involving the kids in supervised constructive activities such as Tae Kwon Do training

Activities + Tae Kwon Do

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.
