We are interested in the needs of our student community. We want to hear from you! What are you looking for in a martial arts training environment? Does your child (or you) need to learn self-discipline, respect, and confidence? Do they need to see what commitment looks like, and learn how to self-motivate? Do they have ADHD or another learning difference that makes school difficult for them? Maybe they're shy and you're looking for something to help them "come out of their shell," or you homeschool and are looking for a physical outlet so your kids can make friends and meet a gym requirement. Or is it that your kids love TMNT, Ninjago, and the Karate Kid and they just walk around the house kicking and punching everything?!? We have so many unique situations at RSMA, but one thing is true throughout - we are a family. We look out for each other, we have the hard talks about discipline, about pushing through when the going gets tough, we work on skills that help people better navigate their world!


RSMA Schedule

 What am I looking at?   Pee-Wee Class: This class focuses on listening and following directions, respect, and self-control. Open to 3 - 5 year olds, this half hour long class utilizes a student/teacher ratio of no more than 3:1, so you know your little one is getting plenty of attention to help them work on the skills they are trying to master. Parent's of this class love how their kids are learning to listen, to control their bodies, and to move in a martial way. They also work on Stranger Safety in this class. (Students must be potty trained to enter this class)  Junior Class: The majority of our new students fit into the Junior Class. This class is offered 3 days/week, but junior class students are also able to utilize the Study Hall classes, which opens up their options to 5 days/week. We recommend students come to 2 - 3 classes/week. This class works a lot on self-discipline. As one of the main indicators of future success, self-discipline is considered a vital skill at RSMA. This class also talks a lot about respect, including respecting parents, siblings, and teachers. Of course, we are a karate school - students in this class work on the basic movements necessary to master on the journey to black belt. All of the basic blocks, kicks, and punches are drilled in a fun and engaging way that helps keep kids motivated and ready to come back for more! Parent's are welcome to take Junior Class with their kids.  Adult Class: All teens and adults ages 16 & up fit into this class. Many times we will start 13 - 15 year olds in this class as well, but it depends on the maturity of the student and why they are looking to train in martial arts. The adult class starts practical self-defense training right away, often in a work-out paced environment. Adult students also work on advancing through the ranks towards black belt, but the material is presented in a much more direct way, with lessons often going back to how to apply moves in a self-defense situation. Many of our parents and older siblings take this class, or take a combination of junior class with their kids and adult class by themselves. This is also a great class to take if you're looking for an activity to do with your teenage son or daughter.  Study Hall: This class is open to all ranks and ages below black belt, so there is often a large mix of different types of people in attendance. Martial Arts practitioners need to practice at home in order to get the most out of their training, and this class teachers students how to practice effectively. Students wishing to work on a particular skill can also request help with that skill during this class. Students in their trial period are welcome to come to Study Hall, but the class can seem a little intimidating, so we recommend that new students try a junior class or two first.  The other classes on the schedule are only open to students currently enrolled at RSMA, please see your head instructor if you have questions about other class options for your kids.
