American Family Center Before & After-School Taekwondo Program

American Family Center of Alexandria American Family Center Before & After-School Taekwondo Program


Between social media, peer pressure, and the demands of school, kids today have a lot of distractions. Our before and after-school taekwondo program is the perfect activity for your child, providing benefits that go far beyond the dojo. Martial arts help kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors.

Serves as an Escape

Don’t let your child waste their childhood – move them away from the TV and into the dojo. In a world where kids are constantly connected and easily influenced by the content they see online, American Family Center aims to serve as an escape from the noise. We believe that attending our before and after-school taekwondo program will help students regain their focus, find relief from academic and social pressures, set goals for themselves, and experience a level of accomplishment and fulfillment that can’t be found virtually.

Discipline and Respect

We know what you’re probably thinking – “If my goal is to reduce my child’s screen time, why not just enroll them in any other sport?”

Great question! Unlike all other athletic activities, the martial arts focus on teaching life lessons just as much as they focus on teaching physical skills. Though its exact origins are not completely determined, Taekwondo is believed to have been around for thousands of years. Historically, this discipline didn’t just focus on the physical. It focused on the mental and emotional as well. Taekwondo requires students to demonstrate discipline and respect both in and out of the dojo. This means paying attention in class, referring to your instructors with the correct terminology, practicing at home, and respecting your parents and elders. At American Family Center we aren’t just creating amazing martial artists, we’re creating amazing people.

Instills Confidence

With the overwhelming presence of social and mass media, it’s harder than ever for young people to achieve confidence. That’s why American Family Center is so passionate about cultivating the self-esteem of each one of our students. The martial arts provide children with impressive new skills, an outlet for self-expression, increased physical fitness, and self-defense training. American Family Center has used our martial arts instruction to change the lives of thousands of students, and we want your child to be next.

Provides a Community of Athletes

Does your child struggle to make friends at school? Well, American Family Center will be a different story. At our school, we believe that community is one of the most important elements behind building talented martial artists. American Family Center is home to a group of kind, uplifting, and welcoming martial arts students who love the sport just as much as we do.

At American Family Center, we do not allow bullying, exclusivity, or intimidation of any sort. We hold our students to high standards and will do everything we can to ensure that your child has an amazing experience at our school.
